New London – Police issued 99 seat-belt citations and one child restraint citation during a two-week Click it or Ticket campaign specifically targeting such violations.

The 14-day mobilization ended Sunday, Deputy Chief Peter Reichard said Monday in a news release.

“A majority of people have gotten the message, but many have not,” Reichard said. “Tragic crashes can and do happen every day. Our job is to save lives, and we want everyone to have the best chance of surviving a fatal crash by always buckling up.”
