Motorists Reminded to Buckle Up as
Click It or Ticket Enforcement Begins



(Lincoln, Neb.)- “Seat belts save lives”  is the message being sent by the Nebraska State Patrol during its participation in the “Click It or Ticket” campaign, a national effort to get motorists to buckle up.

The “Click It or Ticket” campaign, beginning today, Monday, May 23 and running through Sunday, June 5, encompasses the heavily traveled Memorial Day holiday weekend.

“As we head toward the first major holiday of the summer travel season, it’s all about saving lives on our roadways,” said Colonel Brad Rice, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “By wearing your seat belt, you increase the odds of surviving a crash by up to 50 percent. We encourage all motorists to put the odds in their favor by buckling up every trip, every time.”

Troopers and communications specialists with the Nebraska State Patrol will put in overtime hours during the “Click It or Ticket” campaign with special emphasis placed on the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The special enforcement is paid for thanks in part to a $28,390 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).

Colonel Rice said, “We encourage motorists to partner with us as we work to have a safe summer travel season. Please do your part and always buckle up.” ###
