Extra Seat Belt Enforcement Added for Holiday Weekend
Law enforcement personnel in the Tri-State will be stepping up enforcement of seat belt laws through the holiday weekend. The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety has funded and partnered with several law enforcement agencies, including the Kingman Police Department, in order to help save lives. Seat belt and child safety seat laws will be strictly enforced during the “Click It or Ticket” campaign, with a “zero tolerance” policy in place.

About 17,000 additional protestors from AT&T’s home phone, internet and cable divisions in Nevada and California and 2,000 in the DirecTV division voiced their concerns as well.

Company officials say there were ready with a backup plan for workers who walked off the job; however, they didn’t say what that plan was. Workers have returned to their jobs today.
