Police Out in Full Force to Make Sure You Get the Message: Click It or Ticket

We've all heard that seat belts save lives, and for the next two weeks law enforcement will be out in full force ticketing violators. With Memorial Day weekend coming up, more travelers are expected on the roads. Schools are letting out and summer vacations are starting, so the chance for a disaster on the road increases. Authorities will be out looking for all violations, from speeding, to drinking and driving, to driving with out a seatbelt or not properly restraining your children.

"The law says any child under the age of four must be in a car seat, and any child 4 to 16 must a least be in the seat belt system. So encourage parents to please buckle up their children. DPS has zero tolerance on the no seat belt policy, no warnings policy. So if you are stopped by a Trooper you will get a citation," says Corporal John Gonzales, with Department of Public Safety.

Department of Public Safety the Click it or Ticket campaign just hit the air this week, this is a state wide effort. And just so you know a ticket for no seatbelt can range in price from $25 to $500.
