Avoid DUI in Las Vegas on Halloween
Nothing will ruin a holiday faster than a messy traffic accident. Particularly if you cause harm and suffering to yourself, innocent strangers, your friends and family, or anyone else involved. Las Vegas Metro urges you to make responsible decisions this Halloween holiday, and please, do not get behind the wheel if you have been drinking.
From Sunday October 20th through November 3rd, Henderson officers will be combining their efforts with adjacent jurisdictions in order to look for impaired drivers. Henderson Police Chief Patrick Moers is reported to have stated, “Halloween is one of the business times of the year for child and adult pedestrians to be walking through neighborhoods… We ask [motorists] to stay sober and alert, so that everyone can enjoy the holiday safely.”
Metro is urging anyone who suspects another individual of driving impaired to immediately call 911 and give a vehicle description, location and travel direction of vehicle, and if at all possible—safely report the license plate number.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that approximately 44% of all highway fatalities in the nation on Halloween weekend involve a drunk driver/motorcycle rider. These numbers are staggering and can be lowered drastically by playing it safe rather than sorry.
