Troopers Participate in National Enforcement

NSP logo(Lincoln, Neb.)- Beginning Friday, August 15, and continuing through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 1, the Nebraska State Patrol will participate in the “You Drink & Drive You Lose” campaign, a nationwide effort to remove impaired drivers from our roadways.

Troopers and communication specialists will put in overtime hours during the enforcement period thanks in part to a more than $27,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).

“Motorists can have a big impact on travel safety during this last holiday of the summer season,” said Colonel David Sankey, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We encourage them to partner with us in our efforts to save lives on our roadways by voluntarily complying with all traffic safety laws.”

Travelers are reminded, to always wear their seat belt, obey the posted speed limit, pay extra attention in work zones, and never drive impaired or distracted.

Impaired or reckless drivers can be reported to the Nebraska State Patrol Highway Helpline when safe to do so by dialing *55 from any cellular phone, or 1-800-525-5555 from any landline. Emergencies should be reported to 911.

Travelers wanting to check the latest weather and road condition report can utilize 511, Nebraska’s Advanced Traveler Information System at < http://www.511.nebraska.gov/" href="http://www.511.nebraska.gov/">www.511.nebraska.gov >, the 511 Mobile Traveler Site at < http://www.ndortraveler.mobi/" href="http://www.ndortraveler.mobi/">http://www.ndortraveler.mobi > or by dialing 511 (800-906-9069) from any landline or cellular phone. ###
