Teen Seat Belt Enforcement Planned in Lower Saucon Twp.

The Lower Saucon Township Police Department announced Wednesday that seat belt enforcement activities as part of a statewide Teen Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization will be conducted Oct. 16-27 to complement National Teen Driver Safety Week. The enforcement activities will be conducted from 7 to 10 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. in the area of Saucon Valley High School and on other roadways in Lower Saucon Township.

“The enforcement, coupled with educational outreach efforts, aims to increase teen seat belt use and raise awareness of the state’s primary law stating all vehicle occupants under 18 years old must wear a seat belt,” a news release stated. “Drivers and front seat passengers over 18 years old who are cited for another traffic violation will receive a second ticket if they’re unbuckled.”
