FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARCH 4, 2014
The City of Bethlehem Police Department will be taking part in seat-belt enforcement activities as part of a statewide seat-belt enforcement mobilization, from March 3-21, 2014. The law enforcement activities will be conducted March 6 through March 30 at Liberty High School and Bethlehem Catholic High School.
The enforcement, coupled with eductational outreach efforts, aims to increase teen seat-belt use and raise awareness of the state’s primary law stating all vehicle occupants under 18 years old must wear a seat belt. Drivers and front-seat passengers over 18 years old who are cited for another traffic violation will receive a second ticket if they’re unbuckled.
