This year, students from various schools in Mahoning County showed their artistic talents by making posters regarding seat-belt use. Dobbins Elementary and Holy Family schools were among participating schools. Poland Giant Eagle and Save-A-Lot have displays showcasing the posters from both schools.

click it or ticket, and people on moter cycles being killed. why is it a law that a driver or a passanger of a car,truck,van,or a suv has to wear a seat belt but those on a lets say 500lb bike doesnt have to wear a helment. oh thats right cuz there is more people that own cars,ect over motercycles so they,ll make more money on the seatbelts.

this is a holiday weekend. everyone needs to put their seatbealts on. a seatbelt ticket can cost quite a bit. so buckle up and be safe. as for motor cycle riders, its ok for you guys to get on your bikes and speed around town and not wear a helmet. its ok to kill yourselves on a bike. but dont get caught without a seatbelt. can anyone say russia. we are the united states the land of the free and home of the brave. but yey where has all of our rights gone to. every day we are told by our goverment how we have to live. it is sick.

Why is click it or ticket only through May 31? Why isn't there zero tolerance all of the time. Also why are DUI check points announced ahead of time?

cosmo, you must enjoy being told that you have to wear a seatbelt. well some of us dont. some of us feel like its against our rights. i feel that if you dont want to wear it you shouldnt have to. did you also know that seatbelts can do more harm than good from time to time, depending on the accident. that there is something that the dept.of transportation dont want you to know. i had a friend in a bad accident and even the rescue workers told him that if he had his seatbelt on he would of been dead. like i said before, lets make you wear a seat belt everyday when you are in a 2,500lb car but you can go home get on your bike and not wear a helmet. which to you seems more deadly. the law was passed because they knew the,d get more more money. there,s more people who own cars trucks,ect than motercycles. if we should have to wear a seatbelt then bikers should have to wear a helmet.

I agree with all of you buy no one mentioned school buses! I, an adult, have to put my seatbelt on everytime I get in my car, but I can watch my children get on a bus 5 days a week, with a bus driver that forgets to drop them off or stop at all cause she is going so fast, and they don't have seat belts!! How is that even right???? I know I know, it could be a safety hazard if god forbid something happened... but like someone above mentioned... wearing your seat belt in a car can be deadly too!
