UHP Seatbelt Convincer Reinforces Importance Of Buckling Up During Awareness Fair
A local youth learns about the importance of buckling up from a Utah Highway Patrolman during the Carbon County Community Awareness Fair last Thursday. The seatbelt convincer provided fair participants with a firsthand experience of force created by a slow-speed impact. Attendees were buckled into the convincer, which collided into a barrier at a rate of seven miles an hour and created a significant jolt. The law enforcement officials utilized the tool to encourage Carbon County residents of all ages to use seatbelts and child safety restraints.
