Seatbelt Check to occur on May 30th and June 6th from 1600-1900 on 6&209
Eastern Pike Regional Police to Participate in Seat-Belt Enforcement
Westfall - The Eastern Pike Regional Police Department today announced seat-belt enforcement activities as part of a national Click It or Ticket seat-belt enforcement mobilization, from May 21 through June 10. The law enforcement activities will be conducted May 30, 2012 and June 6, 2012 from 1600-1900hrs on Routes 6&209 and other roadways in Matamoras Borough and Westfall Township.
The enforcement, coupled with educational outreach efforts, will raise awareness of a law that went into effect in December. The primary law states all vehicle occupants under 18 must wear a seat belt. Drivers and front-seat passengers over 18 years old who are cited for another traffic violation will receive a second ticket if they’re unbuckled.
PennDOT data for Pike County shows that in 2011, 3 people who were killed in crashes were not wearing their seat belt.
