Hays PD on Teen Seat Belt Use
The Hays Police Department along with other law enforcement agencies and the Kansas Department of Transportation are trying to increase the usage of seat belts among teenagers. Police Sergeant Dan Koerner says there will be enhanced enforcement March 11th through the 22nd.
Despite efforts to educate teens about seat belt use, this age group continues to have some of the lowest rates. During the two-week period, there will be an increased law enforcement presence in Hays enforcing all traffic laws, but especially seat belt laws.
