DUI Strike Force implemented to reduce drunk driver accidents

Drunk driving is a big problem across Nevada, especially in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, drunk driver accidents are happening more and more, so police forces are taking measures to combat this problem. A DUI Strike Force was recently implemented by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department in an effort to keep roadways as safe as possible.

Safety experts say the new DUI Strike Force has made a big impact in the Las Vegas area. According to reports, it has put nearly 300 intoxicated drivers behind bars in the two weeks since being activated. During the recent New Year's holiday, they reportedly arrested a total of 32 drunk drivers in one night.

That night proved eventful, officers said. Reportedly, a suspected drunk driver crashed into a police car while two officers were already investigating a possible DUI accident. The crash injured one officer and badly damaged a police motorcycle, reports said. Officials urge all drivers to be responsible and never get behind the wheel while intoxicated.

Every year, thousands of people are arrested for drunk driving in Las Vegas and across Nevada. With so many transportation options available these days, there is literally no excuse for a person to drive while under the influence of alcohol. Those in Nevada who have suffered injuries or the loss of loved ones in drunk driver accidents could benefit from discussions with an experienced attorney. A successfully litigated claim could result in substantial compensation to help victims and family recover any monetary losses that may have occurred due to a devastating accident.
