Byron PD wins seat belt award

Byron PD Lt. Bryan Hunter says buckling up saves lives.
BYRON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - A local police agency recently won the 2014 Buckle up America Award.

This is the third time the Byron Police Department has walked away with the distinction from the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute.

Byron police was recognized for demonstrating how to effectively prevent traffic accident injuries, by encouraging drivers to buckle up.

Lt. Bryan Hunter says his agency has cited numerous drivers with seat belt violations.

Byron police also educates the public about child seat safety and the hazards of adults not wearing
seat belts.

“The seat belt can be uncomfortable but would you rather wear a seat belt for a little while or ride in a wheelchair for the rest of your life,” says Lt. Hunter. “Perhaps even be thrown from the vehicle where you don't live at all."

Hunter also heads up the Middle Georgia Traffic Enforcement Network, which also won a Buckle Up America Award.
the network is made up of 12 counties in Middle Georgia.
