Marshall County - Sheriff Ted Kamatchus announces today that the Marshall County Sheriff's Office conducted one of two yearly seatbelt surveys
The survey is used to determine the seat belt usage of motorist traveling on major highways through Marshall County. The results of the survey were as follows: 94% of all motorists on Highway 14 used seat belts, 95% of all motorists on Highway 30 used seat belts, and 96% of all motorists on Highway 330 used seat belts giving Marshall County a Highway average of 95%. The seatbelt percentage rate was for the driver and front passenger. Passengers in the rear seats are not included in the survey. The goal of the Marshall County Sheriff's Office is to see 100% of all the motorists on the highway using seat belts, but we need your help to reach this goal. The next time you go somewhere, take the time to buckle your seat belt. Your life is worth the time.
