IDOT: Seat Belt Details Not A Money Grab


Among the many heightened police patrols over the long Thanksgiving travel weekend will be “seat belt enforcement zones” around the state. 

 

One was held Tuesday in Springfield, and around 200 more are planned statewide through the end of the month. 

 

Jennifer Toney with the Illinois Department of Transportation says the details are not a money-maker… in fact, she says the government spends more to hire back officers for the patrols than it collects in fines.  But she says they are proven to increase compliance with seat belt laws… and, therefore, they save lives.
