Law Enforcement to Continue Joining Forces Program After Holidays

The holidays might be over, however, police officers’ effort to reduce impaired driving is not. Law enforcement will join forces and continue its high-intensity enforcement effort between Jan. 16 and Feb. 2.

Officers will be out in force on roadways across Nevada looking for motorists who are driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Last year, 284 fatalities were reported in Nevada, 18 more than in 2013.  Of those fatalities, 74 deaths were ruled to be alcohol-related.

Even though the holiday celebrations have wrapped up, the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety reinforces the importance of designating a sober driver and avoiding driving impaired. Alternatives include taking taxis, staying overnight or calling a friend for a ride home.
