LINCOLN – With memorial weekend approaching and the summer travel season underway, troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol will be conducting a ‘Click it or Ticket’ event.

According to a release from NSP, troopers will be patrolling the state’s roads day and night in an effort to prevent serious injury or fatality crashes. The national “Click it or Ticket” campaign runs from Monday, May 24 through Sunday, June 6.

Traffic safety takes everyone working together as the stats are clear that seat belts save lives. Every time you get into a vehicle, buckle up and increase your chances of surviving a crash.

“Click it or Ticket” is a national mobilization of law enforcement agencies with a focus on seat belt violations and education. The Nebraska State Patrol is one of dozens of agencies across Nebraska participating in the effort.

In 2019, 63 percent of the people who died on Nebraska roads were not wearing their seat belt at the time of the crash. National statistics show that, when used, seat belts reduce the risk of fatalities by 45 percent for front-seat passenger car occupants and by 60 percent for light truck occupants.

Troopers and dispatchers will be working overtime as part of this enforcement effort thanks in part to a grant for $25,000 from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office.
