Operation Buckle Up A Success

State troopers say this year's Operation Buckle Up was a success.

The two week enforcement blitz ended yesterday with troopers writing 8502 seatbelt tickets and 679 violations for child restraints.

Troopers say compared to last year, seatbelt enforcement was up 42%, while child restraint saw a 26% increase.

Currently the seatbelt compliance rate in North Carolina is 88.6 percent. Troopers say their goal is to raise the voluntary compliance rate to over 90%.
