Nebraska Patrol Arrests Nearly 80 Impaired Drivers
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska officials say nearly 80 impaired drivers were arrested during a two-week national enforcement campaign. The Nebraska State Patrol says it also issued more than 1,700 speeding citations. More than 95 people were given citations for driving with a suspended license, and another 79 people had no proof of insurance with them. The enforcement period between Dec. 13 and New Year's Day was part of the national "You Drink & Drive, You Lose" campaign. The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety helped pay for the state enforcement with a nearly $28,000 grant. The campaign is aimed at raising awareness of the dangers of impaired driving.
