Nebraska Roadway Safety Act

Jan 24, 2014

The Nebraska Roadway Safety Act, LB807, was introduced into legislature by Senator Harms of Scottsbluff to update and improve key traffic safety laws for Nebraskans. The act will:
  • Change safety belt law from secondary enforcement to primary and require all passengers to buckle-up including children.
  • Change texting law for all drivers from secondary enforcement to primary 
  • Change provisions of the Graduated Driver's License Law from secondary enforcement to primary.  
  • Ban the use of cell phones by school bus drivers when the vehicle is in motion.
hearing for this bill is scheduled before the Transportation and Telecommunications Committee on Tuesday, January 28 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 1113 of the State Capitol.   Please show your support of the Nebraska Roadway Safety Act by taking action today.   The Nebraska Roadway Safety Act has the opportunity to impact the quality of life for all Nebraskans. Passing sound legislation around motor vehicle safety can save lives, prevent disabling injuries and reduce the economic burden on Nebraska citizens due to motor vehicle crashes.
