The Oak Forest Police Department will be conducting a seat belt enforcement campaign over the Labor Day holiday weekend as part of the national Click It or Ticket program, according to a city press release.
The campaign will begin Tuesday, Aug. 27, and run through Monday, Sept. 2, with police running saturation patrols in specific areas. This will be the last crackdown by the department for this fiscal year, and it is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the release stated.
