DENVER (AP) - State transportation officials say nearly 1,600 citations were issued during Colorado’s “click it or ticket” campaign.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1T5l6YH ) that March 28-April 2 campaign included the 14 posts of the Colorado State Patrol and 33 law enforcement agencies.

Of the traffic tickets that were issued, state troopers gave out the most citations at more than 1,000. The next highest was police in Ft. Lupton, followed by Arapahoe County sheriff’s deputies and then the Frisco Police Department.

Officials say that 90 tickets were issued to drivers who had an unbuckled child in their vehicle.

According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, more than 60 lives could’ve been saved in 2014 if they had been wearing seat belts.
