LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) State troopers in southeastern Nebraska have gotten a grant to conduct drunken driving checks and high-visibility patrols.
        
Troopers in Saline County will hold the special enforcement this weekend, beginning Friday and running through Sunday in an effort to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatal crashes.
        
The special enforcement effort is paid for, in part, with a $3,100 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
        
Capt. Lance Rogers, based in Lincoln, says the patrol hopes that by increasing its presence, it hopes motorists are reminded to wear their seat belt and avoid driving impaired or distracted.
