"Click It or Ticket" Campaign Kicks Off

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA): -

Ø In 2010, 22,187 vehicle occupants were killed in crashes, 51% were NOT wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

Ø Teens and young adults ages 18-34 years old are less likely to wear seat belts and are at the greatest risk of injury or death.

Ø On any given day about 38 people who are NOT buckled up are killed in motor vehicle crashes.

Ø One out of every five drivers will be involved in a crash this year.

Ø Seat belts save lives!

Remember, all passengers, even adults, in the back seat must be buckled up. Children younger than 8 years old have to ride in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they are taller than 4 feet 9 inches. The average cost of a seat belt violation is $150.

Your local Law Enforcement agencies will join other Law Enforcement officers from across the State of Texas to step up enforcement of the state’s safety belt laws between May 21 and June 3, including the Memorial Day holiday weekend. We encourage all vehicle occupants to “Buckle Up”.
