Impaired Drivers Focus of St. Patrick’s Day Enforcement

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. -- The Nebraska State Patrol will be conducting high visibility enforcement efforts over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday in an effort to crack down on impaired driving and reduce the potential for alcohol related crashes.

Troopers and communication specialists for the Nebraska State Patrol will be putting in overtime hours beginning Thursday, March 13 through Monday, March 17. The overtime funding is provided thanks in part to a $15,620 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).

Special enforcement efforts will include high visibility patrols, multi-agency sobriety checkpoints and DUI selectives. For information on specific enforcement activities call your nearest State Patrol Troop Area Headquarters.
