State Police Remind Motorists To Buckle Up At State Parks

WIBX

New York State Police and the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation are reminding motorist to “buckle up”  while visiting state parks.

Police say they’ve seen a disturbing trend of lower seatbelt and child restraint use in proximity of state parks located outside large urban areas.

The two agencies are teaming up for a joint education campaign that will run from July 12th through July 27th.

Officials say that coincides with one of the peak times that visitors travel to state parks.

“Seat belts and car seats increase the chance of survival when driving at all speeds. Tragedy can strike even at the lowest speeds. Park visitors should adhere to all the rules of the road while in a state park and that includes buckling up and securing young children in a car seat,” said Chief Richard O’Donnell of the New York State Park Police.
