It is reported that over this past Memorial Day weekend, 58 people were arrested for driving under the influence. This is in part due to the five DUI checkpoints established at key locations across the city, as well as the overall increased presence of Las Vegas Metro Police. The good news: because these intoxicated individuals were pulled over and arrested before they carelessly caused an accident, there were zero fatalities over the Memorial Day Holiday due to DUIs.
Metro police stated that their DUI enforcement mission was the largest in the United States. At the five DUI checkpoints, over 15,000 vehicles were stopped and checked for intoxicated drivers! Metro also increased patrols in areas that have shown a significant amount of DUI offenses and other accidents in the past. In addition to the people arrested for DUIs, dozens Las Vegas Traffic Tickets were also issued based on other charges.
