LENEXA, Kan. — The Lenexa Police Department will step up enforcement of state seatbelt laws in the week leading up to Halloween near elementary and middle schools.

From Oct. 24-28, the department will increase enforcement as part of the Ticket or Treat campaign to enforce and educate drivers on the best practices for safety restraints.

According to a Kansas seatbelt survey from 2019, children are much more likely to have their seatbelts on when the driver is buckled in.

The department will issue citations to vehicles that are stopped and the driver’s or occupants who are not wearing seatbelts.
