Troopers work overtime to stop drunk drivers

Posted by: KLKN Newsroom

The Nebraska State Patrol has planned special enforcement efforts for Douglas and Sarpy counties in eastern Nebraska.

The patrol says it will have troopers work overtime for the weekend efforts this month, August and September. A grant of nearly $12,700 from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety will help pay for the overtime.

The high visibility patrolling is aimed at taking more drunken drivers off the roads.
