Click It or Ticket Campaign to Start May 22

DPS troopers are expecting to see plenty of drivers hit the road for Memorial Day weekend. If you plan to be one of them, remember this: Corporal John Gonzales says, "We'll be focusing on all seat belt violations. All troopers will be looking at this."

The Click It or Ticket campaign is back. It starts May 22nd and runs through June 4th. During that time, DPS Troopers across the state will be watching for seat belt violators. Corporal Gonzales says the goal of the campaign is not to write citations but rather to promote compliance of the law. He says 85% of people didn't break it last year. Gonzales says, "The numbers did rise. We raised seven points last year from the year before. So, hopefully, this year will be even better."

Troopers will also be checking to make sure children are properly restrained. So, if yours are under four make sure they're in a car seat.
