MOBRIDGE, S.D. – (DRG News) Several motorists that went through a seatbelt safety check in Mobridge last week were found to have been belted in. Walworth County Sheriff Duane Mohr says the check was held last Wednesday near Mobridge/Pollock High School. He says 76 vehicles came through the morning check carrying 127 occupants. Of that number, Mohr says 119 were wearing seatbelts and eight were not. Mohr says his office worked with the Mobridge Police Department to organize the event and they were pleased with the numbers of motorists who were wearing their safety belts. Those that had their seatbelts on were given Tootsie Rolls and those that did not received a pamphlet that explained seatbelt laws. The seatbelt safety check was set up as part of a requirement of a highway safety grant that was received by the Mobridge agencies in the past year. A similar event was conducted last fall, as well.
