"Click It or Ticket" Numbers

Does the "click it or ticket" program force people to buckle up?   It's probably too early to say for sure, but new figures released by TX-DOT and DPS are promising.

The Tyler Police Department says it found 93 percent of drivers were using safety belts during the enforcement period. That's compared to 90.5 in Dallas; and 85.5 in San Antonio.

In the month-long special enforcment of seat belt laws, Tyler Police issued 350 tickets for "failure to use safety belts."
