Sgt. James Carney says police issued 16 citations to adults for seat belt violations, and five citations to drivers and passengers who were under 18. The also issued eight miscellaneous citations.
Carney said the state usually tries to organize another seat belt enforcement push around Memorial Day every year. The efforts are designed to raise awareness of the need for teens to use seat belts. Statistics show that in 2010, 51 Kansas teens died in car crashes, and 75 percent of those killed were not wearing seat belts.
