During the week of November 19, 2018, through November 25, 2018,Texarkana Arkansas Police Department will be working the State Seatbelt Mobilization initiative.

Be advised as you head out on the road this long holiday weekend, extra officers will be out looking for occupant restraint violations. Arkansas State Law requires that all front seat passengers and any passenger under 15 years of age be buckled up. Children who are less than 6 years of age and weighing less than 60lbs shall be restrained in a child safety seat. It only takes a second to buckle up.

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday and asks that you take the time to fasten your seatbelt. Please be safe traveling wherever it may be.

For more information about traveling safely during the Thanksgiving holiday, please visit trafficsafetymarketing.gov or you can visit the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department online at txkusa.org/arkpolice.
