The Associated Press reports the Texas DPS and local police across the state are beefing up enforcement of seat belt laws through Sunday, June 5th. All people riding in a motor vehicle must buckle up. Children younger than 8 must be in a child safety or booster seat unless they're taller than 4'9". If you are issued a citation, you may have to pay a fine and/or be ordered to complete a six hour seat belt class. Bottom line, seat belts save lives.
