LINCOLN --  Nebraska State Patrol troopers removed 18 impaired drivers from the road this weekend as part of a special enforcement effort around the Super Bowl. The campaign included numerous law enforcement agencies across the state and entire country.  

In total, troopers arrested 18 motorists for driving under the influence. Troopers also issued citations for speeding (144), minor in possession of alcohol (2), driving under suspension (13), no seat belt (2), and improper child restraint (2). Troopers also performed 63 motorists assists over the weekend.  

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

As 2024 continues, NSP reminds all motorists to help keep Nebraska roads safe. Always drive sober, follow posted speed limits, avoid distractions, and wear your seatbelt. Troopers will participate in many additional traffic safety initiatives throughout the coming spring and summer months.
