Police to target unbuckled children

        During Thanksgiving week, Nov. 22-28, the Cincinnati Police Division will intensify its efforts to make sure motorists have children properly buckled up.

        Officers will participate in Operation ABC Mobilization: America Buckles Up Children. The goal of the national campaign is to raise seat belt use to 85 percent by 2000 and 90 percent by 2005, and to reduce child crash fatalities 15 percent by 2000 and 25 percent by 2005.

        Officers will issue citations for any safety restraint violation in an effort to encourage drivers to insure the safety of children. The fine is $76 for the first offense, and $136 for the second offense.

        Nationally, half the children killed in vehicle crashes were not in a safety restraint.

        The police division's traffic unit will have extra patrol during Thanksgiving week for strict enforcement against seat belts and DUI violations.
