The first seat belt enforcement campaign of the year resulted in 271 motorists not wearing a seat belt at night. Police from 6 departments plus the state police worked over 421 hours of overtime enforcement looking for unbelted motorists. There were other infractions that resulted in citations – including 1 for DUI, 73 cell phone citations and 96 people ticketed for speeding. The next wave of seat belt enforcement will be included in the Click it or Ticket campaign in May.
