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.

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.
But if you saw familiar faces pulled over, don’t be quick to assume they were in violation of the law, drivers who were not ready with their license or registration were asked to pull to the side to keep traffic flowing.
The Click it or Ticket program ran through the month of May to
