NSP Completes First Month of Husker Gameday Operations

The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) has completed the first month of special operations related to Husker football home games.

During the first three Husker Saturdays, troopers have worked to reduce the potential for serious injury crashes by providing traffic support both on the road and in the air.

For home games in August and September, troopers arrested two drivers for driving under the influence of alcohol, issued 16 citations for speeding, and assisted 48 motorists.

The special enforcement was made possible thanks in part to a grant for $3,615 from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office.

NSP will continue patrol operations for the next four Husker home games, including radio traffic reports on the Husker Sports Network before and after the game with the assistance of the NSP Aviation Support Division.

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 at 800-525-5555 from any phone. Motorists should report emergencies to 911.
