Wyoming troopers are looking for seat belts

Posted:

Wyoming drivers should expect to see a few more state troopers on the highways over the next two weeks.

Running until June 2, extra troopers will roam the highways looking out for seat belt and child restraint use as part of a safety belt enforcement campaign.

The campaign coincides with Memorial Day as the holiday marks the start of the summer travel season.

Officers say they will use a zero tolerance policy when it comes to seat belt use.

"When we find somebody violating another law, say speeding, we look to make sure that they're wearing their seat belts.  If they're not, zero tolerance, we're going to issue a citation on that also," said Captain Carl Clements with the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

Clements adds the campaign is part of the patrol's strategic plan, which aims to reduce highway fatalities to a minimum.
