In news with Kaitlin Moore, a new police program designed to prevent serious injuries in San Angelo traffic collisions began this week.

“Buckle Down and Stay Strapped In” kicked off Monday.

San Angelo police officers say they see it almost daily, people injured in collisions because they’re not wearing seatbelts.

Numbers show, its younger drivers who are wearing their seatbelts.  In San Angelo, motorists 60 years and over are the ones who are not.

The campaign will include a series of monthly surveys at five San Angelo locations where officers see a high number of traffic collisions.

They’ll collect data and release those results for drivers.

This is the final week for San Angelo school district students before they’re out for the Christmas break.

At Crockett Elementary School Monday, close to 50 second graders, many in reindeer antlers sang traditional Christmas carols for their annual school program. 

They’ve been practicing for days to learn all the words to popular songs like “Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.”

Family members sat in the audience at the Crockett cafeteria.

Friday, Dec. 16th Christmas break begins for San Angelo ISD.
