Seat belt compliance checks will include children under the age of four, who must be secured in a child restraint device. Children under the age of six must be secured in a child restraint system, and all front seat occupants must be wearing seat belts.

If violations are found regarding seat belt laws, the law enforcement officer must issue a citation. During this blitz only sworn law enforcement officers will participate. All officers at the checkpoints will be in uniform and operating marked police cars.
