Enforcement to focus on seat belt use
Drivers in Johnson County are warned to be alert to heightened traffic enforcement as additional deputies with the Johnson County Sheriff's Office will be placed on the roadways to aggressively enforce all Kansas traffic laws.
Supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation, the deputies will be participating in the Kansas Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign, May 22 through June 4. As such, there will be strict enforcement of the Safety Belt Use and Child Passenger Safety Acts during that time.
The Johnson County Sheriff's Office is among 130 law enforcement agencies, statewide that will participate in Click It or Ticket.
Their aim is to drastically reduce the number of preventable deaths and injuries that occur when unbelted drivers and passengers are involved in traffic crashes.
