Police urge drivers, passengers to buckle up | Crime
Oregon police urged drivers to drive sober and passengers to buckle up to avoid preventable traffic deaths. Police said officers will take part in a statewide law enforcement effort next week to thwart drunken driving and encourage drivers and passengers to use their seat belts.
The Oregon Police Department will participate in the state Department of Transportation’s "Booze & Belts" mobilization beginning Saturday through Dec. 21, when agencies will crack down on impaired and unbuckled motorists.
According to the DOT, last year in Wisconsin, there were approximately 27,000 convictions for drunken driving and nearly 105,000 convictions for failure to fasten safety belts.
