Police on lookout for seat belt violations

Officers with the Seymour Police Department will be conducting 36 hours of additional Operation Pullover-funded traffic safety patrols today and Friday.

Patrol officers will be working in all parts of Seymour with the primary focus of enforcing seat belt and child restraint laws, according to a news release.

During 2014, Seymour officers investigated 928 property-damage and 63 personal-injury traffic crashes.

“The time period around spring break was chosen because it is a good time for us to remember that one of the best things we can do for our loved ones is to always make sure they are properly restrained when in a motor vehicle,” Chief Bill Abbott said.
