Click It or Ticket It

The Texas Depatment of Transportation’s 9th annual Click It or Ticket It spring campaign that warns drivers and passengers to fasten their safety belts or expect to get a ticket kicked off today in front of the Long Center with an inflatable replica of Big Tex to add to the visual. Waco resident and teenage driver Darcey Hyatt relives her terrifying accident  this year that saw her lose control of her truck on icy roads on I-35 and being struck from behind by an 18-wheeler and slammed into the concrete guard rail. “If my friend and I had not been wearing a seatbelt I would not be here today.” said Darcey, shown in front of photos of her totaled truck.
