seat belt

In the past few months, the Manchester VA Medical Center met with scandal, disaster, and a full helping of public outcry. Today on Word of Mouth, NHPR's Peter Biello looks back on the summer's news and tells the story of one woman's effort to improve hospital facilities for survivors of military sexual trauma. 

 

Some police departments such as Manchester are taking part in the "Join the New Hampshire Clique Seatbelt Campaign" this month to promote safety among teen drivers and young passengers.

Officers are working patrols that focus on occupants of motor vehicles not in compliance with state seatbelt law. The law requires drivers and passengers under the age of 18 to be properly restrained with a seat or safety belt.
