Illinois State Police To Conduct Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrols | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Effingham, IL-(Effingham Radio)- Illinois State Police (ISP) Troop 9 Commander, Captain Nathan Douglas, announces  the ISP will conduct Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrols (OREP) in Marion, Hamilton,  Effingham, and White County during August. OREPs allow the ISP to focus on safety belt and  child safety seat laws. Illinois law requires all vehicle passengers (front and back) to be buckled  up. 

Safety belts are still one of the most effective safety devices in vehicles, estimated to save nearly  14,000 lives each year. Half of vehicle occupants killed in a traffic crash were not properly buckled  up. The objective of this program is to increase occupant restraint compliance through education,  child seat inspections, and enforcement.
