Proposed Nebraska Traffic Safety Legislation

Jan 06, 2014

The "Nebraska Roadway Safety Act," to be introduced in January by Senator John Harms, updates traffic safety legislation.

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.  This includes limiting the number of passengers in the vehicle for young novice drivers, restrictions on night-time driving, and restricting the use of cell phones while driving.
  • Ban the use of cell phones by school bus drivers when the vehicle is in motion.

A press conference sponsored by AAA, National Safety Council, Nebraska and the Nebraska Safety Council is scheduled for January 9, 10:30 am, in Capitol Building Room 1524 to introduce the proposed legislation.
