Police Crack Down On Seatbelt Use.
According to studies, seat belts are the most effective safety feature available in cars today but still nearly one in five Americans fail to regularly wear one. So during this holiday season, the Gautier Police Department is cracking down on seat belt use in hopes of reducing roadway fatalities. Statistics show in 2015 313 lives were lost in Mississippi by drivers who chose not to wear their seat belts. This seat belt campaign coincides with the driver sober or get pulled over safety campaign.
