New Jersey police hunt down seatbelt violators

Police across New Jersey have set up checkpoints in an effort to enforce seatbelt laws over the holiday weekend.

Authorities are beefing up enforcement with extra patrols. Linden police officials say they issued 75 tickets Friday on Roselle and Elizabeth avenues alone.

The checkpoints are part of the "Click it or Ticket" campaign. The state is also employing an aggressive driving campaign to ensure motorists practice safe driving.

All drivers caught without a seatbelt will be fined $46.
