Local law enforcement joined the South Carolina Highway Patrol yesterday in kicking off the Buckle Up South Carolina event. Officers across the state want to remind everyone about the importance of using seatbelts and child safety seats.
South Carolina has a primary safety belt enforcement law. Under the primary law, a law enforcement officer has the authority to stop a driver if the officer has a clear and unobstructed view of a driver or occupant of a motor vehicle not wearing a safety belt or not secured in a child restraint system.
