ASU students get "sweet" reminder about seat belts

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State University Police and a sorority used candy to get students to think about seat belt safety and not texting while driving.

Sigma Gamma Rho members and campus officers greeted drivers at the university's Radium Springs Road entrance.

Drivers who were buckled up got a lifesaver.

Those not wearing seat belts were given a "dum dum sucker." 

Sigma Gamma Rho member Jasmine Arbery said "They try to put on their seat belt at the last minute. They try to ease it on, like we don't see it. It's cute."

Albany State Police Lt. Anita Allen said "It's very important to pay attention to the road. They don't need to text and drive. It only takes a couple of seconds to miss it and have an accident."

University police also handed out flyers urging students not to text and drive.
