'Buckle Up in Your Truck’ Campaign

Law enforcement agencies in Washington, Tangipahoa, and St. Tammany parishes are participating in the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission’s “Buckle Up in Your Truck” campaign this month. 

As part of this statewide campaign, which runs April 17-24, the agencies will conduct extra seat belt enforcement and checkpoints.

Pickup trucks are twice as likely to roll over in a crash, and Louisiana pickup truck drivers and passengers are less likely to wear their seat belts, creating “a safety double whammy” that the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission is addressing through a seat belt enforcement campaign.

The fine for not wearing a seat belt in Louisiana is $50, and subsequent offenses carry a $75 fine plus court costs.
