Seat Belt Enforcement: June 22 through the July 4th holiday weekend, police officers across Wisconsin are stepping up seat belt enforcement.  If you’re among the more than 90 percent of Wisconsin motorists, who regularly buckle up – keep up the great work!  If you don’t buckle up – what’s holding you back?  Consider this: the 10 percent of motorists who fail to buckle up account for nearly half the drivers and passengers killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes each year.
