Amarillo, TX - Today the Amarillo Police Department is kicking off its "Click It or Ticket" campaign to increase seat belt use.

Extra officers will be on patrol from now until June 5th looking for seatbelt and child restraint violations.

Texas law requires every person in a vehicle to be secured by a safety belt, including passengers in the back seat.

Last year, ten people died in fatal accidents in Amarillo while not wearing safety belts.
