HANSEN Stall Writer State officials hope to limit the number of illegal fireworks entering Nebraska from Missouri and South Dakota this Fourth of July. The Nebraska State Patrol, however, does not have the personnel to set up road blocks along the borders. to check vehicles for illegal fireworks, said Lt. Richard Reitz, Lincoln. Instead, the state patrol routinely stops vehicles to check their licenses and registration along the Missouri border, Reitz said. Occasionally the stops net a few contraband explosives. Harold Sobotka, assistant state fire marshal, said fireworks larger than a Lady Finger are illegal in Nebraska. All fireworks must be approved before use in Nebraska, he said. If a firework leaves the ground, all particles that return must be cold, Sobotka said. If pieces are hot, smoking or on fire when they hit the ground, the firework is not approved. Bottle rockets, whizzy helicopters and other fireworks that are approved in many states are not legal in Nebraska because they are both a health and a fire hazard, Sobotka said. Once they leave the ground, you have no control of the direc- tion they take, he said. State fire marshal employees do not work as traffic cops, Sobotka said. Instead they work in conjunction with the state patrol, sheriffs departments and local police officers to arrest people with illegal fireworks. Occasionally fire marshal employees will cross the border and observe the purchase of fireworks. If Nebraskans 'Imy illegal fireworks, officials' will communicate with officers across the border who will then stop the car when it crosses into Nebraska. This is a very large problem. There are literally thousands of illegal fireworks being brought in, Sobotka said. . During the Fourth of July weekend, in addition to watching for illegal fireworks, the state patrol also will monitor for speeders on Nebraska 81 and Interstate 80, both of which are designated as Concentrated Accident Reduction Enforcement highways, Reitz said. State patrol officers also try to concentrate patrols around lakes and other recreation areas to stop alcohol violations.
