There have been at least 5 deaths that I recall in the last 9 months due to our kids not wearing seatbelts. Front seat or back seat we need to drill it in their heads to wear them. I challenge KPD to do more seat belt checks and ticket them. There are 5 heartbroken mothers out there who would have gladly paid a ticket over a funeral. Parents can do their part too. Dont drive without all passengers belted. Set the example and hope they follow.

I would challenge yourself as a parent to teach your children to always wear a seatbelt and other responsibilities.

Oh, I do. But I can't be with them when they walk out that door. An extra set of eyes would be great!

I just read the Star Courier story about a girl outside of Galva being ejected from her car and died. I was going to start a "Who actually wears a seatbelt?" topic. Sorry if I seem like I'm stealing your idea, but it would be an interesting topic....until someone starts posting stupid sh*t.

My cousin was in a severe car accident, she's very lucky to be alive today. After that I've always wore a seatbelt and encourage my children. I make them think its cool because i wear one lol. Their only 2 & 4 so i make it fun for them. I wish more people, especially young ones would wear they seat belt.

I just got a seatbelt ticket not too long ago, and I'm 16, so yes, they are on the lookout. But..it was a state cop, not a kewanee cop.

What does the Kewanee Park District have to do with kids not wearing their seatbelts?

Not Kewanee Park District, but Kewanee Police Department.. you must not be a kewanee resident, everyone refers to the police as KPD.

Just wondering, is one of the cops car not running, why on earth would 2 cops ride together. This is our tax payers money. If you don't need them get rid of them. I want my town patrolled.
