During the enforcement effort, deputies issued a total of 45 traffic citations including: 5 seat belt tickets; 34 speeding tickets; 6 other traffic violations.
Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seatbelt, nearly one in five Missouri motorists are still not making it click. Even more concerning, six out of ten Missourians killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled.
“Seatbelts are your single best defense in a crash,” states, Sgt. Jason Weggemann. “We will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple , smart choice to buckle up and Arrive Alive.”
