DUI Checkpoints Announced for Holiday Weekend

Local police plan a pair of DUI checkpoints over the Independence Day weekend.

The Metro Police Traffic Bureau, along with several Officers from Convention Center Area Command and Southeast Area Command, will be conducting a “Sobriety Checkpoint.” It is sponsored by the Joining Forces Grant from the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety.

Officers from throughout Nevada will take part in this event to focus attention on both the drug- and/or alcohol-impaired driver. Special emphasis will be placed on the drugged driver as trained Drug Recognition Expert Officers will be evaluating impaired drivers.  

One checkpoint will be set up from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Sunday within the Convention Center Area Command in the central area of Las Vegas, on Paradise Road just north of Tropicana Ave. Previous checkpoints at this location have been extremely successful in prior years.
