Local law enforcement met to show that all agencies are working together to reinforce using your seatbelt.

It's part of their ‘Summer Heat’ initiative to educate people on the lifesaving benefits of wearing a seatbelt.

They'll also be cracking down on people who choose not to wear one or not to use child restraints.

Sgt. Cordell says, "Lives are still being lost on Louisiana highways simply for those that are not buckling up. Seatbelts actually saves lives."

Louisiana law requires everyone in a vehicle to wear a seatbelt at all times on Louisiana roadways.
