Nevada State Police Joins Forces to Focus on Impaired Drivers
There’s No Excuse for Driving Under the Influence
The Nevada State Police, Highway Patrol Division, and other law enforcement agencies participating in Joining Forces will be combining resources from March 17, 2022 through March 22, 2022 to apprehend impaired drivers.
Each year, motorists across Nevada are killed or injured because someone made the decision to drive impaired. In 2021, 150 people died on Nevada’s roadways in crashes where impairment either involved or believed to be a factor (number of substance-related fatalities pending for 2021 and could go up). 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.
This Joining Forces campaign reflects the unwavering mission of the Nevada State Police Highway Patrol and its dedication to keeping the public safe by finding, investigating, and apprehending persons driving while impaired on Nevada’s highways.
