JULY 10, 2024 (LINCOLN, NEB.)  — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol removed from the road 29 impaired drivers during the Independence Day weekend.

“Nebraska roadways were busy over the 4th of July weekend,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “While our troopers were busy on patrol, the vast majority of drivers were making good driving decisions and doing their part to keep the roads safe. As the summer continues, we urge all drivers to watch their speed, wear their seat belt, put their phone down, and always drive sober.”

In addition to the 29 arrests for driving under the influence, troopers issued citations for speeding (592), driving under suspension (32), open alcohol container (16), no seat belt (18), improper child restraint (12), and minor in possession of alcohol (10). Troopers also assisted 172 motorists in need of help on Nebraska roadways.

This effort was made possible thanks in part to grant funding from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office. The campaign ran from July 3 – July 7.
