City of Ralston

                "The Heart of the Metro" 
                                Ralston, Nebraska

                                                            "CLICK IT OR TICKET”

The Ralston Police Department will join local and national law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates all across the country for the 2017 national “Click It or Ticket”  seat belt enforcement mobilization, November 20-26, 2017.  The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety has approved an overtime grant of approximately $1,500 for the Ralston Police Department to conduct increased patrols during this time frame. 

During the mobilization, officers will be focusing on motorists who fail to wear their seat belts-both day and night.  The grant will pay for 32 overtime hours for officers to concentrate on traffic enforcement, with special emphasis on stop sign, speeding, traffic signal and child restraint violations.   

Faced with the fact that injury or deaths can be reduced by 45 to 50 percent if seatbelts are used, it is imperative that a concentrated effort toward seatbelt use is aggressively pursued.

High visibility enforcement such as the “Click It or Ticket” mobilization is credited with increasing the national belt usage rate from 58 percent in 1994 to an observed usage rate of 87 percent in 2014 for drivers and front seat passengers. 

The Ralston Police Department is proud to team up with Nebraska Office of Highway Safety in their “Click It or Ticket” campaign.  With this partnership, we are striving to increase safety belt usage in Nebraska from 83.3% to 86.3% by the end of the year.

Law enforcement will be cracking down on Click It or Ticket violators around the clock.  Local motorists should buckle up.  If law enforcement finds you on the road unbuckled anytime or anywhere, you can expect to get a ticket-not a warning.  No excuses and no exceptions.

Remember this November 20th to 26th:   It’s “Click It or Ticket.”  Buckle up and encourage your loved ones to do the same.  You’ll save the cost of a ticket and may even save a life.

POC for this release is Deputy Chief Bryan Hanson, 402-331-1786.
