During a five-day Federal Highway Safety Program DUI Enforcement
Campaign over the 4th of July, Waterford Police made three DUI arrests and wrote 50 citations for various traffic-related offenses.
Police cited speed as the main reason for citation.
"Most violations were speed related but numerous cell phone, distracted
driving, seatbelt, and following too closely citations were also issued," police wrote on the Waterford Police Department Facebook page.
"The Waterford Police Department urges all motorists to
continue to voluntarily participate in safe, responsible motor vehicle
operation, and 100 percent compliance with Connecticut Seatbelt and DUI safety
laws," police noted. "Waterford Police Department will continue to target DUI and seatbelt compliance through the upcoming summer months and beyond. Not
wearing your seatbelt might cost you a ticket, or worse — your life.
Remember — don't drink and drive — and click it or ticket!"
