November 18, 2016 (Lincoln, Neb.)  — The Nebraska State Patrol joins its law enforcement partners
across the nation in an effort to save lives over the Thanksgiving holiday by participating in the
“Click It or Ticket” campaign.

Beginning Monday, Nov. 21 and continuing through Sunday, Nov. 27, troopers and
communications specialists will put in overtime hours as a part of the seat belt enforcement effort.

“The unfortunate reality is there will be crashes on our roadways,” said Colonel Brad Rice, 
 Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “But, if we make sure everyone, in every vehicle,
is buckled up, and we all follow the rules of the road, not only can we reduce the number of crashes, we
can prevent serious injuries and save lives.”   

During the “Click It or Ticket” enforcement, troopers will concentrate on reducing crash-causing 
behaviors such as speeding, following too closely, and impaired and distracted driving.
A $21,900 grant from the Department of Roads Highway Safety Office will help fund the effort to
save lives on our nation’s roadways.

Travelers are also encouraged to pay special attention to weather and road conditions when
preparing for holiday travel by utilizing 511, Nebraska’s Advanced Traveler Information System
online @ <www.511.nebraska.gov>. A Nebraska 511 mobile app is also available
to download at no cost for smartphone users.

For more information on specific enforcement activities during the “Click It or Ticket” campaign 
contact your nearest Nebraska State Patrol Troop Area Headquarters or view a calendar
of selected NSP Enforcement Activities. ###
