Georgia to Push Motorists to Use Seat Belts Over Thanksgiving Holiday

November 18, 2009

Highway safety authorities in Georgia are making a push to get motorists to buckle up in hopes of reducing the number of fatalities over the Thanksgiving travel period.

Starting this week, concentrated patrols will check for seat belt violators on interstates during the day and seat belt road checks will try to catch seat belt violators on state and county roads at night.

The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is launching its traditional Click It or Ticket effort at the same time as its Rural Roads seat belt crackdown this year.

During a 102-hour period over Thanksgiving last year, 102 people died and another 1,457 were injured on Georgia roads.
