More officers will be on the road looking for drivers not wearing their seat belts.

The Kansas Department of Transportation made the announcement in Shawnee.

20-year-old Shelby Feugate spoke at the event. Two years ago she was in a crash. Feugate was not wearing a seat belt and she says that cost her the use of her legs.

“I didn’t think it was going to happen to me, I used to sit through assemblies in high school thinking like you know this is important and you know this is sad but I don’t have to worry about that because that’s not going to happen to me.”

K-DOT says Kansans fall below the national average in seat belt use.

They say the sunflower state ranks 39th among the 50 states.
