Minnesota law requires drivers and all seated passengers to wear seat belts, but law enforcement found more than 1,100 motorists breaking that rule during a recent Click It or Ticket campaign.
Police statewide handed out a total of 1,164 tickets during the Sept. 18-24 education and enforcement campaign to encourage drivers to buckle up, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) said.
Another 27 motorists were cited for not having children properly restrained in a car seat, including a parent in Lonsdale who was driving with a toddler on their lap.
