South Carolina Drivers Could Win Sandwich for Using Seat Belts

December 1, 2009

People wearing a seat belt when they are stopped by the South Carolina Highway Patrol in three counties will get a coupon for a free chicken sandwich.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported the Highway Patrol is working with Chick-fil-A in Charleston, Berkley and Dorchester counties to encourage seat belt use. The offer is good through the New Year’s holiday.

Lance Cpl. Bob Beres says troopers won’t stop people wearing seat belts just to give them a free sandwich. Beres says coupons will be given out at driver safety-checkpoints, as well as to those stopped for violations.

He says violators will still get the ticket.

Also, violators not wearing their seat belt will get a $25 ticket for the seat belt violation.
