  • We enforce the laws to save lives




    If there is one thing I could urge all motorists – drivers, passengers, front seat, back seat, all ages – to do every time you get in a vehicle, it’s buckle up.

    It is the single-most effective way to avoid being killed in a crash. Would you ever ride a roller coaster without the harness down? Would you ever skydive without a parachute? When you ride in a motor vehicle without a seat belt, you are taking a huge risk. One you can’t afford.
