Traffic enforcement campaign begins Saturday

(KNZA)--The Hiawatha Police Department will be joining many other law enforcement agencies across the state—including the Kansas Highway Patrol—in the Kansas Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign, beginning Saturday, November 18 through Sunday, November 26.

Although all Kansas Traffic Laws will be enforced, a release says officers will be actively enforcing the state's occupant protection laws.

The increased enforcement is part of an effort to ensure residents' safe travel during the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Hiawatha Police Department will also provide education that serves as a reminder that buckling up saves lives.

A grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will support overtime enforcement efforts.

This Thanksgiving Holiday, make sure to buckle up. If you don’t make occupant protection a habit now, start a new tradition!
