Merriam police officers wrote more than 60 tickets for seatbelt violations during the two-week Click It or Ticket campaign, which ended yesterday.
Funded by a Kansas Department of Transportation grant, two Merriam officers worked the Click It or Ticket campaign. They issued a total of 91 tickets during the last two weeks, of which 63 were for people not wearing seatbelts.
To help reduce the number of preventable deaths, officers enforced both the Kansas Safety Belt Use Act and the Kansas Child Passenger Safety Act.
