Chief Kessler Warns: Strict Seat Belt Enforcement


Beginning October 30 through November 3, the Moundridge Police Department will join other Kansas law enforcement agencies to stop what has been likened to an epidemic kn Kansas. In 2016, 44 children ages 0-19 lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas. Sadly, almost half of those children were not wearing their seat belts.

Starting on October 30 through November 3, law enforcement across the state will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than 20 years, officers have educated and warned drivers and passengers regarding the importance of using seat belts while in their vehicle.
There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to anyone who does not obey Kansas law.

Chief Jay Kessler says, "Even one child's death is unacceptable. Please slow down, especially in school zones, eliminate the distractions and ALWAYS buckle up.".
