DICKINSON - According to a news release from Dickinson's Safe Communities Coalition, the North Dakota Department of Transportation and the North Dakota Highway Patrol Department were recently awarded area law enforcement agencies additional grant dollars for officers enforcing seatbelt laws in May and June.

The Stark County Sheriff's Department, Dickinson Police Department and Billings County Sheriff's Department received the extra funds.

The news release went on to say that law enforcement officers across the nation, including North Dakota, are taking part in the Click It or Ticket enforcement this month.

Safe Communities would like to remind area residents that wearing a seatbelt costs nothing, while not wearing one could cost you a traffic ticket or even your life.
