Click-it Or Ticket Brings Results


19247770_1097581423718525_4363579803101456007_n.jpg June 14, 2017 PRESS RELEASE
 The Vidor Police Department teamed up with the Texas Department Of Transportation for the annual Click it or Ticket campaign May 22nd through Jue 4th 2017. The purpose of this program is to reduce traffic injuries and death in our community due to people forgetting, or just refusing to use their safety belt. 

 Safety belts were one of the first pieces of safety equipment mandated by the Highway Safety Act of 1966 to be standard equipment on every automobile. Since the enactment of the law, in addition to seat belts and shatter proof glass the automotive industry has invented padded vehicle interiors, crunch zones, and now smart air bags, all to protect the occupants of the vehicle. We have also seen the requirement of better protection of our children through the use of child passenger safety seats. The only piece of equipment that requires a choice is the use of safety restraints.

 During the 14 day operation our patrol officers dedicated 79.5 hours to this life saving effort. Through our efforts the local compliance rate increased by 47%.

 The Vidor Police Department is dedicated to protecting and serving the citizens of our community and we believe lives were saved during this operation by our efforts.

Library Amnesty

Courtesey: The Vidorian.com


Vidor Public Library patrons will have an entire month to check under the bed, behind the television, DVD or CD player or any other place long forgotten or misplaced overdue items checked out from the library and return them without penalty during the library’s June amnesty.

According to librarian Colette Turner, “Library patrons who have overdue materials, library books, DVD’s, and CD’s, no matter how long they have been checked out, may return them with all fees and fines waved for each item.” Turner said the no fee-no fine amnesty period is only good during the month of June and that the items must still be in good condition.
