EL PASO-The 11th annual Safety Campaign decided to hang out in the Borderland.
TXDOT wanted to remind drivers and passengers of cars and trucks that this summer, the seat belt law will be enforced. In the past decade, this campaign has resulted in fewer fatalities and casualties. In fact, nearly 50,000 fewer.
Almost 94% of Texas drivers use their seat belt. TXDOT is targeting the remained 5% and they want to remind drivers to use the belts regardless of the length of trip.
To drive the point home, a 2 ton pickup truck was suspended in the air using only seat belts.
