"Click It or Ticket" Enforcement
The Lincoln Police Department is participating in the National "Click It or Ticket" Enforcement, from May 24th through June 6th, 2010. Officers are conducting enforcement throughout the city, concentrating on areas with high injury accident rates. We will be placing special emphasis on those drivers who are not wearing a seatbelt. We will also be watching closely for child restraint violations. The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety is providing funding for additional officers to assist with this enforcement.
Wearing a seat belt is still the single most effective thing we can do to save lives and reduce injuries on Lincoln's roadways. In 2009, Lincoln Police wrote 4,469 seat belt and child restraint violation citations. Those citations decreased 14% from the total in 2008 of 5,203. Our goal is to continue this trend and help increase Nebraska's statewide safety belt usage rate to 90.6%.
