Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol made few contacts in Adams County over the weekend during a special enforcement effort.
"It was a relatively quiet weekend," said Captain Chris Kolb, Commander Troop C-Grand Island. "The goal of any special enforcement is voluntary compliance with traffic safety laws. We appreciate everyone's help in making Nebraska roads, safe roads."
Troopers made contact with 86 people during the two night effort that ran from March 16-17. The Troop reportedly issued three speeding citations and one citation for no proof of insurance. In addition, one juvenile was cited for minor in possession of alcohol, and one citation and one warning were written for violation of the seat belt law.
Across the state, troopers saw a little more action.
Twenty-three motorists were arrested for DUI, over the St. Patrick's Day holiday weekend.
In addition to the 23 DUI's, troopers issued 59 speeding citations, 10 citations for driving under suspension, and seven citations for no proof of insurance.
Six juveniles were cited for being a Minor in Possession of Alcohol, and eight citations were written for open container. Troopers also issued 38 citations and warning for no seat belt, along with five citations for child restraint violations.
High visibility patrol and DUI selectives were held statewide from March 15-17, thanks in part to a $19,040 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
