Cop's Corner with Captain Cupp

Captain David G. Cupp

Captain Cupp is the daytime shift commander for the Bartlett Police Department. Each week Captain Cupp will provide citizens of Bartlett with information useful to Bartlett residents concerning traffic and public safety and little known facts about the Bartlett Police Department.

This week's topic:
Passenger Seat Belts
There has been a lot of publicity in the use of seat belts and the importance of using them. I have been seeing many citations being issued because of the “passenger” is not wearing their seatbelts. The Adult Driver of a vehicle is responsible to see that all passengers are wearing seatbelts properly. If the passenger is under the age of 16 the Adult Driver can be cited for those not wearing seatbelts. If the passenger is another adult the driver will be stopped and the passenger will be cited. The driver of a vehicle has a lot of responsibilities; this is just one of them.
