Click It or Ticket Resumes in Texas

By  | 

AUSTIN -- Law enforcement agencies across Texas are taking part in a seat belt enforcement drive called "Click It or Ticket."

The effort began Monday and runs through June 3.

The Department of Public Safety says pickups will be a target for enforcement because those vehicles roll twice as often as passenger cars in fatal crashes.

Traffic fines for not using a seat belt or securing a child in a safety seat can run from $25 to $200, plus court costs.

Also, AAA Texas reports more than three and a-half million Texans are expected to hit the road over Memorial Day weekend.

The group reports the most popular driving destinations for Texas travelers over the holiday weekend are expected to be San Antonio, national parks, Branson, Las Vegas and Colorado.
