Westport police had a quiet holiday weekend on the roads.
Over the holiday weekend, there were 10 accidents on Westport roads, said Police Sgt. Jerry Shannon, public information officer.
The number of accidents is below the average for a non-holiday weekend, he said.
Police also made 87 motor vehicle arrests and did not arrest anyone for driving under the influence, he said.
Over the weekend, Shannon said, police issued 36 seat belt tickets as part of the Click It or Ticket program.
It brings the total for the most recent campaign to 118, he said.
Police had a town-wide crackdown on seat belt violations on Saturday afternoon, he said, but the breakdown for that time was not available.
