Authorities Step Up DUI Patrols Across Valley Ahead of Holiday Weekend

Written by: The Law Offices of Garrett T. Ogata

In an effort to deter tragedies on Southern Nevada roadways over the Labor Day holiday and beyond, an increased number of patrol officers and troopers are on the lookout for impaired drivers.

About 300,000 visitors, about half of them making their way to the valley in vehicles over the holiday weekend, should congest traffic, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and transportation officials.

The 17-day law enforcement operation, organized by Nevada agencies through the “Joining Forces” campaign, began Sunday, according to Metro Police.
