TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Kansas Highway Patrol will be targeting high schoolers who aren't wearing their seat belts.

Beginning Monday, KHP will host a two-week-long awareness campaign in hopes of decreasing the number of teens killed in motor vehicle accidents by increasing the use of seat belts.

Last year, 43 teens lost their lives in vehicle crashes in Kansas. Of those, 74 percent were not properly restrained.

Troopers and other officers will work near local high schools enforcing the seat belt law. Anyone who is not properly restrained could be issued a citation.
