Sheridan County Enforcement Results


 August 25, 2016 (Lincoln, Neb.)  —  Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol Troop E- Scottsbluff took two impaired drivers off the road during a month-and-a-half long special enforcement effort in Sheridan County designed to increase seat belt usage and highlight the dangers of impaired driving.

Since 2014, there have been seven fatalities in Sheridan County, all of which involved unrestrained drivers. Of those seven fatalities, four involved alcohol.

“Special enforcement efforts like this one enable us to have an increased presence during the busy summer travel season,” said Captain Jamey Balthazor, Commander Troop E- Scottsbluff. “During the special enforcement effort there were no fatalities recorded in Sheridan County.”

In addition to the two driving while intoxicated arrests, troopers issued citations and warning for open container (6), speeding (129), driving under suspension (9), no seat belt (11), child restraint violation (11). Motorist assistance was also provided to 12 motorists during the enforcement period.

The Sheridan County effort, which ran from July 8, through August 22, was paid for thanks in part to a $7,590 grant from the Department of Roads Highway Safety Office.

Captain Balthazor said, “We want to thank all motorists for helping us keep our roadways safe through voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws. ###
