Patrol Kicks Off Be Here for the Holidays Safety Initiative

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

In an effort to reduce serious injury and fatality
crashes during the holiday travel season, the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) is once again
reminding all motorists to “Be Here for the Holidays” by promoting voluntary compliance with
all traffic safety laws.

“Heavy traffic during the holidays is often combined with inclement weather,” said Colonel Brad Rice,
Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “By making motorists aware of our
enforcement efforts we hope to encourage voluntary compliance and avoidance of crash causing behaviors.”

Be Here for the Holidays is a special initiative which includes the posting of times and locations
of selected NSP traffic enforcements across the state throughout the holiday season. A link to the
NSP Enforcement Activities Calendar can be found on the homepage of the NSP Website.

Colonel Rice said, “from our family to your family, we wish you safe travel this holiday season.
Help us help you reach your destination safely. Always wear your seat belt and never drive
impaired or distracted.”
