LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - The Constable’s Office at Precinct One helped wrap up their 2021 Click It or Ticket campaign.

In total, the agency gave out a total of 1,500 citations.

Out of those, 1,090 were seat belt related.

The Constable’s Office says people don’t think it could happen to them, but they still see the need to put out the word that seat belts could help save lives.

“That tells us that Laredo needs a lot of education on the importance of wearing a seat belt,” said Deputy Mario Reyes “It’s to avoid a tragedy. People don’t see it, but every day in the state of Texas, since November 7, 2002, we’ve had a death here in the state.”

Apart from the campaign, the agency made 10 arrests for people who were wanted on outstanding warrants.
