AMARILLO -- TxDOT, Amarillo Police, and the DPS held a kickoff for this years Click It Or Ticket Campaign.

When the “Click It or Ticket” campaign began in 2002, only 76% of motorists buckled up. Today, 9 out of 10 Texas motorists are buckling up.

"Seat belts saves lives," said John Barton, TxDOT deputy executive director. "That's a fact."

Wearing a seat belt increases the chances of surviving a serious crash by 45-percent.

Texas law requires everyone in a vehicle to be buckled up, including back seat passengers.
