Nebraska State Patrol ramps up 100 days of summer initiative PDF Print E-mail

The Nebraska State Patrol is once again encouraging motorists to become partners in an effort to help reduce the number of fatal crashes on Nebraska roads during the heavily traveled summer months of May, June, July and August.

Each day from May 30 (Memorial Day weekend), through Sept. 6 (Labor Day), the Nebraska State Patrol Field Services Division will work to hold at least one traffic safety enforcement operation somewhere in the state.

“It is the goal of the initiative to help drive down the number of fatal crashes experienced during the summer months,” said Colonel Bryan Tuma, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “By publicizing our enforcement efforts, we are encouraging voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws.”

This is the third year for the “100 Days of Summer” Initiative. Motorists 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 Tuma said, “We encourage motorists to travel safely by avoiding distractions, obeying the posted speed limit, wearing seat belts and never driving impaired.”
