State Patrol to crack down on impaired driving|
Beginning this Friday, and continuing through January 1st the Nebraska State Patrol will take part in a nationwide effort to remove impaired drivers from our roadways. The “You Drink & Drive You Lose” campaign utilizes education and enforcement to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving. “Our message is really very simple,” said Colonel David Sankey, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We want you, to be home for the holidays. As part of the “You Drink and Drive You Lose” campaign, troopers and communications specialists will work overtime hours during the special enforcement which encompasses both the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. A nearly $28,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety will help to pay for the extra enforcement.
