NSP Encourages Safe Driving as "100 Days of Summer" Ends

September 1, 2017 (Lincoln, Neb.)  — The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) is encouraging all travelers to drive
safely for the final weekend of the traditional summer driving season.

The reminder comes as Nebraska roads saw 17 fatalities in the last two weeks of the month of August.

“These recent fatal accidents have involved a variety of factors,” said Major Russ Stanczyk, Acting
Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “It’s a good reminder for all drivers to pay attention the road, wear
your seat belt, follow traffic safety laws, and never drive impaired or distracted.”

Labor Day Weekend marks the end of NSP’s annual “100 Days of Summer” initiative. Starting on Memorial Day
weekend, Troopers have worked to hold at least one special enforcement operation each day. Those efforts took
place throughout Nebraska with all six troop areas participating. Travelers were invited to view the planned
enforcement activities on the State Patrol website.

“I’d like to thank drivers, Troopers and local law enforcement for their work this summer,” said Stanczyk. “It takes
cooperation from all involved to make Nebraska roads safe. We hope to close out the summer driving season
with a fatality-free weekend.”
