NSP Encourages Safe Travel this Independence Day Weekend

Nebraska State Patrol Good Life

JULY 2, 2024 (LINCOLN, NEB.)  — Independence Day calls for more than fireworks and freedom. With many people travelling to celebrate the holiday with friends and family, Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol will be working hard to keep Nebraska roadways safe and help motorists in need of an assist.

“Our Nebraska communities are full of amazing Fourth of July celebrations, and we want everyone to be as safe as possible during their travels this week,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “If your party involves alcohol, make sure to plan for a sober driver. Make safe decisions and have a great Independence Day.”

NSP urges all motorists to make plans to ensure a sober ride, such as designating a driver, using a rideshare, calling a cab, or taking advantage of programs like AAA’s Tow to Go, which is available by calling 855-2-TOW-2-GO.

Troopers and dispatchers will be working overtime across the state thanks in part to a grant from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office. The special effort runs from July 3 through July 7.

To report a dangerous driver or to request assistance on the road, call *55 or 800-525-5555 to reach the NSP Highway Helpline and speak with an NSP dispatcher.
