While keeping an eye out for unclicked seat belts over the past two weeks, 44 summonses were written by the Southold Town Police Department for traffic infractions.
The department participated in the Buckle Up New York Click it or Ticket campaign from May 18 to May 31. The goal of the campaign, funded by a NYS Traffic Safety Grant, was to enforce and draw attention to the use of seat belts.
Of the 44 summonses, 13 were written for failing to wear seat belts. The remaining 31 were written for other miscellaneous traffic infractions.
