Increased Seatbelt Enforcement in Indy Coming End of the Month


Starting towards the end of October the Independence Police Department will join other Kansas law enforcement agencies to stop what has become an epidemic in Kansas. According to the 2017 Kansas observational seatbelt study, children are much more likely to be buckled up if the driver is wearing their seatbelt. If the driver is buckled, about 98% of the children are restrained. If the driver is not buckled, only about 29% of the observed children were buckled. IPD want adults to model good driving behaviors for children.


Starting October 28th and running through November 1st law enforcement across Kansas will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than 20 years, officers have educated and warned drivers and passengers regarding the importance of using seatbelts while in their vehicle.
