The Martinsburg Police Department would like to inform you of some important information relating to your safety. In the year 2006 nearly 43,000 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes. Over 30% of those killed were not restrained by a seatbelt. Over 15,000 lives were saved by seatbelts during 2006. For individuals between the ages of 2 and 34 motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death. The Martinsburg Police Department would like to remind everyone to wear their seatbelts. It may save your life one day. In an effort to remind everyone to wear their seatbelts we will be conducting a Seatbelt Check point on Saturday, May 24, 2008 between 12 o’clock noon and 4 o’clock pm in the 200 block of W Moler Ave. This is in conjunction with law enforcement agencies nationwide for the National Click It or Ticket mobilization.
