This year’s Click It or Ticket Campaign will be May 22-June 4, which includes the Memorial Day weekend, and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is urging Texas drivers to buckle up.
Once again, the agency is supporting efforts by the Texas Department of Transportation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Texas Department of Public Safety and police and sheriff’s departments across the state to save lives by promoting increased seat belt use.
“Taking time to buckle your seat belt is the single most important step you can take to protect yourself in a vehicle crash,” said Bev Kellner, AgriLife Extension vehicle safety program manager, College Station. Kellner said wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of dying by 45 percent for people in the front seat of passenger cars.
Through the application of science-based knowledge, AgriLife Extension creates high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change.
