APD Steps up Enforcement of Seatbelt Laws
We all know the cheapest, easiest and quickest way to reduce traffic crash injuries is to wear your seatbelts. According to the Nebraska Department of Transportation—Highway Safety Office, last year 116 of the 175 fatally injured passenger vehicle occupants were not wearing safety belts.
The Alliance Police Department, in conjunction with the Highway Safety Administration, will be participating in the 18th straight “Click it or Ticket” Mobilization taking place May 20 to June 2. Additional officer will be working overtime during these dates to ensure seatbelt compliance. A recent visual survey of one hundred motorists within the city of Alliance showed only a 66 percent total adherence to our state seatbelt laws.
Remember to “Click it or Ticket.”
