CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango County Traffic Safety Board is backing a contest to educate school aged children about the importance of buckling up.
As part of its “Seatbelts Save Lives Campaign,” the Traffic Safety Board is sponsoring a poster contest for school children who attend schools in Chenango County. The objective is to create a poster which illustrates the dangers of not wearing a seatbelt while driving or riding, including the possible injuries and other consequences that could result by not taking the time to buckle up.
Seatbelt use is a trending concern among police agencies thorughout the county. Hopes are to curb that concern by reaching riders and future drivers at a young age, explained Traffic Safety Board Chairman Randy Gibbon.
