The Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce the launch of a comprehensive seat belt enforcement initiative aimed at enhancing road safety and saving lives throughout our County. The initiative underscores the commitment of the Sheriff’s Office to prioritize the well-being of Idaho’s citizens and visitors by reducing the number of preventable accidents and fatalities on our roads. Idaho has always been dedicated to providing safe and efficient transportation for its residents and travelers. By bolstering seat belt enforcement efforts, the Sherrif’s Office is taking a crucial step forward in achieving its vision of safer and more secure roadways.
Starting November 17th, there will be increased patrols dedicated to seat belt usage. This enhanced presence will help create a stronger deterrent for those not wearing their seat belts.
