NSP's 100 Days of Summer Effort Aims to Reduce Roadway Fatalities


The Nebraska State Patrol will once again be stepping up efforts to reduce fatal roadway crashes with a 100 Days of Summer special initiative.

In its seventh year, the 100 Days of Summer initiative gives drivers a heads up on the planned patrol enforcement activities in hopes of prompting drivers to be voluntarily compliant with traffic laws.

Each day, beginning with the Memorial Day holiday 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, such as checking for seat belt use and impaired drivers.

“On our website we provide a link to some of our special enforcement activities, in turn we ask motorists to do their part by complying with all traffic safety laws,” explained Colonel David Sankey, NSP superintendent.

Interested motorists can visit the Nebraska State Patrol website to access an enforcement calendar. By viewing the calendar, motorists can access information on the type of enforcement planned and the location of the enforcement.

Sankey said, “Help us make this summer travel season a safe one. Follow the rules of the road and remember to always buckle up.”
