Every year Memorial Day weekend marks the true beginning of summer. Celebrated by the opening of pools and backyard cook-outs, memorial day seems to be the kick off to a season of outdoor fun and relaxation. It is also starts a dangerous season on our roadways. As traffic increases for summer travel, so do fatal crashes.
Nebraska State Patrol and other Nebraska Law Enforcement Agencies across the state are working throughout this busy summer traffic season to keep our roads safe. The 100 days of summer campaign is their effort to keep Nebraska’s roads safe from memorial day to labor day, through special enforcement efforts. They are working to drive down crash numbers over this summer and make sure we can all relax and enjoy these next few months. Their hard work will keep us all safer as we travel this year. We can all help them out by making good decisions throughout the summer months, making sure to always have a sober designated driver if your plans include alcohol and always wearing your seatbelt.
We here at MADD Nebraska hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend and a fun, safe summer.
