Media Release RESULTS: Enhanced Safety Belt & Child Safety Seat Patrols

On February 16, 2020, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office completed a joint effort to educate the public about safety belt and child seat laws. During the two week period, the Sheriff’s Office completed nearly 1,500 traffic stops, mostly for speeding. The good news to share is that safety belt violations generated a low percentage of the traffic stops, but speeding and mobile phone usage still remain an issue.

Here are the results:

Total Traffic Stops: 1,498 (between 2/3/20 – 2/16/20)
🚗 Speed: 486 (32%)
📞 Operating motor vehicle while using mobile electronic device: 146 (9%)
⛔️ Fail to obey traffic control device: 144 (9%)
🚔 Safety belts: 41 (<3%)
