The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office will increase traffic patrols for two weeks in February to enforce seat belt and child-restraint violations, and will increase DUII traffic patrols over Super Bowl weekend.
The patrols are part of the Oregon Safety Belt Overtime Campaign, which tries to reduce deaths and injuries caused by motor vehicle crashes by focusing on seat belts, speed and impaired drivers.
The seat belt campaign will take place between Feb. 11 and Feb. 24 and will occur during daylight hours.
The DUII enforcement campaign will run from Feb. 2 to Feb. 4 during nighttime hours.
