Lewisville Police take part in “Click It or Ticket”

Post Date:May 19, 2017
The Lewisville Police Department is joining other Texas law enforcement agencies in increasing their efforts from May 22 to June 4 to identify and issue tickets to drivers and passengers with seat belt violations.

Texas law requires the driver and all passengers to wear a seat belt, regardless of where they are seated in the vehicle. Unbelted fatalities increased 9 percent from 2015 to 2016. Wearing a seat belt helps keep an occupant from being ejected in a crash and increases the chances of surviving by 45 percent in a passenger vehicle and up to 60 percent in a pickup truck. Children younger than 8 must be in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they’re taller than 4 feet 9 inches. If they aren’t properly restrained, the driver faces fines up to $250 plus court costs.

The Texas “Click It or Ticket” campaign has saved 5,068 lives in the last 15 years and prevented 86,359 people from serious injury in traffic crashes. Properly wearing a seat belt is the most effective way to prevent death or serious injury in the event of a crash, and it’s the law. Texas “Click It or Ticket” is part of a joint effort by Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and numerous city and county law enforcement agencies across the state.
