The Nevada Highway Patrol is teaming up with Winnemucca and West Wendover Police Departments, Humboldt, Lander, Elko, and White Pine County Sheriff’s Departments to educate motorists on seatbelt usage. The Click it or Ticket campaign runs from November 18th through December 5th.
“We expect more traffic on our highways over the holiday weekend, and want everyone to buckle up and stay safe” says Trooper Natalie Hernandez with the Nevada Highway Patrol.
Over 40 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, and most will travel by vehicle. Law enforcement expects more traffic on the road this weekend, especially on Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and Sunday driving home.
So remember, it only takes 2 seconds to buckle up. It could save your life!
“Our goal is ZERO FATALITIES!!”
This Click it or Ticket campaign is funded through the Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety.
“Click it or Ticket” is a national program sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It is the country’s most successful seat belt enforcement campaign ever.
