Click It or Ticket Campaign Starts Monday in Texas

Lufkin PoliceWe 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?

That child safety seat rule can get a little confusing.  I’ve got three kids between the ages of 5 and 9, and I’m not really sure when I’m supposed to graduate them to the next level of safety seat so I did some research to save us worry and a fine.

According to TxDot:

Infants and toddlers need the rear-facing seat until they’re 2.

Any child 2 or older should use a forward-facing safety seat with a harness up to the highest weight or height allowed by their safety seat’s manufacturer. 

The next stage is the booster seat with a belt, and kids should stay in that as long as the belt fits properly, which is typically when they reach 4 feet 9 inches in height and are between 8 and 12 years old.

When the lap belt hits kids properly across the shoulder, they can sit on the seat with no booster, and they should ride in the back seat until they’re 13.

Officers will be watching next week to make sure the kids are buckled up like they should be, and they’ll be looking to make sure that shoulder strap is holding in drivers and passengers too.

The annual Click it or Ticket campaign runs from May 22 through June 4.
