RILEY COUNTY, Kan.-- Beginning March 5, the Riley County Police Department will join other Kansas Law Enforcement agencies in addressing the problem of teen deaths in traffic accidents. In 2010, 51 teens lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas, and 75 percent of those killed were not wearing seat belts.

In an effort to reverse this trend, law enforcement officers across Kansas will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. In particular, the Riley County Police Department will focus its attention in the area of the Riley County High School both before and after school. Officers will be watching closely for seat belt violations, but they will also stop and cite for all observed traffic infractions.
