Youth Seat belt

Post- Enforcement Report

Polk County Sheriff Department's Youth seat belt Enforcement Campaign was a Success in Polk County Missouri- We participated in the statewide youth seat belt mobilization conducted March 15th -31st. During the enforcement offort, deputies issued a total of 23 traffic tickets including 4 seat belt tickets; 1 speeding ticket; and 18 other violations. 4 Subjects, were arrested on outstanding warrants, as a result of the crackdown. "Seatbelts are your single best defense in a crash," stated Undersheriff Rod Parks. "Law-enforcement will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to buckle up and arrive alive." Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, 33 percent of teens do not buckle up. Eight out of ten Missouri teens killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled. Buckle up and arrive alive. For more information on Missouri seatbelt usage, Visit
