Click It or Ticket Campaign Resumes in May

The City of Lubbock and the Texas Department of Transportation are teaming up for another Click It or Ticket campaign. The announcement was made Tuesday morning at the Lubbock Citizens Traffic Commission meeting.

Officers will again be on the lookout for those who are not buckling up, which TX-DOT says is costing Texans their lives. Sunday night, a Lubbock woman and two of her children were killed in a car crash in Slaton. But had the children been wearing their seat belts, Lubbock Police say they might have been saved.

"Children are at our mercy," said Sgt. Ronnie Sowell, Lubbock Police Department. "And we control to a degree their destiny and if we don't take the time to refrain them, then we're not being fair to them as adults, as parents."

The Click It or Ticket campaign begins May 19th and runs through June 1st. Tickets for not buckling up range from $25 to $250.
