From Maryland State Police:
The Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack wants to remind everyone that buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a motor vehicle collision. Troopers will continue to be out in force for the remainder of May and during the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend, searching for traffic violators, especially those who choose not to wear seatbelts and those who elect to drive while under the influence.
Don’t become a statistic. Be aware that already this month troopers have stopped over 800 vehicles for traffic offenses such as speeding, distracted driving, and occupant protection violations. Remarkably, out of these traffic stops there were 266 seatbelt citations and 4 child restraint citations issued. So far this month troopers have made 11 DUI arrests and 10 narcotics arrests.
The Maryland Law Enforcement Challenge Program has designated the month of May for the “Click it or Ticket” operation, and troopers from the Maryland State Police, Bel Air Barrack, will be targeting occupant protection violations. Additional operations will continue throughout the year, to include “High Visibility DUI Saturation Patrols” at the end of this month. Results of these operations, to include the identities of arrestees, will be posted.
Allied agencies will be participating in these operations.
