This week TxDot is targeting pick up truck drivers in hopes to get more of them to buckle up before they get behind the wheel.
TxDot says most people do a good job of buckling up, but truck drivers and their passengers could use some work. TxDot believes that 90% of drivers and 80% of passengers do wear their seatbelt. This might not seem low but statistics show, that one out of every two truck drivers is killed in traffic accidents, weren't wearing their seatbelt.
