Over 400 Cited During "Click It Or Ticket"

Lincoln, NE~~Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol issued 462 seat belt citations and warnings for violation of Nebraska’s seat belt law during the “Click It or Ticket” mobilization. A total of 55 child restraint citations and warnings were also issued. The “Click It or Ticket” nationwide campaign, which ran May 19- June 1, encompassed the heavily traveled Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Nebraska’s seat belt law is a secondary law. Drivers can be cited for this violation only if stopped for a separate offense. Violating Nebraska’s Seat Belt law carried a $25.00 fine, for each offense.

Troopers and Communication Specialists put in overtime hours as a part of the “Click It or Ticket” campaign thanks in part to a nearly $28,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).

The following statistics reflect statewide activity by the Nebraska State Patrol during the “Click It or Ticket” enforcement.
