Click It or Ticket checkpoint, runs through today

The ‘Click It or Ticket’ mobilization is a statewide campaign to promote awareness and increase
the use of seatbelts and child restraint systems. The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office will be
participating in the mobilization through high visibility enforcement and saturation patrol.

On Wednesday, November 21, 2018, from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., a high visibility safety
checkpoint will be set up on Hwy 34 just west NW 31st Street.

Vehicles will be selected in a systematic fashion and checked to make sure the safety equipment is working properly, all the proper documentation is in the vehicle and that all occupants are properly restrained.

Following the checkpoint, from 8:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., deputies from the Lancaster County
Sheriff’s Office will continue the mobilization efforts through saturation patrol. Additional
deputies, in marked patrol cars, will monitor traffic on an individual basis watching for traffic
law violations.

Overtime for the additional deputies working during the mobilization will be paid through a
mini-grant funded by the Nebraska Department of Transportation Highway Safety Office.
