May 21 to June 3 (to include Memorial Day weekend) Texas law enforcement will step up enforcement of Texas seat belt laws. Many agencies are also on monitoring for impaired drivers.
In Texas, the law requires everyone in a vehicle to buckle up or face fines and court costs up to $200. Children younger than 8 years must be in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they’re taller than 4 feet 9 inches. If they aren’t properly restrained, the driver faces fines up to $250 plus court costs.
