NSP continues safety education to reduce teen crashes

LINCOLN, Neb. - The Nebraska State Patrol continues efforts to educate youth on safe driving. Troopers throughout Nebraska conducted 60 safety presentations from July through September, with a focus on seat belts and teen drivers. The presentations included the Rollover Simulator, Seat Belt Convincer, and Driving Simulator, reaching roughly 97,000 people with the message that seat belts save lives.

 From October through December, the patrol will continue education efforts utilizing grant funding from the Nebraska Department of Transportation Highway Safety Office.

According to the Nebraska Strategic Highway Safety Plan, teen drivers ages 16-20 represent the highest  number of unbelted fatalities. More than half of young drivers involved in a fatal crash were not wearing seat belts, with males representing 68% of young, unbelted drivers.

Those interested in scheduling a safety presentation can visit the Community Policing/Safety Programs page of the NSP website for information.
