Seat belt campaign results
A statewide law enforcement campaign to crack down on motorists who don't wear seat belts generated an additional 3,389 citations in about a month's span.
The "Click It or Ticket" campaign ran from July 1 through Aug. 11. The goal was to promote safety, according to North Dakota's Transportation Department.
Officers handed out additional citations for a variety of traffic offenses. Most were for failing to wear a seat belt and for speeding. Six were for driving under the influence.
