35 Drivers Removed From Road in Click It or Ticket Campaign

 

November 28, 2017 (lincoln, Neb.)  — Many thousands of drivers were on the road over the
Thanksgiving holiday and Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) were running a special
Click It or Ticket enforcement in conjunction with many other law enforcement agencies across the
state.

 

The operation ran from Monday, November 20, to Sunday, November 26, in all NSP Troop Areas.
During the enforcement, Troopers made contact with nearly 5,000 drivers for various reasons. The
campaign was designed to promote seat-belt usage for all motorists.

 

A total of 33 drivers were removed from the road for Driving Under the Influence, with another
two removed for Drugged Driving. Troopers also issued citations for Speeding (1,175), Driving
Under Suspension (58), Open Container (29), No Proof of Insurance (30), No Seat Belt (78), and
Improper Child Safety Restraint (10), among other violations. Troopers also assisted 213 motorists
in need of help on Nebraska’s roads.

 

“The holidays make for a major travel season, starting with Thanksgiving,” said Colonel John
Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “All motorists should wear their seat belt and
buckle-up children in a proper car seat. That’s a big step in making sure everyone arrives alive at
their holiday destination.”

 

NSP also made 62 arrests for drug possession, apprehended 14 fugitives, and recovered a stolen
vehicle.

 

The Click It or Ticket enforcement was made possible thanks in part to a grant for $18,000 from
the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office (NDOT-HSO).
