Vernon police and members of Metro Traffic Services handed out tickets for 48 seat belt and cell phone infractions during a concentrated enforcement action on Wednesday morning.
The enforcement effort took place on Whitney T. Ferguson Road, near the exit 66 on-ramp for Interstate-84 westbound. It was paid for with federal Click It or Ticket program grant money.
Vernon police spokesman William Meier said that in addition to the 40-plus tickets, four vehicles were towed away for driver's license or registration violations.
Four child car seats were also inspected by a member of the Vernon Fire Department, Meier said. The car seats were in working order and the children were restrained properly, Meier said.
Cars were only pulled over if an officer acting as a spotter noticed a violation, Meier said.
Meier said residents can expect more intensified enforcement through Dec. 16.
