The Nebraska State Patrol made 101 Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) arrests during the most recent edition of the national You Drink & Drive. You Lose anti-drunk driving campaign…which wrapped up its 2-plus week run on New Year’s Day.
Troopers also issued 1,555 speeding citations, 98 driving under suspension citations, and 141 citations for no proof of insurance…as well as 320 seat belt citations and warnings, and 51 child restraint citations and warnings. They also provided assistance to 714 travelers.
The Patrol received a nearly $28,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety to cover the overtime hours of troopers and communications specialists during the holidays and the You Drink and Drive. You Lose campaign.
