LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state is launching a new campaign called “Michigan Summer of Safety” to support increased federally funded seat belt and impaired driving enforcement.

The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning says Thursday that police departments, sheriff’s offices and the Michigan State Police are involved in the effort, which runs through Labor Day.

The campaign also seeks to raise awareness of motorcycle, pedestrian, bike and child passenger safety throughout the summer. The goal is to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries on Michigan roads by increasing seat belt use and safe summer travel.

Traffic safety organizations will display campaign materials and distribute safety information in their communities. The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning and other state agencies will post tips on social media using the #misummerofsafety hashtag.
