BOWIE, Md. (AP) - Some police officers in Maryland will be out Thursday giving cash to drivers wearing their seatbelts. But beware: they may give you a ticket if you don't.
Prince George's County police will be at Route 301 and Ballpark Drive in Bowie starting at noon watching passing vehicles. Officers and safety advocates will distribute $1 bills to drivers who have all occupants properly buckled. Those riding without seatbelts will get educational materials and face being fined.
A local bank and the police department are sponsoring the money giveaway.
The program is an extension of the "Click It Or Ticket" campaign that is run in Maryland and other states.
