WATCH: ‘Ghost Shoes’ Display At Memorial Hermann Commemorates Unbuckled Lives Lost

TxDOT, Local Law Enforcement Agencies, Hospitals and surviving family members will gather as part of the annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign

As part of the annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign, TxDOT, Local Law Enforcement Agencies, Hospitals and surviving family members will gather at a vast display of ‘Ghost Shoes’ at Memorial Hermann Southwest to commemorate 929 unbuckled lives lost.

Among the speakers at TxDOT’s press conference will be David and Wendy Mills of Spring, TX, who lost their 16 year-old daughter, Kailee, in a crash last year in which she was not buckled up

As part of the annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign, Texas law enforcement officers will increase their efforts from May 21 to June 3 to ticket unbelted drivers and passengers. Statewide seat belt use has increased to nearly 92 percent, yet 929 people were not buckled up and died last year on Texas roads. Fifty-seven percent of those crashes occurred at night.
