Increased Law Enforcement over Holidays

Buckling up over the holidays will be the focus of East Texas law enforcement agencies, who will soon join forces on Texas roadways.

State troopers and local police are gearing up for "Click it or Ticket."

The program is designed to ensure holiday travelers are wearing their seatbelts while driving.

They'll also be watching for speeders. Click it or ticket begins November 24th and runs through December 1st.

The crack down is a result to Texas leading the nation in traffic fatalities with over 3,500 people killed ever year.

Remember that every person sitting in the front seat, and all children under 17 must be secured with a safety belt under Texas law.
