Fall Seat Belt Campaign going on now

The Fall seatbelt campaign is ongoing our district.  Beginning yesterday, the West Parry Sound OPP will be focusing on seat belt enforcement where police will be educating road users in an effort to change driving behaviour and save lives.  Every occupant in a motor vehicle must wear a seat belt and drivers are legally responsible for ensuring all passengers under the age of 16 are using a seat belt correctly or are securely buckled into a child car seat.  Officers also remind the public that the number of occupants in a motor vehicle is limited to the number of seat belts meaning one person, one seat belt.  A driver or passenger over the age of 16 who is found not wearing a seat belt can be charged and face a fine totaling $240. Detachment Commander Ron Campbell says wearing a seatbelt and ensuring your children are properly restrained in car or booster seats is the best bet to avoid death or injury in a collision. Do your part and make sure everyone in your vehicle is wearing a seat belt before you leave your driveway.
