    Watch out: Seat belt enforcement blitz planned

    By State House News Service

    Boston, Mass. - State and local police and public safety officials will launch a seat belt law “enforcement blitz” Thursday featuring additional traffic patrols and public awareness efforts between July 23 and July 30.
    Organizers say more than 30 percent of Massachusetts drivers fail to wear seat belts even though state law requires it.
    Efforts to pass a tougher seat belt law enforcement bill have failed on Beacon Hill, despite the lure of more federal highway safety funds.
    Officials will describe details of the enforcement effort at the southeastern Massachusetts State Police barracks in Dartmouth. That area of the state has the lowest level of seat belt law compliance in the state, with 41 percent of drivers opting to ride unbuckled.
    Among those scheduled to call for higher compliance rates are Major Bruce Gordon, Commanding Officer, Massachusetts State Police Troop D; Phil Weiser, Regional Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration; Emily Ring, Court-Related Program Manager, Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts; Tracy Tarvers, Brain Injury Association representative and automobile crash survivor, and local police officers

    It's a secondary offense in MA, so they need other crap to pull you over...

    Edit: Wiki says MA also has the loest seatbelt use in the country, unless I'm missing something [ame][/ame]
