QUINCY -- The Quincy Police Department issued 28 seat belt citations during the recent Fourth of July "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" safety campaigns.

The department also issued four child restraint citations, three no insurance citations, three warning tickets, one disobeyed stop sign citation, one improper lane usage citation and one no valid driver's license citation.

The Quincy Police Department joined more than 160 other state and local law enforcement agencies conducting the crackdown, which featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach actives.

The campaign was funded by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
