On the first day of holiday travel, the Lubbock DPS is reminding you to buckle-up or pay up. The Click It or Ticket campaign started Sunday and continues through Thanksgiving. The Department of Public Safety is once again promoting the Click It or Ticket campaign, hoping to save lives by forcing people to wear their seatbelt. Officers from all law enforcement agencies will be out in full force writing tickets to seat belt violators. Fines are up to $200 during the campaign.
If you are traveling this holiday, here is some good news. Prices at the pump have dropped more than a nickel nationwide over the past two weeks. In Lubbock, gas prices have been seen as low as a $1.19 for regular unleaded. Experts say the main reasons for the price plunge are lower oil costs and higher gasoline supplies.
The Lubbock Animal Shelter is making it easier for you to buy a pet for Christmas. Adoption fees for adult dogs and cats have been reduced to $10 and anyone over age 60 can get a pet free. There are plenty of animals waiting for a new home. You can go visit them at the shelter, weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
