The Belleville Police Service is releasing the results of a three-day joint traffic blitz held last week.
The combined initiative involved the BPS, Kingston Police, OPP and the ministries of transportation and environment.
Enforcement was conducted on “modified vehicles” with inspections in Napanee last Wednesday, Kingston last Thursday and Belleville last Friday.
In total 51 vehicles were inspected with 36 provincial offence notices issued for things like defective breaks, muffler issues, or improper tires.
Seven people were charged with driving while suspended, 11 sets of licence plates were seized, 28 repair notices were issued and one vehicle was impounded.
The out of service rate for Belleville and Kingston was 30%, while in Napanee that rate shot up to 50%.
Meanwhile, in town, the Belleville Police Traffic Safety Unit issued 76 tickets in August.
Twenty-two of those were for expired tags, 16 for speeding, 15 for cell phone use and six for driving without a licence.
