Unbuckled adults in the back seat can now be ticketed

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Department of Transportation and law enforcement agencies are kicking off the 9th annual Click It or Ticket campaign and adult back seat riders could get a ticket if they're not buckled up.

The safety belt enforcement campaign takes place May 24th through June 6th. Transportation officials say state laws enacted in 2009 could result in more citations this year if drivers don't follow the new safety belt laws.

For the first time, all passengers in the back seat now must be buckled up, and children younger than 8-years-old have to ride in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they are taller than 4 feet 9 inches.

Fines range from $25 to $250 plus court costs.
