NSP plans holiday enforcement
June 30, 2017
LINCOLN — The Nebraska State Patrol will put in extra hours in an effort to keep Nebraska roads safe over the July 4th holiday.
Beginning Monday, July 3 and continuing through Wednesday, July 5, troopers and communications specialists will put in overtime hours thanks in part to a $15,960 grant from the Nebraska Department of Roads Highway Safety Office.
“The Fourth of July is a great time to celebrate with family and friends,” said Colonel Brad Rice, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “It’s important that motorists and law enforcement work together to prevent accidents and save lives as traffic increases on Nebraska roadways. Drivers can contribute to that effort by complying with traffic safety laws.”
The special enforcement will include vehicle checks and high visibility patrols across the state with an emphasis on decreasing impaired driving. Motorists are encouraged to wear their seat belts, obey the posted speed limits, pay extra attention in work zones, and never drive impaired or distracted.
