LINCOLN – The “Click It or Ticket” mobilization is a nationwide campaign to promote awareness and increase the use of seatbelts and child restraint systems.
During the period of May 22 through June 2, the Lan-caster County Sheriff’s Of-fice will be participating in the mobilization through high visibility enforcement and saturation patrol.
On Wednesday, May 22, from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m., a high visibility safety check-point will be set up on Highway 6 just west of 98th Street. Vehicles will be selected in a systematic fashion and checked to make sure all the proper documentation is in the vehicle and all occupants are properly restrained. Following the safety checkpoint, the involved deputies will continue enforcement efforts on an individual basis from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m.
Beginning Friday, May 24, through Sunday, June 2, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office will have additional deputies working on nights. These additional deputies will be utilized for saturation patrol to enforce traffic law violations throughout Lancaster County in marked patrol cars from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m.
Overtime for the additional deputies working during the mobilization will be paid through a mini-grant funded by the Nebraska Department of Transportation Highway Safety Office.
