LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska officials are ramping up their efforts to encourage safe driving from teenagers.

The Nebraska State Patrol says an education initiative will involve safe driving presentations. Officials will use simulators that show people the effects of using a seat belt and what it’s like to be in a rollover crash.

The initiative will begin in April and end in September.

The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety, which is helping to pay for the programming, says nearly 80 percent of teen drivers involved in fatal crashes in Nebraska were not using seat belts.
