The Kearney Police Department participated in the statewide Buckle Up Every Trip, Every Time campaign from November 22 – November 26. Officers conducted approximately 14.25 hours of traffic enforcement.
During this selective enforcement there were 156 total traffic contacts and 46 citations issued.
There were 6 speeding citations issued, 1 minor in possession of alcohol, 3 driving under the influence arrests, and 1 felony arrests.
Observed seatbelt use increased 1% based on seatbelt use surveys done before and after the campaign.
As always, the Kearney Police Department is requesting that you wear your seat belt and buckle up children.
Kearney’s participation in the Buckle Up Every Trip, Every Time campaign is funded through a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
