NSP will be out in full force for the holiday

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska State Patrol will be monitoring state highways and conducting two special enforcement's this holiday season to keep motorists safe.
 
The "Be Here for the Holidays" and "You Drink, You Drive, You Lose" campaigns will run concurrently until the new year.

Extra troopers will be out on patrol and setting up scheduled and unannounced checkpoints around the area.

The two enforcement's will be focused on tracking down impaired drivers, as well as seeking voluntary compliance of traffic laws.
 
"We do this as an effort to have an enforcement effort going on each and every day all the way through the holidays so we can try to achieve voluntary compliance," said Troop Commander Mike Gauderault. "If the public would like to see where those operations are taking place, go to our website you can look at the calendar."
 
Gaudreault says the roads are usually busier-and more dangerous during this time of the year because of heightened holiday traffic, wintry weather, and an excess of people celebrating.
