Seat belt campaign urges drivers to buckle up in Arizona

Posted at 7:10 AM, May 22, 2017

Buckle Up Arizona kicks off on Monday! It's a campaign that makes a big push to enforce seat belt safety.

Over 20 agencies around the state are making a big effort to enforce Arizona's seat belt and child safety laws.

DPS doesn't take this lightly, and issued over 20,000 seat belt citations last year.

Over the next two weeks, you'll notice ADOT also helping spread the message through their overhead message boards with seat belt related content.

Officials want to remind drivers how simply buckling a seat belt can save lives.
