Reno Police Join Forces to Focus on Impaired Drivers Over The Nevada Day and Halloween Holiday

10/24/2016

Over the next week, residents can expect to see double the normal law enforcement presence around your area. Reno Police is Joining Forces with law enforcement agencies statewide to crack down on impaired driving, and has an important message for the public: if you’ll be drinking, designate a sober driver, and if you drive impaired, you will be arrested.   

Increasing law enforcement presence during these weeks supports the overall state goal of reaching Zero Fatalities. Reno residents can help us reach that goal by following these safety guidelines: 

  • designate a sober driver before drinking;
  • use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use public transportation if impaired;
  • take advantage of local sober ride programs;
  • call 911 if a drunk driver is spotted on the road;
  • take the keys or assist in making other arrangements for someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired 

Joining Forces enforcement is paid for by Nevada-Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety.
