OPP offer ‘Today’s Tip – Pregnancy and seatbelts!”

The annual Provincial Seatbelt Campaign runs from March 30 to April 2, 2018. OPP are offering the following tips:

If you’re pregnant, you still need to wear a seatbelt. You should:

  •  Wear both the lap and shoulder belt,
  • Sit as upright as possible, and
  • Wear the lap belt low so it pulls downward on your pelvic bones and not across your stomach.

A driver can be charged and face a fine totalling $240 and two demerit points for seatbelt infractions.
