CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake police cited more than 20 motorists Tuesday in a check of seat belt use.



A spotter radioed police stationed at the ComEd building on Route 31, just north of Route 176, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to direct seat belt violators in the parking lot.



“You’ll see cars weaving [while they’re putting on their seat belt] as they get pulled over,” Staff Sgt. Dan Hulata said. “Sometimes they’ll pull over and still won’t be wearing a seat belt.”



On Monday, Crystal Lake police began a two-week program of seat belt checks by day and DUI enforcement by night.
