The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Traffic Bureau along with Officers from the East area commands will be conducting a “Spooktacular Sobriety Checkpoint” on Thursday.
The Traffic Bureau also will be putting DUI saturation patrols out this weekend. These events will focus on both drug and/or alcohol impaired drivers in the hope of reducing the impact of impaired drivers during this haunting weekend.
The checkpoint will be conducted between 7 p.m. Thursday and 3 a.m. Friday. The location will be in the Convention Center Area Command, which has shown to be a high-traffic area for accidents and impaired drivers.
The checkpoint will focus on identifying drug- and alcohol-impaired drivers to include juveniles, young adults and older adults, before they get involved in a collision, thereby increasing the safety for all Southern Nevada motorists.
This event symbolizes the commitment of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department toward reducing the number of DUI incidents and decreasing the number of alcohol related traffic collisions as well as alcohol related traffic fatalities.
