League City Police Department to Buckle Down on Those Not Buckling Up

Teens hitting the road this graduation and prom season should always wear their seat belts or be ready to face the consequences. That’s the message the League City Police Department will be sending, as they buckle down on all motorists not buckling up—especially teens.

“Unfortunately, too many of our drivers and passengers, particularly teens, still take the attitude that a serious car crash will never happen to them, but these tragedies can and do happen all the time. That’s why we’re trying to educate our citizens, as well as enforce the law,” said Police Chief Mike Jez.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, teenage drivers and passengers still have not gotten the message about the importance of wearing a seat belt and are still one of the least likely groups to buckle up. That’s why in an effort to save more lives, beginning May 23 through June 5, League City Police Department is joining with other State and local law enforcement agencies throughout Texas to step up seat belt enforcement with increased patrols and other special Click It or Ticket efforts to help ensure that more people, especially teens, always wear their seat belts when driving or riding in a motor vehicle.

“To help save more lives on Texas’ roadways, we’re going to make sure both teens and adults understand that wearing your seat belt costs you nothing, but not wearing it could cost you a ticket, or worse - your life,” said Chief Jez. “No more exceptions. No more excuses. We want all drivers and passengers to always remember to buckle up day and night.”
