Nebraska troopers say they arrested 20 impaired drivers over Memorial Day weekend

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Troopers arrested 20 impaired drivers during Memorial Day weekend, the Nebraska State Patrol says.

They also helped 226 drivers throughout the state during the holiday weekend.

“Summer will be full of vacations and holiday celebrations,” Col. John Bolduc said.  “If those events involve alcohol, plan ahead to have a sober driver.  And no matter how far your travels take you, always wear a seat belt.”

Troopers also cited 292 drivers for speeding, 14 for having an open alcohol container and 14 minors in possession of alcohol.

Drivers were cited on suspicion of driving under suspension, having no proof of insurance, not wearing seat belts and having improper child restraints.

This year’s Click It or Ticket campaign continues through this week, the patrol says.

Troopers will continue working overtime to keep roads safe across the state.
