Delaware seat belt crackdown leads to 800 citations
DOVER, Del. (AP) -- If you got a ticket over the last four months traveling to the beach in Delaware, you may have been caught in a statewide effort to boost seat belt use.
Delaware police departments issued more than 800 citations for seat belt violations during the campaign.
Delaware Office of Highway Safety spokeswoman Andrea Summers says the campaign began after surveys showed that the rate of seat belt use in the state declined from 91 percent in 2008 to 88 percent this year.
Summers says officers also cited 47 drivers for child restraint violations, 363 for speeding, and cited another 853 for other traffic violations.
