More Than 7,200 Tickets Issued During Seat Belt Campaign
ST. PAUL (AP) - State officials say more than 7,200 tickets were issued to motorists during a special campaign on seat belt use.
The "Click It or Ticket" campaign ran from May 23 to June 5. The Department of Public Safety says 7,233 citations were given to drivers who didn't buckle up and 213 tickets were issued to motorists who failed to put children in the proper restraints.
Safety officials say one woman who was cited had her 4-year-old son on her lap helping her steer the car. More than 300 law enforcement agencies participated in the annual campaign.
