Nebraska State Patrol planning on busy holiday weekend

Posted: Updated:
 Holidays are some of the busiest times for law enforcement. Nebraska State Patrol says this Fourth of July weekend will be no different.

Per usual, Nebraska State Patrol will be out cracking down on drinking and driving and any other dangerous activities.

Lieutenant Marty Denton says that there will be even more patrols out than usual, so anyone taking the chance of driving recklessly should be aware.

"This weekend we'll be getting some grant funding that allows for us to have our officers in on their days off to provide more hours of enforcement," says Denton. "Our enforcement focus is going to be on restraints, alcohol, distracted driving."

Denton says having a designated driver if you plan on drinking can save time, trouble, and lives.
