Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol made 79 contacts with motorists during a three-week long special enforcement effort focusing on recreational areas in Lancaster County.

The enforcement which focused on reducing the potential for alcohol related crashes around Lancaster County recreational areas, resulted in two arrests for Driving While Intoxicated , one Open Container citation, six citations for illegal possession of alcohol on the beach and one citation for Minor in Possession of Alcohol. Citations and warnings were also issued for Speeding (6), Driving Under Suspension (1), and Seat belt violation (3).

The special enforcement, which took place from July 25, through August 14, focused primarily on weekends, and was paid for thanks in part to a $3,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
