Even as the Holiday season slowly fades into memory, DUI checkpoints continue to pop up all across town. This is due to the large amount of fatal accidents that occur here in the valley, all year round. Even though DUI checkpoints like the one on Blue Diamond road have been keeping motorists alert and are helping to stop irresponsible drivers from harming innocent people, unfortunately, there was still an enormous spike in DUI incidents over the past year in Southern Nevada.
In Henderson alone, hundreds of people were injured or killed last year while driving under the influence. Over major holiday weekends, such as Labor Day or New Years, the Henderson police Department sets up key DUI checkpoints, like the one on Blue Diamond road, or a similar check point at St. Rose Parkway and Eastern Avenue, where thousands of drivers are stopped. Police are able to take into custody anyone who is breaking Nevada’s DUI laws at that time.
