|"Click-It-or-Ticket" November 2010|
During the month of November 2010, on five separate dates, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office participated in the “Click It or Ticket” Selective Safety Belt and Child Safety Seat Enforcement, in a coordinated effort to increase the use of safety belts by all passengers and child safety restraints for children. This selective enforcement was conducted during various hours at high traffic areas and areas of high accident occurrences within Douglas County. The enforcement effort was funded through grant funds provided by the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
During the “Click It or Ticket” selective enforcement, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office compiled the following statistical totals:
Our goal with this selective enforcement was to increase awareness of the importance of safety belts and child safety restraint use, and to increase the use of safety belts and child safety restraints statewide. We, as a community, must strive for 100% safety belt and child safety seat compliance.
SAFETY BELTS and CHILD SAFETY SEATS SAVE LIVES! PLEASE BUCKLE UP!
