The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) held the kickoff for its 2023 Click It or Ticket campaign at a news conference held Thursday morning at the Texas Travel Information Center, located at 9700 East I-40.

During the campaign kickoff, roadway officials came together to speak on the importance of the campaign and their continued efforts to urge individuals to buckle up every time they are in a vehicle, no matter how small or long the travel.

According to TxDOT, wearing a seatbelt reduces the risk of dying in a vehicle crash by up to 45%; in a pickup, wearing a seatbelt reduces the risk of dying by 69%. In the year 2022, TxDOT has seen a 2.5% increase in deaths regarding individuals not wearing their seatbelts, or approximately 1,258 deaths. The same year, there were 3,357 vehicle crashes in Texas in which unbuckled motorists sustained fatal or serious injuries.
