Police to Increase Patrols Nevada Day Holiday Weekend

Posted: Updated:

If you're planning on celebrating Nevada Day, be sure to do so safely.

Local law enforcement is increasing patrols and setting up checkpoints in an effort prevent drunk driving.

"Don't leave your family there wondering where you're at, don't leave your loved ones wondering why you did the things your did," says Sparks Sgt. Jeanmarie Walsh.

The Sparks Police Department, Nevada Highway Patrol and Washoe County Sheriff's Office are all teaming up to look for drunk drivers Friday through next weekend.

Along with being dangerous, police say getting a DUI can also cost you thousands of dollars.

It's much cheaper -- and safer -- to simply take a cab or have a designated driver.
