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.
