Extra Nebraska State Patrol troopers will be out this New Year’s Eve to make sure drunk drivers are off the roads. This is an effort funded by a grant to keep drunk drivers off the road. The effort started on January 4th.
Anyone who has witness a drunk driver is asked to call star 55 from a cell phone or 1-800-525-5555 from a landline. Patrol officials are worried that winter driving conditions is already a challenge and adding alcohol on top of that could be extremely hazardous. The extra enforcement wraps up New Year’s Day.
