LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Traffic Bureau, along with officers from the Northwest, Enterprise and Bolden Area Commands, will be conducting a “Sobriety Checkpoint” in the west area of Las Vegas.

This event will focus on both drug- and/or alcohol-impaired drivers in the hope of reducing the impact of impaired drivers and impaired related crashes.

The checkpoint will be conducted between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday at Charleston west of Rainbow, 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 LVMPD toward reducing the number of DUI incidents and decreasing the number of alcohol-related traffic collisions as well as alcohol-related traffic fatalities.
