State Patrol To Work Overtime July 3-5, Keep Nebraska Roads Safe

NORFOLK – Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol began working overtime during a three-day period for the Independence Day Enforcement.

According to a release from NSP, they’ll be looking to keep drunk drivers off the road during the days surrounding Independence Day.

Along with numerous law enforcement agencies across Nebraska, troopers will be working together to reduce the potential for serious crashes related to drunk driving. NSP’s effort will run from Tuesday, July 3 through Friday, July 5 and include troopers in all areas of Nebraska.

The 4th of July is one of the busiest travel times of the summer as the Nebraska State Patrol is asking everyone to work together to keep Nebraska roads safe celebrating Independence Day.

This effort is made possible thanks in part to a grant for $16,930 from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office (NDOT-HSO).

The operation will include saturation patrols and vehicle checkpoints on roads in and around counties identified by NDOT-HSO as priority counties because of their high incidence of crashes that result in personal injury or death.

Any motorists in need of assistance can dial *55 from a cell phone to reach the NSP Highway Helpline.
