Partnering with several local organizations, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will be involved in this year’s Battle of the Belts at Seminole High School. The Battle of the Belts program was initiated in an effort to increase safety belt use amongst teenagers and decrease the number of students who drive distracted or impaired.

Promoting driver safety is a priority of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Seminole Fire Rescue. First responders, students from the Seminole High School CEL club, and SADD chapter will stage a mock motor vehicle crash on the school’s football field to stress the importance of wearing a seatbelt and not driving distracted or impaired. The educational experience is known as Battle of the Belts and will provide young drivers a visual outlook on the need to wear a seatbelt and not drive while distracted or impaired.
This event is a part of a student awareness campaign that was held the week of March 11-15th.
If you have any questions regarding the event, contact Deputy Steve Tacia of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Unit at 727-582-6200.
