The Southeast Region of the North Dakota Highway Patrol conducted a nine-day high-emphasis seat belt enforcement blitz Jan. 13-21. Troopers worked extended or extra shifts to positively affect seat belt usage in the region.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol will join law enforcement agencies throughout the state as part of a life-saving enforcement effort. From Nov. 11 through Nov. 20, troopers will join more than 60 other law-enforcement agencies for a ‘Click It or Ticket’ mobilization. Seat belt and child restraint laws will be strictly enforced.
Law enforcement officials in Jamestown have received extra funding from the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration to conduct overtime enforcement with the “Click It or Ticket” Campaign. The public can expect to see the Jamestown Police Department out a lot more May 24 to June 6 as they will focus on ticketing those not wearing seat belts, Officer Jason Prochnow said in a news release.
Some of the biggest ideas coming before the Legislature this year get their hearings this week, starting right away this morning.
Also coming up later in the week are proposed tougher seat belt enforcement, more restrictive smoking bans, college tuition freeze and a bill that makes it a crime for a renter to install a satellite dish without permission.
