Police in Smiths Falls are on the lookout for seatbelt infractions this month.
April is Seatbelt Month and officers will be enforcing all rules associated with them.
A driver can be charged and face a fine of between $200 and $1,000 for not wearing a seatbelt; they also receive demerit points upon conviction.
Drivers are responsible for ensuring everyone under 16 in their car is properly buckled up; passengers 16 and over can also be fined for not wearing a seatbelt.
More than 600,000 Ontarians still do not regularly wear a seatbelt and police say for every one per cent increase in seatbelt use, five lives are saved.
