Scotts Bluff Co. Sees Decrease In Alcohol Related Fatalities

Posted: Updated:

Scottsbluff - A three month long series of special enforcements involving the Nebraska State Patrol and the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Office led to a reduction in the number of alcohol related fatalities in Scotts Bluff County throughout April, May and June.

"Through this series of enforcement efforts, we were able to see positive results with zero alcohol related fatalities recorded during the three month period in 2013," said Captain Mike Gaudreault, Troop E Commander. 

"We encourage all motorists to help keep this positive trend going.  Always wear your seat belt and never drive impaired or distracted," he said.

In 2010, Scotts Bluff County recorded two alcohol involved fatalities during the months of April, May and June.  That compares with three alcohol related fatalities in 2011 and one in 2012.

NSP troopers and Scotts Bluff County deputies conducted nighttime vehicle checks and high visibility patrols in and around Scotts Bluff County during the enforcement period thanks in part to a $17,550 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
