Buckle Up For Safety i f you  sae thousands of lives with a simple cltclwould yout The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is TaDOT announced today that May k the month for Texans who don't buckle up! Buckle Up Texas! Month will spotlight the importaace of safety belts, air bags and clt/Id safety seats. The month will also be celebrated with increased education and enforcement of ef- forts. Translated,that means you are more likely to get a ticket for not wearing your safety belt, so you'd better learn to like it. "Many people just don't realized how much your chance of serious injury or is death is reduced ff you wear safety belts,  said Bill Burnett,TXDOT execu- tive director. Every state has a child safety law, and 46 states require drivers to wear seat belts. TxDOT is providing police departments with grants to conduct a special enfor- cement effort during May. "Safety belts saved an es- timated 34,794 lives from 1983 to 1992," said BurneR. We plan to cutminate this awareness month on Memorial Day weekend, the opening of the tourist season, so more lives can be saved. "It's too bad that the risk of getting a ticket is the only the only thing that will make some people buckle up," he added, "but supports safety-belt use and the laws requiring it. State law requires al/drivers and front seat pamengers buckle up. State law also requires all children under the age of two to be restrained in a child safety seat belt. Fines for not buckling up rang from 25-50. More than 60 percent of the ,O37 people iUed in accklents t year in Team we're not wear- ing a safety belt.
