[ARCHIVED] 'Click It or Ticket' Campaign to Boost Seat Belt Use

With the start of the holiday travel season, Nebraska law enforcement officials are urging everyone to buckle up.

State and local law enforcement officers will be out in full force as part of the 2013 National "Click It or Ticket" seat belt enforcement mobilization cracking down on motorists who are not belted as well as other traffic violators. While this Click It or Ticket enforcement mobilization runs from May 20 through June 2, officers are enforcing seat belt laws year-round.

According to the U.S. DOT's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 52 percent of the 21,253 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 weren't wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Deaths involving seat belt nonuse are more prevalent at night. According to NHTSA, 62 percent of the 10,135 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 during the hours of 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m. weren't wearing seat belts. In 2011, seat belts saved an estimated 11,949 lives nationwide according to NHTSA.

The Columbus Police Department urges all motorists to 'Buckle Up and Arrive Alive'.
