Cash for buckling up in Prince George's
Lucky residents in Prince George's County could make a buck for buckling their seat belts Wednesday.
County police say officers and safety advocates will distribute $1 bills to drivers and passengers who have their seat belts fastened on starting at noon, near the Boulevard at the Capital Center in Largo.
Police say they are partnering with the Maryland State Highway Administration's Highway Safety Office for the program and the Prince George's Community Federal Credit Union, which is supplying the cash.
People who don't have their belts secured will receive safety educational materials. Police say Prince George's leads the state in the highest number of motor vehicle deaths, and proper seat belt use is the best way for people to protect themselves.
