The Town of Parker Police Department says it will be conducting a month long seatbelt enforcement campaign during the month of August. Officers will be strictly enforcing seatbelt violations with citations. The driver of a vehicle is not only responsible for themselves but also for any passengers under the age of 16 and all children required to be in child restraint seats.
Any child under the age of 5 needs to be properly secured in a car seat, according to Arizona state law. Children between 5 and 8 years old and who are not more than 4′ 9″ tall need to be in a booster seat.
Parker P.D. says it will be placing extra officers on the roads during various times, using grant money from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
“The Town of Parker Police Department and the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety would like to remind everyone to wear your seatbelt and arrive at your destination safely.”
