The Nebraska State Patrol Troop C-Grand Island will conduct two weekends of special enforcement activities in conjunction with the Nebraska State Fair.

During the evening hours and continuing into the early morning hours, on Saturday, August 24 and again on Saturday, August 31, troopers will conduct high visibility patrols in and around Hall County. The special enforcement is designed to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatality crashes.

“With the extra activity, we can expect to see an increase in traffic volume over the next couple of weeks,” said Captain Chris Kolb, Commander Troop C-Grand Island. “We hope putting additional troopers out on the road will encourage voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws and in turn reduce the potential for serious injury or fatality crashes.”

A $1,450 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS) will help to pay for the special enforcement effort. ###
