The Lincoln Police Department will join in a nationwide “Drug Impaired Driving” mobilization occurring between April 19 and 23, 2023. Officers will be conducting extra enforcement throughout the city on April 20 and 21 to help reduce drug-impaired driving that may occur on these days. The officers working this detail have all received advanced training in drugged driving detection. Drivers are urged to remember that “If you feel different, you drive different” and you face the same legal repercussions for driving high as you do for driving under the influence of alcohol. If you are stopped while driving high, you will get a DUI. The Nebraska Department of Transportation-Highway Safety Office is providing funding for overtime for increased enforcement during this campaign.
