To clear roadways faster while the troopers are still conducting a crash investigation, the Nebraska State Patrol has opted to launch a new drone program.
Drone program launched by Nebraska State Patrol
Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol, colonel John Bolduc said that they had started a drone program to help with accident investigations so that roadways can be cleared faster, allowing traffic to move through. This will save time and money for travelers and the trucking industry while hopefully also reducing the chance of follow-up accidents.
The drones enable the investigators to complete crash investigations in less than half the time it would have taken with traditional methods, reports KSCJ.
The Nebraska State Patrol currently has 19 drone pilots with Part 107 certificates available throughout the state of Nebraska.
