Conway Police plan seatbelt enforcement initiative

Conway, SC - CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Conway Police are reminding drivers that not only is wearing a seatbelt a law, it offers life-saving benefits.

According to CPD spokeswoman Catina Hipp, police are focusing on seatbelt enforcement and on educating the public during the Memorial Day weekend.

Hipp said in a press release Wednesday that at least one person dies in the U.S. every hour because he or she did not buckle up.

"The message is simple," she said. "BUCKLE UP, CONWAY."
