Traffic enforcement project results
The Click It or Ticket traffic enforcement operation held in Carlisle July 23 – 30 yielded a total of 34 motor vehicle stops. These generated a total of 20 citations, only one of which was for a seat-belt violation. There were 13 citations for speeding and one summons for revoked registration/uninsured vehicle.
Traffic enforcement operations are made possible by a state grant of funds for 20 hours of patrol duty dedicated solely to traffic enforcement, with special attention to safety belt usage, in this case. Local police departments can maintain regular budgeted coverage and through the state funds purchase extra patrol hours dedicated to traffic enforcement. ∆
