MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX -- May marks the 22nd anniversary of “Click It or Ticket,” a campaign urging Texans to buckle up.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office obtained a grant through the Texas Department of Transportation, which will assist in deploying additional law enforcement resources to target those who drive without wearing a seat belt. The dates for this enforcement period are May 20 – June 4, 2024.

Wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of dying by 45% for people in the front seat of passenger cars and 60% for those in pickups. Your seat belt is designed to keep you from being thrown into the dashboard or windshield – or even onto the road. An airbag can be a big lifesaver. But without a seat belt, it can be ineffective and even dangerous. You may think your airbag is going to protect you, but it is designed to work with seat belts, not to replace them.

No matter what type of vehicle you drive, one of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make is to buckle up.
