The Saline County Sheriff's Office participated in the 2012 national Click It Or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign between May 21st and June 2nd.
According to Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, deputies made 224 stops during the Special Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) and wrote 177 tickets for seat belt violations.
Sheriff Kochanowski tells KSAL News the numbers were a bit unexpected, "I'm surprised that after all the media attention given to the Click It Or Ticket program - that people are still not buckling up," he said.
The Sheriff's Office also made two DUI arrests during the program as well as issuing 2 speeding tickets.
Deputies handed out 22 additional citations for vehicle violations.
