New York State police reported significant results from their crack down on unbuckled drivers upstate and on Long Island.
Officials said from May 21 to June 3, state police ticketed nearly 12,700 drivers during the "Buckle Up New York" campaign.
800 of those tickets were issued for child restraint violations.
State police have operated the campaign twice annually for the past eight years.
In 2011, more than 300,000 tickets were given out to people violating New York's seatbelt law.
