Buckle That Seatbelt, the Kansas Highway Patrol is Watching

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers are on the highways this week checking for seat belt use and looking for impaired drivers.

AAA of Kansas says more than 43 million Americans will hit the highway during this Thanksgiving holiday, about 4 million in our region. The busiest travel weekend of the year also means an increase in the number of car crashes. The highway patrol and officers from other agencies are on the roads looking for dangerous drivers. Chris Bortz with the Kansas Department of Transportation says drivers not wearing seatbelts will be pulled over and ticketed.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says nearly 350 people were killed in car crashes over the Thanksgiving weekend last year and half of those victims were not wearing seatbelts.
