Deputies Have Busy Holiday

KSAL StaffDecember 1, 2014

During the Thanksgiving Traffic Enforcement campaign just completed, The Saline County Sheriff’s Office conducted overtime saturation patrols to primarily enforce Kansas’ impaired driving and occupant restraint laws.

Over this period, November 24-30, officers issued 45 safety belt citations, gave 13 warnings, 8 other citations and 6 arrests. All told, officers made 55 enforcement stops during the campaign.

According to Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, “the idea behind enforcement campaigns like this is, first and foremost, to save lives and prevent injury in a way that encourages safer driving decisions in the future. Safety begins by adopting two very simple and inflexible rules: ‘Absolutely no one rides in my car unless buckled in properly,’ and ‘I don’t ride with any driver who has been drinking, including myself, for any reason.’ Remember that, while the campaign may be over, the enforcement of occupant restraint and alcohol laws is ongoing.”

The Thanksgiving Holiday Traffic Enforcement Campaign was supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
