"You Drink & Drive. You Lose." Crackdown

To coincide with the nationwide "You Drink & Drive. You Lose." campaign, the Lincoln (NE) Police Department is coordinating specialized enforcement to protect citizens from impaired driving. From August 15, 2014 through September 1, 2014, extra officers will be conducting high visibility traffic enforcement and will take a zero tolerance approach to drivers under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Officers will also be alert for other traffic and safety violations. Funding for this project is provided by the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).

Last year, Lincoln police officers investigated 8,307 traffic accidents, 1,845 which resulted in injury and 5 accidents which resulted in death. Officers also arrested 1,379 drivers in 2013 for driving under the influence.
