Every Saturday during the month of March, Winnetka Police will increase enforcement efforts to educate motorists who are not wearing seatbelts.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, seatbelt use in passenger vehicles saved an estimated 13,941 lives during 2015. Buckling up helps keep drivers and passengers secure inside a vehicle, while not buckling up can result in being totally ejected from the vehicle in a crash.  Although 90.1% of Americans already use a seatbelt, nearly 27.5 million people still do not.  The Winnetka Police Department is committed to promoting seatbelt use and ensuring all commuters are buckled up every time.
