Nearly 80 Impaired Drivers Taken Off Nebraska Roads During Enforcement Campaign

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska State Patrol says nearly 80 impaired drivers were arrested during a two-week special enforcement effort in December.

Officials said they also issue over 1,700 citations for speeding in addition to citations for driving with a suspended license and driving without proof of insurance.

The national "You Drink & Drive, You Lose" campaign took place from Dec. 13 through New Year's Day and included high visibility patrols, DWI checkpoints and other efforts with a special focus on time periods when alcohol related activities were high.

A grant worth nearly $28,000 from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety helped pay for the state enforcement effort.
