BIBLE HILL - Seatbelt and car seats will be the focus of numerous checkpoints throughout the county this month.
August is seatbelt and child safety seat compliance month and RCMP Northern Traffic Services will be checking with motorists throughout both Colchester and Hants counties.
When it comes to seatbelts, officers will be enforcing proper usage, as they will be regarding child safety seats.
Child restraints are designed for children of specific sizes and using an incorrect unit puts the child at risk. It's important that children are sitting in car seats that are age and weight appropriate, and that seats are installed correctly.
