Troopers Arrest 13 Impaired Drivers During Weekend Campaign


Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol removed from the road 13 impaired drivers, including two drug-impaired drivers, during a special enforcement operation last weekend.

The effort, which ran from April 19 through April 23, included high-visibility patrols throughout the state. During the operation, trooper arrested eleven people for driving under the influence of alcohol and two people for driving under the influence of drugs.

In addition to the arrests for impaired driving, troopers issued citations for speeding (295), driving under suspension (24), minor in possession of alcohol (2), open alcohol container (3), no seat belt (9), and improper child restraint (1). Troopers also performed 184 motorist assists during the campaign.

This effort was made possible thanks in part to a grant from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office.
