Seatbelt Safety Message

By  | 

seatbelt1The following message is from Mr. David Barrow at the Mayor’s office:

As the holiday season approaches, I would like to remind everyone of
the important usage of wearing your seatbelt.  A resolution supporting
the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission’s (LHSC) efforts to increase
seat belt use in Louisiana was passed at the October LMA Officer and
Board Meeting in Baton Rouge. 

The Local Road Safety Program is partnering with LHSC to remind
everyone of the new law passed this year regarding seatbelt usage.  All
passengers in a motor vehicle must now buckle up including those in the
backseat. Recent horrific crashes, such as the one in Baton Rouge over
the Thanksgiving Holiday where five unbelted children were killed,
highlight the need for all drivers and passengers to buckle up.  A
recent serious accident in Central on Denham Rd in which the
driver was ejected should also serve as a reminder.
