Signed by Governor Ricketts on May 5, 2021 and of note to PTAN members is LB616 (Hughes) - Change abandoned motor vehicle provisions

Currently, within 15 days, a tower must notify any lienholder appearing on the certificate of title of the vehicle and the owner once they tow an abandoned vehicle. This bill would require the State Patrol to also follow these guidelines.

Secondly, LB 616 would increase the valuation of an abandoned vehicle from $250.00 to $500.00 for purposes of Nebr. Rev. Stat. 60-1902.

The bill becomes effective 90-days after the end of the Legislative Session, which be approximately September 1, 2021.

Please be on the lookout for an email claiming to be from TRAA requesting gift cards for veterans. The email is coming from a spam email address ( and the scammers have signed it as Joanne Blyton, TRAA President. Several of you have already reported receiving the email.

While TRAA strongly supports veterans, especially the many who are also roadside responders, the solicitation is not coming from us. It is heartbreaking to see scammers using veterans as a ploy to generate goods for themselves. Please mark any email you receive from as spam with your email provider.

As a reminder, any TRAA email will be coming from our official email domain ( If in doubt, always email the office directly for confirmation of authenticity.
