St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office conduct seat belt checks

Posted: April 27th, 2017 | Filed under: News Releases

Sgt. Jorge Vargas issues a citation to a motorist for not wearing their seat belt April 26, near the corner of Center Street and St. Bernard Highway in Arabi.

St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office deputies have been on extra patrols throughout the parish in conjunction with the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission’s 2017 “Buckle Up In Your Truck” initiative, which began April 21 and wraps up today, April 27.

“One of the safest choices drivers or passengers can make is to buckle up their seat belts,” Sheriff James Pohlmann said. “Otherwise, you’re risking serious injury or death. You may not see an accident coming, and, in just that moment, your life can be over because you didn’t do something as simple as buckle your seat belt.’’
