Click It ot Ticket Mobilization

The Lincoln Police Department is participating in the National 'Click It or Ticket' Mobilization, from May 18 through May 31, 2009. 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 will be 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. Yet, in 2008, Lincoln Police wrote 5,203 seat belt and child restraint violation citations. Those citations increased 7.8% from the total in 2007 of 4,384. Our goal is to help increase Nebraska's statewide seatbelt usage rate to 87.6%.

Reduce your risk with a simple click. Buckle up.
