City of Lincoln
2007 News Releases
The Traffic Enforcement Unit will be joining in a nationwide “Click it or Ticket” traffic enforcement campaign beginning Monday May 21st which will run in conjunction with LPD’s, “School’s Out” traffic enforcement project.
This combined enforcement effort will begin Monday, May 21st and run through Sunday, June 3rd, 2007. This traffic enforcement project, funded by a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety, allows us to conduct selective enforcement in specific areas throughout the city as well as in school zones. Drivers are cautioned to be aware of the “25 MPH” flashing yellow lights of school zones and obey speed limits around schools.
One in every 23 licensed drivers in Nebraska will be involved in a motor vehicle collision each year. Last year in our Capitol City there were 8,522 accidents in which 2,576 people were injured. The use of safety belts reduce the risk of fatal injury to front-seat passenger car occupants by 45 percent.
