University Police to Step Up Seat Belt Enforcement This Week

Southeast Missouri State University Police will join efforts with statewide law enforcement in a high visibility effort this week to encourage more motorists to buckle up — and save more lives. Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, 13 percent of Missouri motorists are still not making it click. Even worse, 63 percent of occupants killed in 2018 crashes in Missouri were unrestrained. “Motorists should be prepared for stepped up Click It or Ticket enforcement on Feb. 14,” said Ken Gullett, captain of University police operations. "University Police will be on campus on Wednesday, Feb. 13, to remind you seat belts can – and do – save lives.” Buckle Up and Arrive Alive.
