The CNMI Department of Public Safety will be conducting two Occupant Protection and Child Restraint checkpoints on Friday, Sept. 24, 2021.
The first checkpoint will be along Chalan Monsignor Martinez in Koblerville, to Chalan Monsignor Martinez in Dandan, from 5pm to 7pm.
The second checkpoint will be along Chalan Monsignor Guerrero in San Jose, to Chalan Monsignor Guerrero in Dandan, from 8:30pm to 10:30pm.
The purpose of these scheduled checkpoints is to promote public safety while increasing the awareness of the dangers of not utilizing a vehicle’s occupant protection system, as well as child restraints systems while driving on the island’s roads. Locations of these checkpoints were pre-determined based on the number of auto accidents, occupant protection, and child restraint system violations in these areas. (PR)
