The Nebraska State Patrol has completed a week-long awareness and enforcement effort focusing on drunk and drug-impaired driving. Troopers and dispatchers worked overtime performing high visibility patrols as part of the effort.

During the initiative, which ran from April 18 through April 24, troopers arrested 15 motorists for driving under the influence of alcohol and 1 motorist for driving under the influence of drugs. Troopers also issued citations for speeding (287), no seat belt (10), improper child restraint (4), open alcohol container (9), minor in possession (13), driving under suspension (42), and no proof of insurance (26). Troopers performed 290 motorist assists throughout the week.

The effort included a focus on both passenger vehicles and commercial motor vehicles. Nebraska State Patrol’s portion to this effort was made possible thanks in part to grant funding from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office.
