Seat Belts Focus of Safety Message at Midlands Auto Show


(Omaha, Neb.)- The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) will promote seat belt safety during the upcoming Midlands International Auto Show, January 28-31, at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha.

Visitors to the law enforcement booth will have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a driving simulator, take a ride in the seat belt convincer, and watch a demonstration of a rollover simulator as they learn the important role seat belts play in saving lives. In addition to the various hands-on activities, visitors to the law enforcement booth will have the opportunity to meet the Nebraska State Patrol Mascot, Trooper Buck L. Up.

“The unfortunate fact is far too many people are dying in crashes on Nebraska roadways because they weren’t buckled up,” said Colonel Bradley Rice, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We hope folks will stop by our booth and experience firsthand how seat belts save lives.”

According to the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS), in 2015, 189 of the 214 fatalities on Nebraska roads involved motor vehicle occupants. Of those 189 fatalities, 144 (76%) were not wearing seat belts.

Col. Rice said, “These are preventable deaths, but we can’t save lives without your help. Please do your part and buckle up, every trip, every time.” ###
