Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol removed from the road 12 impaired drivers as part of a special enforcement effort around St. Patrick’s Day. 

In total, troopers arrested 12 motorists for driving under the influence. Troopers also issued 144 citations for speeding, 9 for open alcohol container, 7 for minor in possession of alcohol and 8 for driving under suspension.

NSP’s effort was made possible thanks in part to grant funding from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office.

As spring arrives and busier travel seasons approach, NSP reminds all motorists to help keep Nebraska roads safe. Always drive sober, follow posted speed limits and traffic safety laws, avoid distractions, and wear your seatbelt. Troopers will participate in many additional traffic safety initiatives throughout the spring and summer months.
