Click It or Ticket Campaign

TXDOT officials with the Click It or Ticket campaign made a stop in Wichita Falls Thursday, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the program.

Law enforcement gathered at the Wichita Falls Police Department Thursday morning along with Wichita Falls Mayor Glen Barham.

They unveiled an 8 foot-tall sculpture, designed to represent the nearly 3,000 lives saved by seat belts in the past decade.

We spoke with crowd-goers at the anniversary on how this campaign will help jump start good habits.

"Get in the routine of clicking it even before you start your car. Get in there, close your door, and the first thing you should be doing is fastening your seat belt before you even start it." said Frank Mooney

Officials say before the campaign began in 2002 only 76% of the state's population was buckling up, but now passengers are using seat belts in record numbers.
