More than 2,400 traffic citations were issued statewide during a recent “Click It Or Ticket” enforcement campaign.
The enforcement effort ran from November 1 through December 12.
During that time, 2,418 citations were issued by law enforcement agencies.
Nearly half were speeding tickets.
Right behind those were seat belt and child restraint violations.
The traffic stops also resulted in other citations such as disobeying traffic signals, uninsured motorists, suspended or revoked license violations, distracted driving, DUI, drug arrests and warrants served.
According to the North Dakota Department of Transportation, every 10 days an unbelted vehicle occupant dies on North Dakota roadways, based on 2018 statistics.
The department says seat belts are the single most effective safety device to prevent death and injury in a motor vehicle crash.
