Posted: 03/06/13 09:23

Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol will put in overtime hours during the Boys State Basketball Tournament, as part of a special enforcement effort designed to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatality crashes Troopers will conduct high visibility patrol on the Interstate and highways leading to Lincoln beginning on Thursday and continuing through Saturday, “State Basketball is a fun and exciting time, but it is also a time when traffic volumes can be extremely heavy on roadways into and out of the Capital City,” said Colonel David Sankey, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “By increasing enforcement and raising awareness, we hope to increase voluntary compliance of all traffic safety laws.” A $9,340 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS) will help to pay for the special enforcement efforts.
