New law will be enforced starting today....

This weekend news and the lighted signs along our Houston highways remind us not only to "click it or ticket" and "Seat belts all the time, all riders, every ride" is not only a new campaign to remind Houston area drivers to wear their seat belts but could also be kicking off the new year of seat belt laws for our children too. 

Last September a series of new laws regarding drivers and riders in Texas including laws regarding cell phone  and texting while driving as well as new laws regarding booster seat use. The law regarding booster seats gave parents a "grace period" where from Sept. 1, 2009 to June 1, 2010 parents could obtain the booster seat they needed for their children. Warnings were issued. But starting today parents will no longer receive warnings but tickets, fines and possibly even greater prosecution  for not having their children in a booster  car seat. 

What is the new child safety/booster/car seat  law in Texas?

That's great that that is now law.  I like to see the kids in proper seats that protect them, and the booster seats let them look out, also...

Christy: Great reminder- No matter where you live, it's just safer to wear a seatbelt and have your kids seated properly.  For whatever hassle it might be, it sure beats flying through the windshield.  Thanks for sharing!

Christy,

Great reminder.  Someone has spent a fortune advertising on TV and radio about click it or ticket.
