"Click It or Ticket" Campaign to Begin Monday

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

The Texas Department of Transportation is kicking off their “Click It or Ticket” campaign on Monday.

Law enforcement is cracking down on people not wearing seatbelts.

In Texas, the law requires everyone in a vehicle to be buckled up, including back seat passengers.

In 2014, over 2,500 crashes happened where someone was either killed or seriously injured from not wearing their seatbelt.

Wearing a seat belt increases the chances of surviving a crash by 45 percent.

In pickup trucks, that number jumps to 60 percent, as those vehicles are twice as likely as cars to roll over in a crash.
