clip_image006 Beginning May 19th through June 1st, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, in coordination with the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT), will be participating in a Click It or Ticket grant designated for seatbelt enforcement. The purpose for this campaign is to bring to light the importance of wearing a seatbelt and to reduce serious and fatal injuries. The success of the program is accomplished by brining awareness to the public, maximizing the visibility of enforcement to the public, and focusing on those individuals driving without their seatbelts during the upcoming holiday period.

clip_image008 Last year, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office issued 366 citations for seatbelt violations during the Click It or Ticket campaign. This year, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Section has investigated 7 fatalities out in the county. Out of those 7, 3 were not wearing a seatbelt. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), if all passenger vehicle occupants age 5 and older had worn seat belts, an additional 3,031 people could have been saved in 2012. Most fatal crashes happen within 25 miles from home and at speeds of less than 40 mph.

State laws passed in 2009 included new safety belt requirements for both drivers and passengers. All passengers (including adults) in the back seat now must be buckled up, and children younger than 8 years old have to ride in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they are 4 feet 9 inches tall. Fines range from $25 to $250 plus court costs.
