Kansas law enforcement to crack down on seatbelt violators


GIRARD, Kans. — Law enforcement across the state of Kansas are cracking down on seat belt violators.

“Its important for us to set a good example for our children. If we are setting a good example of wearing our seat belts they’ll do it in the future. as technology gets better safety gets better and its taking the extra step to ensure that we make it to our destination safe,” said Chris Wilson, Girard Police Chief.

The campaign runs through the end of the week.
