Extra Enforcement Planned for Husker Football

(Lincoln, Neb.)- An increased Nebraska State Patrol presence is planned for Husker home football games during the 2015 season.

Troopers and communications specialists will be working overtime hours during the first three Husker home games (Sept. 5, 12, & 26), thanks in part to a $3,230 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).

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

Traffic volume tends to increase during Husker home games. Fans traveling to and from Memorial Stadium can expect congestion and possible delays and are encouraged to give themselves plenty of time to reach their destination.

Motorists are also reminded voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws will help to keep traffic moving smoothly. Drivers are encouraged to obey the posted speed limit, never drive impaired or distracted and make sure everyone in their vehicle is wearing a seat belt.

511, Nebraska’s Advanced Travel Information System, can be utilized to keep up to date with the latest weather and road conditions. The system can be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year by dialing 511, or through Internet access <http://www.511.nebraska.gov/>.  A Nebraska 511 mobile app is also available to download at no cost for smartphone users. Simply search your App provider for Nebraska 511.

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 by dialing *55 from any cell phone or 1-800-525-5555.  Motorists should report emergencies to 911.
