Police departments state wide have committed to being out in force to write tickets to drivers not wearing a seatbelt.
In 2012, eleven people died in fatal collisions on Oklahoma roadways during the Memorial Day holiday. That’s up from seven the previous year. Two of these deaths were alcohol related and four were not using required vehicle restraints.
Broken Arrow and Tulsa police departments are just two of the several nearby forces that will be writing tickets.
Law enforcement will band together to increase enforcement of traffic laws to reduce the number of travelers that are injured or killed in motor vehicle crashes during the Memorial Day Holiday.
In Tulsa, a seatbelt ticket will cost you $20.
