Authorities are focusing on seat belt safety in communities near Lincoln.

The headquarters troop of the Nebraska State Patrol in Lincoln says it's conducting an extended special enforcement between January and March that will involve high visibility patrols in Gage, Saline and Otoe counties.

Captain Lance Rogers of the headquarters troop says officials are seeing a high rate of crashes in the area involving drivers not wearing seat belts. He says the enforcement is aimed at raising awareness and reducing crashes that cause serious injuries and death.

The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety is providing a $6,600 grant to help with overtime hours for troopers.
