CORNELIA – Sgt. Anthony Coleman of Georgia State Patrol Post 7 in Toccoa has released numbers for an enforcement campaign held Friday night, April 26, in Habersham County.

“We held a nighttime/late evening seatbelt enforcement,” Coleman said.

Post 7 Troopers issued the following charges for seatbelt violations: 26 citations for adult seatbelt violations (a number which includes anyone over 8 years of age), and four citations for child restraint violations.

“During the event we also issued other citations for various violations, to include: driving while license suspended, driving under the influence of drugs, and a misdemeanor drug arrest,” Coleman said.

Similarly, on Friday, April 12, Troopers from Georgia State Patrol Post 6 in Gainesville conducted a nighttime seatbelt check from 8:30-10:30 on the square in Cleveland.

That safety effort was followed by a DUI checkpoint.

During the White County enforcement campaigns, troopers made 43 seatbelt arrests, six other arrests, one driving under the influence arrest, one felony drug arrest, one misdemeanor drug arrest, one arrest for suspended license, and 54 traffic stops, GSP officials report.
