GREENE COUNTY, Mo.-- The Greene County Sheriff’s office are joining statewide law enforcement in an aggressive youth seat belt crack down.

Mar. 15-31 law enforcement will start an aggressive youth seat belt mobilization crack down on Missouri’s seat belt law violators to reduce highway fatalities.

According to the Sheriff, 67 percent of Missouri teens wear their seat belts when driving or riding in a motor vehicle and eight out of ten teens killed in traffic accidents are not wearing their seat belts.

Under the Graduated Driver’s License law, teens are required to wear their seat belt as it is a primary offense, meaning that teens can be pulled over solely for not wearing their seat belt.

“Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up seat belt enforcement,’ said Sheriff Jim Arnott. “ We’ll be out there to remind you seat belts can – and do – save lives.”
