Buckle up and be safe, police caution

In case you haven’t noticed, Barrie police are watching more closely this week to see if drivers and passengers are buckled up properly.
And, in conjunction with the ‘Seat Belt Safety Initiative,’ local police have teamed up with the Simcoe Health Unit and local businesses to offer a Child Seat Clinic, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Beverly Tire, 34 Anne Street South.
Children under eight years old, or lighter than 36 kgs (80 pounds), or less than 145 cm (four foot) in height, are required to occupy a car seat within a vehicle. Infants weighing less than nine kg (20 pounds) must be in a rear-facing infant car seat.
For passengers under the age of 16, it is the driver’s legal responsibility to ensure they are wearing a seat belt.
