   The Papillion Police Department is reminding drivers about the lifesaving benefits of slowing down and watching their speed this summer . The Papillion Police Department is participating in the State of Nebraska’s Stop Speeding before it Stops you campaign , which runs from July 20 to August 14 , 2022 .  
   In a recent press release from the Nebraska Department of Transportation Highway Safety Office said between January 1st and July 15th 136 people have lost their lives in motor vehicle crashes this year . This number is a 16% increase when compared to the 117 who lost their lives during this time in 2021 . Also , as of Friday the 15th the number of fatalities is an increase of 15% over the last five ( 5 ) year average of 118 .
   “We want the act of slowing down and watching your speed to become automatic to all drivers , ” said Lt . Ray Higgins . “It’s not just a safe thing to do – it’s the law . During the Stop Speed campaign , we’ll be working with our fellow law enforcement officers across local and state lines to ensure the message gets out to drivers . In Nebraska , we know that speed exceeding the posted speed limit or driving too fast for conditions , during inclement weather or nighttime , is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes . The total stopping distance for a vehicle traveling 60 mph is longer than a football field ( 100 yards ) ; at 75 mph it takes 1 ½ football fields ( 150 yards ) and that the chance of death doubles for every 10 mph over 50 mph that a vehicle travels . ”
   Speeding drivers can impact our driving behaviors too . If you are near someone speeding , change to the left lane and let them go by . Give those exceeding the speed limit plenty of room . Speeding drivers can tailgate and engage in risky behaviors , use your best judgement and steer safely into the other lane for your safety . Call law enforcement if you believe the driver is a danger to you or others on the roadway – dial *55 on any cellphone .
   “If the enforcement effort wakes people up to the dangers of speeding , we’ll consider our mission to be a success , ” said Lt . Higgins . “If you know a friend or a family member who does not drive the posted speed , please ask them to consider changing their habits” . Help us spread this lifesaving message before one more friend or loved one is killed because of this senseless inaction .
