Bowling Green Officer has Eye for Seat Belts

Just minutes into his shift Friday afternoon, Bowling Green Police Department Officer Ben Carroll has stopped a car because the driver isn’t wearing a seat belt. From July 1, 2010, to June 15, Carroll wrote 229 citations to drivers who were not wearing seat belts. The second highest number of seat belt citations issued by a BGPD officer was 27 for the same time period.
