You Drink You Drive You Lose

You Drink You Drive You Lose

The Fairbury Police Department participated in the nationwide You Drink You Drive You Lose campaign, which ran from Dec. 13 through Jan. 1.

During that time period there was increased patrol.

The extra patrol time was possible through a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS). This grant allowed officers to work extra time in order to increase the enforcement of traffic laws and specifically increase patrol for alcohol violations. The extra time worked by officers will be paid for by the NOHS.

During the enforcement dates 12 citations were issued in Fairbury.

Dec. 9 and 10 and Dec. 13 and 14 found the Art Guild Studio filled with paper, ribbons, boxes and tags all waiting to be used for guests who needed help in wrapping their gifts. Santas helpers, (wearing red hats and cheery smiles) stood ready to pack and wrap. Those helpers were: President Lacey Searing, Jeanette Bangert, Vicki Christ, Audrey Dawes, and Daisy.
