NY State Parks Police Cracking Down on Buckling Up
If you are visiting New York State Parks this summer, make sure you are obeying the seat belt and car seat laws within the parks. Park Police will be cracking down with their latest campaign. According to News 10 ABC, there is a campaign and a crackdown happening at New York State Parks with the New York State Police, the Parks Police, and the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee.
The campaign is called "BUNY in the Parks". It is to enforce and educate drivers and passengers to make sure all visitors are properly buckled up while enjoying the parks across the state. They are also hoping to teach the importance of securing kids in child safety seats. The campaign will run through August 10th.
Now that most of the New York State parks have opened for everyone to get out and enjoy, police want to make sure everyone is safe traveling in the parks and are obeying seatbelt and safety seat laws.
The DMV Commissioner and the head of the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee said,
“New York has so many beautiful parks and they are great places to enjoy the outdoors during this difficult time, but I urge New Yorkers to enjoy them responsibly. Just because you are driving in a park does not mean you don’t need to wear a seat belt. Make sure everyone stays safe in our parks. Buckle up every trip, every time.”
