Grant bolsters 'Buckle Up Arizona' campaign

Posted

The Arizona Department of Public Safety's "Buckle Up Arizona" campaign is underway and will continue until June  5.

The Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety awarded DPS a $20,000 grant to fund overtime and other expenses for the upcoming  seat-belt enforcement  campaign.  The campaign began May 23,

As of May 10, state troopers  had investigated 112 fatal crashes on highways and interstates this year. Of the individuals killed in those crashes, 43 people were not wearing seat belts, DPS reported.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seat belt use reduces the risk of serious crash-related injuries and fatalities by approximately 50 percent.

“The department is grateful for the continued support from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and Director Gutier,”  Lt. Col. Jenna Mitchell, assistant director of the highway patrol division. “We will continue working together to emphasize the importance of wearing a seat belt.”
