Beaver Twp. patrols
NORTH LIMA -- Starting May 25, and continuing through June 4, more Beaver Township Police officers will be patrolling area roads and highways for violators of Ohio's child passenger and safety belt laws.
"The goal of our heightened enforcement efforts is to increase safety belt usage and to save lives," said Chief Carl N. Frost. "Last year, more than half of all Ohioans who died on our roadways in motor vehicle crashes were unbuckled. While a safety belt may not have prevented all of these deaths, experts predict it would save many."
