Re: Thanksgiving Holiday Seatbelt Mobilization

 

The Thanksgiving holidays is one of the busiest time of year, and to help save lives on our roadways, the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department will be teaming with other state and local law enforcement agencies across the country to crack down on seatbelt violations.

Statistics show that the Thanksgiving holidays period can turn deadly for motor vehicle occupants, something that is made more dangerous when the occupants of motor vehicles fail to wear their safety belts.

During the week of November 20, 2017, through November 26, 2017, Officers with the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department will be working the State Seatbelt Mobilization. Extra officers will be out and about looking for occupant restraint violations. Arkansas State Law requires that all front seat passengers and any passenger under 15 years of age be buckled up. Children who are less than 6 years of age and weighing less than 60lbs shall be restrained in a child safety seat.

It only takes a second to buckle up. The Texarkana Police Department wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday and asks that you take the time and fasten your seatbelt. Please be safe traveling wherever it may be.
