Husker Football Special Enforcements

 

 September 27, 2016 (Lincoln, Neb.)  — The Nebraska State Patrol will continue its special enforcement efforts during the remaining four Husker home football games.

During the first three UNL home football games special enforcement efforts designed to ease traffic congestion and reduce the potential for serious injury and fatality crashes resulted in citations and warnings for speeding (119), Driving Under the Influence (1), Driving Under Suspension (1), and No Seat Belt (2). In addition, motorist assistance was provided to two drivers. 

“We had a few chain reaction rear-end crashes during these first home games,” said Captain Lance Rogers, Commander Headquarters Troop-Lincoln. “With increased traffic volumes we would encourage all motorists to increase their following distance and be prepared to stop should congestion occur.”

Troopers and communication specialists with Headquarters Troop-Lincoln will work overtime hours during the remaining four Husker home games (Oct. 1, 22, & Nov. 12, 19), thanks in part to a $4,380 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.

The Nebraska State Patrol Aviation Support Division will again be in the air assisting troopers and providing traffic reports before and after the games.

Motorists are reminded that traffic volume increases during Husker home games. Fans traveling to and from Memorial Stadium can expect congestion and possible delays and are encouraged to allow plenty of time to reach their destination.

Voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws will help to keep traffic moving smoothly. Drivers should buckle up, obey the posted speed limits, and never drive impaired or distracted.

Anyone who observes a reckless driver or anyone in need of non-emergency roadside assistance can call the Nebraska State Patrol Highway Helpline when safe to do so at *55 from their cell phone or 800-525-5555 from any landline. Motorists should report emergencies to 911. ###
