More Than 1,000 Cited In DE Seatbelt Crackdown

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware officials say officers issued 1,010 citations during the annual "Click It or Ticket" campaign last month.
    
The Office of Highway Safety says the two-week seatbelt enforcement campaign involved traffic safety checkpoints and saturation patrols both day and night across the state. Approximately 30 state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies participated in the campaign to enforce state law, which requires all occupants in a vehicle be buckled up.
    
Officials say for the sixth year in a row, fewer citations were issued than the year before. In 2008, officers issued a total of 2,347 citations in the two-week period.
    
In addition to seatbelt enforcement, officers also issued 297 speeding citations and 878 citations for other traffic violations.
