This Easter long weekend the Halton Regional Police Service will be participating in the Provincial seat belt campaign.

The campaign will run from Friday, April 18, 2014 – Monday, April 21, 2014.

Road users should expect to see much higher volumes of traffic over the weekend, making it a particularly important weekend for all drivers, passengers and young children to be properly restrained, regardless of how short a trip people are taking.

“A properly worn seat belt greatly increases the chances of surviving a motor vehicle collision and officers will be out this weekend checking for compliance. A reminder to drivers should you choose not to buckle up you could face a fine of $240 and 2 demerit points which will remain on your driving record for two years from the date of the offence.
