Area law enforcement will participate in the nationwide “Click It or Ticket” campaign.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Blair Police Department will participate in the traffic safety enforcement project May 20 to June 2.

Both agencies received grants from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.

The objective of the selective overtime enforcement activity will be to reduce the number of traffic crashes and have a direct impact on the number of crash-related injuries during the enforcement period.

The agencies will also be watching for motorists driving without using their safety belts a well as other unsafe driving practices.

Blair officers will conduct saturation patrols in areas which have experience the majority of traffic crashes in Blair, primarily 19th, 13th and Washington streets.
