Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine Results Announced

July 25, 2017 (Lincoln, Neb.)  — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) issued nearly 1,200 citations
and warnings for speeding during last weekend’s three-day “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine” enforcement effort.

NSP, along with troopers in five other Midwestern states cooperated to run the operation from July 21-23 as a
regional effort to stop speeding drivers. State highway patrols in Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas
also participated in “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.”

“High visibility efforts like ‘Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine’ are important to remind drivers that troopers are on the
road to enforce posted speed limits,” said Major Russ Stanczyk, Acting Superintendent of the Nebraska State
Patrol. “This was a deadly weekend on Nebraska roads with four people losing their lives. We encourage all
drivers to voluntarily comply with traffic safety laws to help make our roads safer.”

During the enforcement, NSP Troopers issued 1,191 citations and warnings for speeding. Troopers also arrested
19 people for Driving Under the Influence. Citations or warnings were also issued for Driving Under Suspension
(18) and No Seat Belt (74).

The four fatality accidents occurred in: Butler, Dawson, Dodge and Kimball Counties.
