ISP warns of seatbelt, child safety crackdown | News
Illinois State Police District 19 Commander, Captain Morrie Fraser announced that District 19 Troopers will conduct an Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrol (OREP) in White County during the month of February.
OREP allows the ISP to target an area with saturation patrols that focus on traffic violations and related compliance with safety belt and child safety seat laws. Safety belt enforcement zones will also be set up to ensure the driver and passengers are buckled up. Illinois law requires all vehicle passengers (front and back) to be buckled up!
The objective of this program is to increase compliance of occupant restraint laws through education, child seat inspections, and enforcement.
