FAYETTEVILLE - The Fayette County
Sheriff's Office will conduct two checkpoints at the end of the month in an effort to increase compliance with the seat belt laws.
Sheriff Steve Kessler said the first
checkpoint will be on April 29 on W.Va. Route 16 in Fayetteville. The second
will be on April 30 on W.Va. Route 16 in the Oak Ridge area. Both seat belt
checkpoints will be between noon and 4 p.m.
Deputies will be handing out pamphlets
explaining the new seat belt laws.
More than 200 citations were issued
during these special enforcement patrols, according to Kessler. The checkpoints
are funded by the Southern Regional Highway Safety Program.
