State Patrol to begin “100 days of summer”

Reducing the number of fatality crashes on Nebraska roads is the motivation behind the Nebraska State Patrol's “100 Days of Summer” Initiative.

In its fourth year the “100 Days of Summer” Initiative provides motorists an opportunity to view planned NSP enforcement activities. Each day, beginning with the Memorial Day weekend and continuing through Labor Day, the Nebraska State Patrol Field Services Division will work to hold at least one traffic safety enforcement operation somewhere in the state.

“Fewer people are being killed in traffic crashes on Nebraska roads,” said Colonel David Sankey, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “As we head into the busy summer travel season we are again asking motorists to partner with us to save lives by wearing their seat belts, obeying the posted speed limit and never driving impaired or distracted.”

Travelers can visit the Nebraska State Patrol website at www.statepatrol.nebraska.gov and click on “NSP Enforcement Activities” in the Quick Links box on the upper right hand side of the home page. The link will display monthly calendars, with each day listing the type and location of the planned special enforcement efforts.

Colonel Sankey said, “We want everyone to have a safe enjoyable travel experience.”
