Law Enforcement to Target Area Drunk Drivers

Posted: Updated:
Police are taking extra steps to stop drunk drivers now through the Fourth of July weekend.

As part of the "Joining Forces" campaign, agencies across our area are increasing patrols to spot drunk drivers.

They say nearly one-third of Nevada's fatal crashes involve alcohol, and last year 132 drivers died in related accidents.

Law enforcement is reminding everyone that outside of the deadly consequences, a DUI is also costly. With all court fees and insurance jumps counted, they often cost upwards of $10,000.
