A Rhode Island city has cited 178 people for seatbelt violations in a single week as part of a national campaign to encourage motor vehicle safety.

The Warwick Police Department announced Wednesday that officers issued the citations for violating the state’s seat belt and child safety seats last week as part of the Click It or Ticket campaign.

Police say they also arrested 13 people for driving with suspended licenses and charged five with driving under the influence.

Police departments throughout the state and nation stepped up the enforcement of seatbelt laws as part of the campaign.
