More than three million Texans are going to be traveling for the Memorial Day weekend, and it may feel like every one of them is in front of you on US-59. There will be enough road stress, so do yourself a favor and avoid the hassle of getting fined two hundred bucks on top of it.
We know you always obey the seat belt law and buckle up, but just in case you need some encouragement, the annual Click it or Ticket campaign starts Monday, and officers will be looking to hand tickets to unbuckled folks.
And what's the rule for the kids and booster seats?
The annual Click It or Ticket campaign starts soon, meaning officers will be focused on passing out tickets to those of us that head down the road without seat belts fastened.
The dates cover Memorial Day - one of the busiest and most dangerous weekends to be out on the highway.
This will be a big weekend on the roads, and police in East Texas and across the US are doing what they can to keep us all safe. Don't forget to buckle up! Friday will be the busiest travel day, but some folks are starting their vacations now and we can expect the roads to be packed all week.
