Eau Claire sheriff reports 50 tickets written for seat belts last week
At least one Wisconsin sheriff says his officers are ticketing a lot more motorists for not wearing their seat belts.
Eau Claire County Sheriff Ron Cramer said his department issued 50 tickets last week, and that's up considerably.
