Police To Step Up Seatbelt Enforcement As Part Of Thanksgiving ‘Safe Arrival’ Campaign


Beginning Saturday through Monday, Nov. 27, the Arkansas City Police Department will join many other law enforcement agencies across the state, including the Kansas Highway Patrol, in the Kansas Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign.

Although all Kansas Traffic Laws will be enforced, this additional provision will actively enforce occupant protection laws, according to a news release from the police department. ACPD will also provide education that reminds us of Buckling Up to Save Lives.

“Buckle Up, your friends and family are counting on you to arrive safely this Thanksgiving,” the ACPD says. ‘Click it. Don’t risk it.”

The campaign is supported by a grant via the Kansas Department of Transportation.
