BOOZE and BELTS MOBILIZATION

To increase safety belt use and reduce drunken driving, Village of Walworth Police Department, Lake Geneva Police Department, and other surrounding departments

will mobilize for the statewide “Booze and Belts” campaign from Dec. 12 to 20.

“Deaths and injuries in traffic crashes are especially tragic for families this time of year,

so our officers will be out in force during the Booze and Belts mobilization looking

for unbuckled and impaired motorists,” said Officer Brian Lantz.

High-visibility law enforcement mobilizations, like Booze and Belts,

are helping to save lives and reduce injuries.

In the past 10 years, fatalities from alcohol-related crashes dropped from

348 in 2003 to 185 in 2013, which is a 47 percent reduction. 

Injuries from alcohol-related crashes dropped from 6,445 in 2003 to 2,660 in 2013,

which is a 59 percent reduction. In addition, seat belt use in Wisconsin is at

an all-time high with nearly 85 percent of drivers and passengers buckling up,

according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

“We’re making progress toward the goal of zero preventable traffic deaths in Wisconsin, but  far too many people are still needlessly killed or injured in traffic crashes,” says Chief Severt.“We are striving for voluntary compliance with traffic laws,

so we urge you to make the responsible decision to buckle up and drive sober.

But if you make an irresponsible decision, we will stop you and we won’t give

you a warning or a second chance.”

Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 killer of kids.


Why? In many cases, children are either not properly buckled into their safety seats or parents don’t realize that a booster seat

is vital to ensuring children fit

safely in their vehicle’s seat belt.

Don’t take a chance.

Have your child’s safety seat inspected!
