‘Click it or Ticket’ mobilization continues through June 3


What is free, takes just seconds, and prevents one of the leading causes of death? Taking those few seconds to buckle your seat belt is the most crucial step you can take to protect yourself in a crash. Those few seconds can save your life and save your friends and family from having to go through a needless tragedy. Fortunately, most Texans now buckle up, but some groups of motorists continue not taking the message to heart by not consistently using their seat belts. The demographic of motorist most likely to be unrestrained are men and young adults, especially pickup truck drivers and their passengers. In 2016, the use of seat belts in passenger vehicles saved an estimated 14,668 lives of occupants ages 5 and older. Sadly, in 2016, there were 10,428 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
