BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Transportation says law enforcement officers in the state issued 764 citations for seat belt and child restraint violations in January.

The extra traffic safety patrols were part of a Click It Or Ticket seat belt enforcement effort during the month that included more than 40 local agencies and the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Officers issued nearly 2,100 citations, with 727 for failure to use a proper safety restraint, 37 for child restraint violations and 722 for speeding.

The traffic stops also resulted in five felony violations, 18 drug arrests, four DUIs and four citations for distracted driving.

Funding for the additional traffic safety enforcement was provided by federal grant money distributed through the DOT.
