The Nebraska State Patrol is offering education programs focusing on seat belts and youthful drivers.

Males and females in the 14-20 year old age group represent the highest number of unbelted fatalities in Nebraska, with 56% of young driver fatalities occurring on weekends.

Running through the month of June, Nebraska State Patrol will provide educational programs using several different simulations that demonstrate what happens in a rollover .

“Saving lives is all about voluntary compliance,” said Colonel David Sankey, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We hope, by being able to see what happens in a rollover crash and feel how a seat belt works, more drivers will choose to obey the law and buckle-up."
