Nebraska officials have kicked off their annual seatbelt campaign to promote roadway safety.
The “Click It or Ticket” campaign began on Monday and will run through June 2.
Nebraska recorded 212 roadway deaths last year, marking the first time the fatality count has increased in the last three years. Gov. Dave Heineman says the number of roadway deaths this year has put the state on pace to see another year of increased traffic deaths.
The campaign involves 62 law enforcement agencies from across the state. It provides more than 12,000 hours of additional traffic enforcement time, with a focus on the use of seat belts and proper child restraints.
The summer also marks the heaviest time for roads projects.
