Local Police To Hold Easter Seatbelt Campaign

Local police will be watching for proper seatbelt use over the coming long weekend.

Superior East Ontario Provincial Police Constable Trevor Tremblay explains the local detachment is participating in the Easter Long Weekend Seatbelt Campaign Friday through Monday, checking to ensure all occupants of vehicles are wearing seatbelts - and Tremblay emphasizes seatbelts are very important for safety.

Constable Tremblay also reminds someone who isn't wearing a seatbelt is also a danger to others in the vehicle, as they could function as a loose projectile in the vehicle.

He further warns violating seatbelt rules can mean two demerit points for a driver, as well as a minimum fine of $240.
