(STEP) Special Traffic Enforcement Program
2019 SAFE Enforcement Period
The Kansas Department of Transportation and the SAFE Program will host a two-week seat belt enforcement emphasis beginning
February 25 and ending on March 8, targeting teen drivers and their occupants.
In 2018, almost half of all Kansas teens who died in motor vehicle crashes on Kansas roads were not wearing a seatbelt. Enforcement of seatbelt laws is the most effective way to encourage seat belt use and ultimately save lives. Various methods have been used to educate teens and adults about the dangers of driving unbelted.
We have learned that nothing impacts human behavior more than vigorous enforcement.
