Teenagers ‘buckle up’ in the Capitol

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Department of Transportation says teenagers will be coming to the Statehouse to participate in a quick-click buckling-up challenge as part of a traffic safety event.

Friday afternoon’s event on the south side of the Capitol is part of KDOT’s Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day.

The challenge involves teams of teenagers racing to unbuckle their seatbelts in cars, trade places and buckle up again.

Deputy KDOT Secretary Jerry Younger plans to serve as master of ceremonies.

The event emphasizes the importance of traffic safety.
