The April long weekend seatbelt campaign proved to be a success with several seat-belt charges being laid along with other Highway Traffic Act offences. Wearing a seat belt properly is a legal requirement for all motor vehicle drivers and passengers in Canada. Failure to heed to the law can have tragic results, approximately 25% of all people killed in automobile collisions were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. We thank all community members who make a point of wearing their seatbelts and making our roadways a little safer.
