This week, Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) are participating in Operation Safe Driver Week. Operation Safe Driver is an initiative organized by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA).
State Patrol Public Relations Director Cody Thomas.
Since the first directed health measures were issued in mid-March, Troopers have issued 387 speeding citations for drivers traveling faster than 100 miles per hour, an average of more than 3 per day. During the same time period in 2019, NSP issued 202 such citations.
Thomas says it didn’t help that they couldn’t get into classrooms and talk to students.
The week-long effort runs through Saturday and includes law enforcement agencies throughout North America.
NSP has partnered with members of the Nebraska Trucking Association to assist in speed enforcement. That work includes efforts such as “Trooper in a Truck”. NSP would like to thank the Nebraska Trucking Association for their continued partnership and commitment to encouraging safe driving throughout Nebraska.
