Montgomery County Police Launch Click It or Ticket Campaign
MoCo police ticketed 197 motorists with seat belt violations.
The Montgomery County Police kicked off its "Click It or Ticket" seat belt campaign Wednesday morning with 35 officers spending two hours on Route 355 issuing citations to motorists for failing to wear them.
The two-hour enforcement period yielded 197 seat belt violation citations, three citations for other traffic violations and four warnings, according to a Montgomery County Police news release.
The two-hour detail was funded by the Maryland Highway Safety Office.
Under Montgomery County law, anyone under 16 years old riding in the back of the car must be using a seat belt and anyone over 16 in the front seat of a car, as an operator or passenger, must buckle up.
