How about all those tickets at the Beach?


Click it or Ticket and C.A.R.E.

Have you been hearing those commercials from the Division of Motor Vehicle where the teenager said his friend ruined his concert experience because he didn’t buckle up and wound up paying a ticket for not having his seat belt buckled? Have you seen the signs posted on the roads and front fenders of police cruisers saying, “Click it or Ticket”? Did you believe it could happen to you?
Well if you have been stopped for any other violation and didn’t have your seat belt buckled, chances are you got a ticket.

730 cars went through last week's Safety stop on Wednesday in Colonial beach and resulted in 43 violations of various kinds and 31 violations of no Town sticker, according to Colonial Beach officer Wells.
An officer was posted at the top of the hill just before the curve to alert drivers to the traffic stop. Cars with violations where directed to pull to the side to await their tickets.

The Click it or Ticket program ran through the month of May to
