The checkpoints will be conducted from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday. DUI saturations patrols will be out the rest of the weekend. The location selected for these checkpoints and saturation patrols will be in the Las Vegas Valley in areas that have consistently shown to be high traffic areas for accidents and impaired drivers.
