1,074 citations issued during Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign

For Immediate Release: Jun 22 2023
STATEWIDE, N.D. – Law enforcement agencies across the state participated in the Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign from May 22 to June 4, 2023 to help save lives on North Dakota roads.

A total of 1,074 citations were attributed to the overtime enforcement patrols. Of the total citations, 439 were citations for failure to wear a seat belt and 23 were child restraint citations. Tickets for speeding totaled 363. The traffic stops also resulted in 110 other traffic citations (i.e. disobeying traffic signals, equipment violations), 39 uninsured motorists, 30 suspended/revoked license violations, two drug arrests, six citations for distracted driving, eight warrants served, and three driving under the influence (DUI) citations.

Preliminary data for 2022 shows that 69% of motor vehicle fatalities in North Dakota were not wearing their seat belt. Seat belts are the single most effective safety device to prevent death and injury in a motor vehicle crash.
High-visibility enforcement for traffic safety is one element of a collaborative effort to help meet the state’s goal of zero motor vehicle fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
