STAMFORD, Conn. — For a week, the Stamford police took part in the Click It or Ticket campaign to promote seat belt usage.
Officers increased enforcement and set up short daily checkpoints of vehicles.
On the last day of the campaign, Monday, Nov. 27, Stamford officers had a checkpoint in the morning at East Main Street and Courtland Avenue. There, they handed out 14 failure to wear seatbelt tickets, four distracted driving (cellphone) tickets, two operating under suspension tickets and one operating without a driver's license ticket.
In the afternoon, officers set up at Atlantic Street and Tresser Boulevard, where they handed out 19 failure to wear seatbelt tickets, two distracted driving tickets and one unregistered motor vehicle ticket.
"Please buckle up and drive safely, especially this holiday season," Stamford police said in a Facebook post. "If you choose to drink please don't drive, utilize a designated driver, walk, take a taxi or one of the many other ride options such as Uber."
