More Kansans Wearing Seat Belts

KDOT compressed










WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — More Kansas drivers have been buckling up, but scores of citations are still being issued to drivers in the state who aren't wearing their seat belts. Dave Corp, law enforcement liaison for the Kansas Department of Transportation, says seat belt usage has steadily climbed over recent years in Kansas and is now at 81 percent statewide. In Sedgwick County, nearly 91 percent of adults and about 87.5 percent of children were using seat belts in 2013. The Wichita Eagle reports adults in Cowley, Harvey and Sumner counties also topped the 2013 statewide average, while Butler and Reno counties fell a few percentage points below the state average. More than 1,000 people, however, were cited in Sedgwick County last month for not wearing their seat belts.
