Hello, Houston. It’s time to talk traffic.

TxDOT is launching their “Click it or Ticket” campaign, a key component of #EndTheStreakTX effort. That’s a broader social media and word-of-mouth campaign that is encouraging drivers to make safer choices while behind the wheel, such as wearing a seat belt, driving the speed limit, never texting while driving, and never driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Nov. 7, 2000, was the last deathless day on Texas roadways.


TxDOT will be running its “Click it or Ticket” enforcement effort, from Nov. 16 to Nov. 29. More drivers are expected to hit the road during the Thanksgiving holiday, so law enforcement across the state will step up enforcement of the state’s seat belt and car seat laws. Texas law requires everyone in a vehicle to be properly secured in the front and back seat or face fines and fees of up to $200. Children younger than 8 years old must be restrained in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they are taller than 4 feet 9 inches. If a child isn’t secured, the driver faces fines of up to $250.

In all honesty, this is the simplest and way everyone can protect themselves. Buckling up can truly save a life. These efforts have saved an estimated 6,234 lives and prevented more than 100,000 serious injuries in Texas.

Buckle up and drive safe Houston.
