Click it or ticket enforcement begins today.

That means if you get in a car and don’t buckle up, you’ll get a ticket.

May is Seat Belt Safety Awareness Month.

Officers are ramping up their efforts to ticket anyone not wearing a seatbelt, both drivers and passengers.

Enforcement will increase at night when TX-DOT says people avoid wearing seatbelts because they think they can’t be seen and more accidents occur.

The campaign runs until June 2.
