Texas 'Click It or Ticket' campaign saving lives

Thousands of Texas law enforcement officers will work additional hours to check for seat belt use during a campaign that runs through June 5

Abilene Reporter-News

Over the past 10 years, the Click It or Ticket campaign has saved more than 2,800 lives in Texas and led to 48,000 fewer serious injuries while lowering related costs by $10 billion, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Before the campaign began, only about 76 percent of the Texans reported using seat belts in vehicles. Last year, the Texas Transportation Institute reported, the usage rate reached almost 94 percent.

Thousands of Texas law enforcement officers will work additional hours to check for seat belt use during this year's Click It or Ticket campaign, which began Monday and runs through June 5. The campaign combines education and enforcement to achieve compliance with seat belt usage.
