Click It or Ticket Campaign Drives Successful Numbers

The promise of tickets for seatbelt violators appears to have made a difference for drivers in Lubbock. The Department of Public Safety ran the Click It or Ticket campaign from November 24th to December 1st. The goal is to get people to buckle up, especially during the holidays, and Corporal John Gonzales says officers gave out a dramatically lower number of tickets.

In Lubbock County, troopers wrote only 10 tickets for people not wearing their seatbelt. They did, however, make 11 DWI arrests and 36 criminal arrests. Gonzales says he hopes the low numbers aren't just a product of the campaign.

"We hope they will continue to practice that by just putting their seatbelt on in an everyday situation and not just because of the holidays and knowing that officers were out there targeting that specific violation," said Gonzales.

Lubbock DPS covers an area that extends to Witchita Falls. In the area, troopers wrote 170 seatbelt tickets, 53 DWI's, and made 104 criminal arrests.
