The La Vista Police Department, in conjunction with the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety, will be participating May 20-June 2 in the nationwide “Click It or Ticket” campaign.
In 2012, the overall observed safety belt use rate in Nebraska was 79 percent for drivers and front seat passengers and child restraint use was 96 percent. The goal of this mobilization will be to reach the remaining unbuckled drivers, passengers and children.
Extra officers will be on patrol enforcing traffic safety laws with an emphasis on safety belt and child restraint violations. Costs of the operation are funded through a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
