High schools holding seatbelt contest
Students at Monte Vista, San Ramon Valley and California high schools are participating in the California Highway Patrol's Impact Seat Belt safety campaign this year. It includes a competition among the three schools for the highest seatbelt compliance rate.
The goal of the CHP campaign is to close the gap between the state's overall seatbelt use rate of 93.4 percent and the teen seatbelt use rate of 90.8 percent. CHP officers are monitoring seatbelt use of vehicles entering the Monte Vista, San Ramon and Cal High campuses over a four-week period starting in late February. Meanwhile important information regarding seatbelt awareness is being announced regularly, along with activities on the campuses, and students are being encouraged to be safe while driving.
Parents are included in the final seatbelt compliance tally, so they can show support by buckling up when they drive and reminding their kids to do the same.
