Violation Citation

Violation Citation

Put your seatbelt on. Strap yourself in.
Buckle up tight when you go for a spin.

No matter where you drive. If it’s near or far,
Buckle up all the riders in your car.

‘Cause it’s the law and if you’re in violation,
An officer will be right there to give you a citation.

Yes, they’re stepping up enforcement,
Sending out more police,
‘Cause Texas wants you in one piece.

Put your seatbelt on. Strap yourself in.
Buckle up tight when you go for a spin.

(A new state laws says everyone in a vehicle has to buckle up. That means passengers in the front and back seats can be fined for not wearing a seatbelt. Seatbelts save lives, and they can also save you from an expensive ticket. Click it or ticket. It’s your choice. You pick.)

When you go for a spin.

Click It Song (Explosion)

Click it. Click click it.
Click click it. Click it.

Click it if you’re tall.
Click click it if you’re short.
Click it in your automobile before you start.
Click it for your babies, toddlers, and kids.
Don’t just pretend to and say you did.

Click it if you’re a rebellious teen.
Click it even if your two-year-old screams.

Click it.

Click it if you’re driving one short block.
Click it if you’re driving around the clock.
Click it if you’re on time or running late.
Click it automatically. Don’t hesitate.

Is there ever going to be a time when I don’t have to click it?
The answer is “No! No! No! No! No!” You’ll get a ticket.

(Drivers and passengers, whether you’re going two blocks or two-hundred miles, be sure to buckle up. If you don’t, you could be fined up to two-hundred dollars. Click it or ticket. Brought to you by the Texas Department of Transportation.)

Click it. Click it.
