LINCOLN, NE – State troopers in Nebraska have been stepping up efforts to curb drunk driving over Labor Day weekend, according to WOWT.
The push is part of a national campaign that the Nebraska Department of Transportation is taking part in, called “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” Each year in Nebraska, there are an average of 7,000 drunk driving arrests and more than 15,000 alcohol-related crashes.
Authorities are implementing increased traffic enforcement over the holiday weekend, with zero tolerance for impaired driving. The Nebraska State Patrol is among more than 45 agencies working overtime to watch out for drunk drivers.
Passengers in cars, trucks and SUVs, drivers and riders of motorcycles, bicyclists, and pedestrians alike are vulnerable to the negligence of distracted drivers, drunk drivers and uninsured or underinsured motorists.
