NY State Troopers To Set Up Seat Belt Checkpoints


seat-beltNew York State Police are preparing to launch their annual Thanksgiving seat belt enforcement campaign for holiday travel period. The statewide crack down on motorists who don’t use seat belts is set to begin on Monday and continue through next week’s Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Troopers will be setting up dozens of roadside checkpoints around the state as well as running patrols to look for motorists violating the state’s mandatory seat belt usage law.

State police say troopers issued nearly 19,000 safety belt tickets statewide during last year’s Thanksgiving holiday enforcement campaign.
