Police taking impaired drivers off the streets

Posted: Updated:

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are teaming up with law enforcement from all over Southern Nevada hoping to get impaired drivers off the streets. Saturday night they set up a sobriety checkpoint at Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard.

Police say their goal is to keep drunk or impaired drivers off the roads during the holiday season, a time where more people tend to get behind the wheel while impaired.

Drivers who appear to be under the influence are given field sobriety tests, followed by breathalyzer tests or blood draws if necessary. Drivers found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol could be arrested for DUI.
