Oregon City Police Participating in Oregon's Safety Belt Blitz - 01/28/19

The Oregon City Police Department will be participating in the first statewide Safety Belt Blitz of 2019.  Officers will be working overtime enforcement shifts to focus on proper safety belt use, proper child safety seat use, texting, and speed.  Beginning Monday, February 4th and extending through Sunday, February 17th, law enforcement agencies throughout Oregon will use federally funded overtime to educate the public about safety belt and child seat laws including the 2017 passed law increasing safety for children under the age of two.

The following information is provided by O.D.O.T. and the US Department of Transportation:

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading nationwide cause of death for children ages one through twelve years old. In 2016, 1,992 children under twelve were injured in Oregon traffic crashes, 10% were reported not using a child restraint system.  It is estimated that car seats may increase crash survival by 71% for infants under one year old and by up to 59% for toddlers aged one to four. Booster seats may reduce the chance of nonfatal injury among four to eight year olds by 45% compared to safety belts used alone.

ODOT crash data for 2016 shows a lack of safety belt or child restraint use was a factor in 26% or 89 of a total 343 motor vehicle occupant fatalities.  Safety belts used correctly can reduce the risk of major crash injury or death by up to 65%.

In 2017, an Oregon law was passed requiring children to ride in a rear-facing safety seat until they are at least two years old.  A child over age two must continue to ride in a car seat with harness or in a booster until they reach age eight or 4' 9" in height and the adult belt fits them correctly.
