Nebraska State Patrol to step up enforcement of seat belt use during Thanksgiving week


LINCOLN, Nebraska — The Nebraska State Patrol has announced plans for stepped up enforcement to focus on seat belt usage over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The patrol says troopers will work overtime for the special enforcement period, which runs from Nov. 23 through Nov. 29.

Statistics from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety show wearing a seat belt increases a person's odds of surviving a rollover crash by up to 70 percent.

The effort, funded in part through an $18,000 grant from the state highway safety office, coincides with the national "Click It or Ticket" enforcement campaign.
