LINCOLN, Neb. -- The Nebraska State Patrol released Tuesday that they have completed their Stop Speeding Before It Stops You campaign with more than 70 citations for people speeding 100mph or more. 

The NSP said the effort ran from July 20 through Aug. 14, and was designed for increased enforcement and awareness around the issue of speeding on roadways across Nebraska. 

During the entirety of the campaign, NSP troopers were reported to have issued more than 1,700 speeding citations across the state. 

NSP said that 72 of those traffic stops were for drivers speeding at or above 100 mph. Another 364 drivers were cited for speeding between 90 and 99 mph. 

“Schools are back in session across most of the state and summer vacations are coming to a close,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “Whether traveling on the interstate or in a school zone, it’s critical to watch your speed to keep others and yourself safe.”

The NSP didn't just give speeding citations, troopers also assisted more than 1,100 motorists in need of help on Nebraska roads during the campaign. 

Troopers made 69 arrests for impaired driving. They also issued 38 citations for open alcohol container, 25 citations for minor in possession, 129 citations for driving under suspension, 78 citations for no proof of insurance, 43 citations for no seat belt, and 16 citations for improper child restraint. 

The campaign was in partnership with hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the country.
