[ARCHIVED] Newton Police Department Completes August Seatbelt Survey


The Newton Police Department conducted a seatbelt usage survey on August 26, 2021, that showed strong results by motorists in the community. 

During the survey, Newton police observed 97 percent of drivers properly wearing their seatbelts, a 2 percent increase from the March 2021 seat belt survey. Newton police also observed 100 percent of front-seat passengers wearing their seatbelts during this year’s survey. 

“The Newton Police Department would like to remind motorists to buckle up, slow down and obey all traffic laws,” Newton Police Chief Rob Burdess said. 

Primary funding for the project was provided by the Iowa Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau.
