Kearney Cruise Nite Brings Extra Enforcement



(Kearney, Neb.)- The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP), in conjunction with the Kearney Police Department and the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office, will conduct two nights of special enforcement efforts in Kearney on Friday and Saturday, July 15-16.

The special enforcement, designed to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatality crashes is planned to coincide with the 29th annual Kearney Cruise Nite. The event held Wednesday-Sunday, July 13-17, draws hundreds of classic car enthusiasts together for four days of fun and festivities.

“This is a big event with lots of cars and lots of people and that means the potential exists for traffic congestion and crashes,” said Captain Chris Kolb, Commander Troop C-Grand Island.  “By joining with our allied agencies and making ourselves visible and available we hope to encourage voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws.”

The special enforcement will include high visibility patrols and vehicle checks during the evening and early morning hours of Friday and Saturday, July 15-16.

In 2015, troopers made arrests for driving while intoxicated (1), and issued citations for open container (3), Minor in Possession of Alcohol (2), speeding (47), Driving Under Suspension (3) and No Seat Belt (22).

A $9,125 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS) will help to pay for overtime hours for troopers and communication specialists during the two-night special enforcement. ###
