The Nebraska State Patrol took 91 drivers off Nebraska roads for driving under the influence during the nationwide “You Drink, You Drive, You Lose”, special enforcement campaign Aug. 16-Sept. 2.
Troopers and communications specialists put in overtime hours during the two week enforcement campaign, thanks in part to a nearly $28,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
Designed to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving, the special enforcement effort encompassed the heavily traveled Labor Day holiday weekend, Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.
