Troopers Plan Special Enforcement Around St. Patrick's Day

March 16, 2018 (lincoln, Neb.)  — Nebraska State Troopers will be on the lookout for drunk drivers as part of a special enforcement on St. Patrick’s Day. Troopers will conduct sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols in an effort to reduce the potential for alcohol-related crashes.

 

“St. Patrick’s Day celebrations bring large crowds and easy access to alcohol,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “Many of these festivals take place in areas across Nebraska that already have elevated rates of alcohol-related incidents.”

 

Alcohol has been a factor in 35% of fatalities on Nebraska roads over the past six years. The special enforcement will span the entire state and focus specifically on Saturday, March 17.

 

The operation is made possible by a grant for $9,435 from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office (NDOT-HSO).
