63 citations issued in seat belt campaign

The Evanston Police Department’s traffic bureau launched its “click it or ticket” seatbelt enforcement campaign last weekend and issued 63 citations for a variety of violations.

On May 14, traffic officers conducted enforcement actions at several locations. The operations resulted in 36 seatbelt citations, 21 driver cell phone violations, one child safety seat restraint violation, four insurance violations and one violation for no driver license.

With the approaching Memorial Day holiday weekend — and additional enforcement efforts — police encourage drivers to buckle their seatbelts, use a hands free communication device when driving and always arrange for designated driver.
