LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – NSP announced they will continue their Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign through the New Year to keep roads safe from impaired drivers.

During the first ten days of the campaign, NSP troopers removed 37 impaired drivers from the road. The campaign includes NSP, along with officers and deputies from other agencies across the state.

“As we all look ahead to 2022, let’s close out 2021 in a safe manner on the roads,” said Colonel Bolduc. “Always have a sober driver, watch your speed, avoid distractions, and always wear a seat belt.”

NSP reminds drivers of alternatives to keep the road safe, including sober drivers, rideshares, taxi service, or utilizing the community safe ride program.

Some local businesses offer safe ride programs including AAA Nebraska’s “Tow to Go” program by calling 855-2-Tow-2-Go, which runs through January 3.

NSP has been able to participate in the campaign with a $26,500 grant from the Nebraska Department of Transportation
