Fewer Tickets Issued During Delaware Seatbelt Campaign

June 15, 2011

Delaware’s Office of Highway Safety is pleased with some numbers that suggest more Delawareans are wearing seatbelts.

The agency says that for the fourth consecutive year, police departments participating in the statewide Click It or Ticket campaign issued fewer tickets than they did the year before.

Officers wrote 1,195 seatbelt citations this year — nearly 450 fewer than a year ago and nearly half the number issued in 2008.

This year’s enforcement period ran from May 22 to June 4. Officials say it also resulted in the arrests of 30 wanted individuals. Police also issued more than 1,000 citations for speeding and other traffic violations.
