LINCOLN, NEB. (KLKN) – Nebraska state troopers say they removed 35 impaired drivers from the road during their holiday season Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

Troopers also helped 1,349 motorists, the Nebraska State Patrol said on Wednesday.

“This holiday season there was plenty of severe winter weather around the state and our troopers kept busy helping motorists and working to keep the roadways safe,” Col. John Bolduc, superintendent of the patrol, said in a press release.

Bolduc also encourages Nebraskans to make safe driving resolutions for 2023 and beyond in an effort to keep the roads safe.

In addition to the 35 arrests, troopers issued 552 citations for speeding, 14 for no seat belt, six for improper child restraint, 50 for driving under suspension, 15 for having open alcohol containers, and 11 for being a minor in possession. 

The campaign was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Nebraska Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Office.
