Their latest “Click It or Ticket” campaign to promote seat belt use appeared to be a success, according to Westport police.
The department issued 55 infractions for seat belt violations during the Nov. 12-Nov. 25 campaign, it said. “More importantly, an increased usage of seat belts was observed,” said Lt. Thomas P. Casimiro II in a statement.
On Nov. 5, a survey of 200 drivers on Weston Road showed 80 percent were belted, he said. On Nov. 26 at the same time and location, the number had improved to 95 percent.
“Hopefully, the motoring public is getting the message that seat belts save lives,” Casimiro said.
