TxDOT gears up to start "Click it or Ticket" campaign

Posted: Updated:
 The Texas Department of Transportation is getting ready to kick off this year's "Click it or Ticket" campaign.
     
This is the 13th year that police are boosting enforcement.

If you are caught not wearing a seat belt, you could face a fine up to $200.  

In 2013, TxDOT reported 943 fatalities and more than 5,000 serious injuries due to people not wearing their seat belt.  
     
Officers say wearing a seat belt increases the chances of surviving a serious crash by 45%.  

The campaign will run through June 1st.
