Maine Police Taking Part in Seat Belt Campaign 

Police want more people to wear seat belts. Maine State Police and 83 other Maine law enforcement agencies are taking part in the annual ” Buckle Up, No Excuses” campaign. The two week crackdown started Monday, May 20th and runs through Sunday, June 2nd.” In my career I’ve seen crashes where lives could have been saves or serious injuries could have been prevented if someone had been wearing their seat belt,” said Trooper Michael Johnston with the Maine State Police. If you’re caught without your seat belt, it’s $70 the first time, $160 the second, and $310 for the third violation.
