NHP joins forces to focus on impaired drivers

The Nevada Highway Patrol and other law enforcement agencies participating in Joining Forces will be combining resources from Oct. 12 through Nov. 2, to apprehend impaired drivers.

Each year, motorists across Nevada are killed or injured because someone made the decision to drive impaired. In 2018, 133 people died on Nevada’s roadways in impaired driving crashes.

Impaired driving doesn’t mean just alcohol; it is anything that affects your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Being a responsible driver is simple: if you are impaired, do not drive.

Whether it’s a designated driver or public transportation, everyone should make sure they have a plan in place to avoid any chance of making a poor decision that could lead to unnecessary tragedy.
