The Spring Hill Police Department will join several other Kansas law enforcement agencies from February 23 through March 6 in an effort to stop a growing problem. In 2014, 34 teenagers lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas. Of those teens, 63 were not properly restrained.
In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement agencies from across Kansas will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than thirty years, officers have educated and warned passengers and drivers regarding the importance of using restraints while in their vehicle.
There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey traffic laws, including speeding, texting, or failing to buckle up.
