Dunwoody Police say they will begin cracking down Monday on people who are not wearing their seatbelts while driving.
The department is joining a national and state campaign of law enforcement agencies to enforce seatbelt laws around the clock.
Maybe you’ve made wearing a seatbelt a habit; maybe you haven’t. Police cite an interesting statistic: In 2010, more than 22,000 people were killed in a car accident and 51 percent were not wearing seatbelts when it happened.
Motorists from 18 to 34 are the most at risk. In 2010, this demographic did not wear a seatbelt during an accident 62 percent of the time, according to the National Highway Safety Administration.
