Annual seatbelt safety reward program starts
Local teenage drivers may get the shock of their lives in coming weeks when an officer pulls them over for doing something right: wearing their seatbelts.
This year marks the 14th anniversary of the Craig Police Department’s safety belt awareness program, which is aimed at rewarding good, legal behavior. Teen drivers who are pulled over by on-duty CPD officers and are wearing their seatbelts will receive a prize donated by more than 40 local businesses. And with between 200 and 300 prizes to give out, CPD will be busy looking for safe drivers – and their passengers, who also can receive prizes for being buckled up.
The program is aimed at being a “purely positive contact,” according to CPD officer Bryan Gonzales, and even if the teen drivers are pulled over and found to not be wearing a seatbelt or to have passengers not wearing a seatbelt, tickets will not be issued. Those breaking the law just won’t get a reward, he said.
