Wear That Seatbelt!

The Tri-County Traf­fic Safety Part­ner­ship has announced an increased enfor­c­ment effort is under­way con­cern­ing seat belt and child restraint vio­la­tions, now until May 8th.

The increased enforce­ment comes after the Angola Police Depart­ment said the Indi­ana Crim­i­nal Jus­tice Insti­tute has iden­ti­fied Steuben County as hav­ing a higher than aver­age num­ber of per­sonal injury and fatal crashes involv­ing unre­strained occu­pants over the last five years.

It’s for that rea­son that the Part­ner­ship has got­ten a grant that will fund the increased enforce­ment. The Part­ner­ship is made up of police agen­cies in Steuben, DeKalb and LaGrange Counties.
