More NSP Troopers On The Roads This Holiday Weekend

38 Nebraska State Patrol Troopers have been added to the normal schedule for this holiday weekend. The patrol received a 15-thousand dollar grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety to help pay for the additional troopers.

The Patrol says it's goal is to have a fatality free weekend. Last year, nine traffic fatalities happened on Nebraska highways during the Fourth of July weekend. In addition to the extra troopers on the ground, they'll have some eyes in the sky with officials monitoring the roads from above.
