MONTPELIER POLICE DEPARTMENTMontpelier, Idaho - 208-847-1324
SEAT BELT COMPLIANCE
Montpelier PD is teaming up with the Office of Highway Safety this November to conduct overtime patrols, educating and ticketing vehicle occupants that are not properly restrained.
Last year, Idaho’s observed seat belt use rate reached an all time high of 86%, yet more than half (56%) of motor vehicle occupants killed in crashes were not wearing seat belts.
The two-week mobilization will run Nov. 16-29 and coincides with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s campaign during the busy holiday travel season.
