PELHAM — Buckle up, New Hampshire.

Police in Pelham and Dracut, Mass., will be out to enforce state seatbelt laws today in a combined operation coinciding with a national campaign.

Dubbed “Border-to-Border,” police are warning drivers on both sides of the Massachusetts-New Hampshire state line to be buckled up today because officers will be out enforcing the seat belt laws.

In Pelham, officers will conduct both stationary enforcement and moving patrols while on the lookout for drivers and passengers under the age of 18 who aren’t wearing seatbelts.

“The cross-border agencies are working together towards achieving the same goals because this is not just a New Hampshire concern, this is a national concern,” Pelham police said in a news release. “Our collaborative goal is to educate people about the importance of wearing seatbelts and to impress upon drivers that seatbelts can save lives.”
