Preliminary reports indicate that stops during the campaign resulted in more than 7,700 seat belt and child restraint citations.
Officials say that they want to help get seat belt use up to the 98 percent level.
State police say an annual enforcement crackdown on motorists who fail to use seat belts and child safety seats led to 8,050 citations — down about 1,000 from 2011.
If you’re not buckled up Monday morning – the chances are, you WILL get a ticket. The annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign kicks off today with extra patrols from over 200 different police departments across Michigan looking for drivers who aren’t buckled up.
