Bucks for buckles coming
Drivers in Hillsboro and Marion who have their kids buckled up could get a reward. A statewide “Bucks for Buckles” program, sponsored by Safe Kids Kansas, State Farm Insurance, and Kansas Department of Transportation will be checking whether parents have their kids buckled up and rewarding them with dollar bills.
Drivers whose kids are not buckled up will receive educational materials about the effectiveness of seat belts and child safety seats in saving lives and reducing injuries.
The program will operate in 46 cities between Aug. 28 and Sept. 12. Which day or days the program will come to Hillsboro and Marion has not been decided.
