Seat Belt Law Is Helping Find More Than Seat Belt Violators

Enforcing Kentucky's seat belt law is helping police turn up more than just seat belt violators.

Vehicle enforcement officers say the recent Click-It-Or-Ticket campaign led to the arrests of a number of drunk drivers, drug suspects and wanted fugitives.

It also helps police stop people who are driving without insurance.

Vehicle enforcement officers say many drivers have a the wrong idea about why they're being pulled over.

“A lot of people have the misconception that the police are just out trying to generate revenue or whatever by issuing tickets,” Greg Reams said.

Police say enforcing seat belt laws will help reduce insurance rates for drivers in Kentucky and provide grants for law enforcement.
