LUBBOCK, Texas -

May marks the 15th anniversary of TxDOT's "Click It or Ticket" Campaign urging Texans to buckle up.

Lubbock TxDOT hosted a press conference to highlight the importance of their mission.

Organizers said wearing a seat belt is the single most important step you can take to protect yourself. The campaign has resulted in more than 5,000 fewer traffic fatalities.

Sammy Rivas with Covenant Health Systems said, "The fact that the seat belt can make a difference if you live or die if you're involved in a motor vehicle crash should be very important. Wearing a seat belt increases your likelihood of surviving an accident by 45 percent and 60 percent if in a pickup truck."

Along with the annual campaign, police departments in Texas and across the nation will step up enforcement efforts from May 22 to June 4.
