Officers Make Contact with 80 Drivers in Game Day Enforcement


Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol made contact with more than 80 motorists during special enforcement efforts before and after the Saturday NU-Penn State Game.

Two citations were issued for driving while intoxicated, 38 citations and warnings were given for speeding and three were issued for failure to wear a seatbelt.

The special enforcement designed to help ease traffic congestion and reduce the potential for injury crashes was the second in a series of special efforts planned for the remaining Husker home games.

Traffic enforcement will also be conducted during the Saturday NU-Minnesota game.

The additional enforcement is paid for thanks in part to a $6,570 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
