$60k grant to tighten seat belt enforcement

The Chandler Police Department’s traffic unit has received a $60,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to encourage seatbelt use and step up existing measures to minimize accidents.
The allocation, which runs through September, funds additional enforcement of moving violations— including speeding, red light running and failing to yield properly on a left turn—that police say contribute to serious injury and fatal collisions.
Officers participating in the grant focus solely on traffic enforcement and are specially trained in collision investigations. The enforcement measures will occur at various locations throughout the city, according to Det. Seth Tyler.
