LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska State Patrol is starting a new campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of impaired driving.

They will be joining law enforcement agencies across the state this week in raising awareness of drunken or drug-impaired driving.

Troopers and dispatchers are going to be working overtime across the state as part of the initiative.

The initiative will focus on priority counties identified by the Nebraska Department of Transportation, NSP says.

“Impaired driving increases risk to everyone on the road, not just the impaired driver,” said Col. John Bolduc, superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “Whether that impairment comes from use of alcohol, illegal drugs, or even some prescription medication, it’s critical to never get behind the wheel impaired.”
