Waterford Police Crack Down on Seat Belt Violators

The department added extra officers in the beginning of December as part of a “Click It or Ticket” campaign.

The Waterford Police Department announced it issued 29 tickets and another seven written warnings to motorist from December 3rd to the 16th, a period where they had extra police officers on the road looking for traffic violators.

The department had five additional six-hour patrols during that time as part of a “Click It or Ticket” campaign. In that period, Waterford Police officers wrote 13 citations to drivers not wearing a seat belt, eight to people using a cell phone while driving and six for speeding and other motor vehicle violations. Additionally, two drivers were arrested for driving with a suspended license.

Throughout the rest of the month, the department will be increasing its patrols, specifically looking again for drivers without seatbelts and people driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In a press release, the department said the extra patrols are to promote safe driving practices and to increase the safety for all motorists.

Happy Holidays from the Waterford Police Department!!! They are out spreading holiday cheer. Make sure you pay your ticket and like Santa says, "No talking on your cell phone or drinking egg nog while steering your sleigh."

I am actually glad to hear it, just this afternoon some knucklehead in an SUV crossed into my lane on forcing me into someones yard. Big surprise, they were on their cell phone.
