KHP Sees Seatbelt Citations Increase

KSCB News - March 16, 2015 3:39 pm

A seatbelt citation campaign aimed at teenagers resulted in more than twice as many citations this year than in 2014.

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers and law enforcement officers across the state issued 265 seatbelt citations to teen drivers during an enforcement action between Feb. 23 and March 6. The effort put special emphasis on patrols around Kansas high schools.

The campaign also issued 344 citations to adult drivers, as well as 42 child-restraint citations and 224 other citations such as outstanding warrants, texting violations and speeding.

The patrol said in a news release the same campaign in 2014 resulted in 123 seatbelt citations to drivers ages 14 through 17, while the citations to adults decreased from 493 issued last year.
