[December 05, 2008]  The Lincoln Police Department concluded the "Click It or Ticket" campaign during the Thanksgiving holiday. From Nov. 26 to 30 the department conducted directed patrols focusing on the fatal five offenses of speeding, DUI, seat belt violations, following too closely and improper lane usage. During these patrols 54 traffic stops were initiated, resulting in 17 traffic citations and 39 written warnings. Of the citations issued, only three were for seat belt offenses.

Traffic citations issued:

  • 3 -- Seat belt

  • 5 -- Speeding

  • 4 -- Uninsured motorist

  • 2 -- Expired registration

  • 1 -- Driving with a revoked or suspended driver's license

  • 1 -- Disobeyed traffic control device

  • 1 -- Illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor

Traffic accidents investigated: 7

Voluntary compliance is the ultimate goal of the "Click or Ticket" campaign. Wearing a properly adjusted safety belt significantly reduces the risk of serious injury. Obedience to all traffic laws is key to keeping to keeping our streets safe!
