District 12 Illinois State Police (ISP) have released enforcement figures from recent patrols that were conducted on June 21st. The patrols specifically focused on seat belt violations and took place in Clay and Effingham Counties.
Violations Enforcement Activity
- Safety belt citations 32
- Child restraint citations 0
- Total citations 40
- Total warnings 10
According to the ISP, motorists willingly put themselves in danger by not wearing the proper safety restraints when driving. They also endanger those riding with them by neglecting to use seat belts and the required child restraint devices. Last month’s patrols reinforce the important message of buckling up by targeting those break the law.
