LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Nevada State Police and other local law enforcement are joining forces to apprehend drunk drivers throughout February – and ahead of Las Vegas’ first Super Bowl.

The campaign will last from February 9 – 23 and will focus on finding, investigating, and apprehending persons driving while impaired on Nevada’s highways.

“Each year people across Nevada are killed or injured because someone made the decision to drive impaired,” a joint press release stated. Law enforcement says one of the top contributing factors in these crashes is impairment.

However, police note that impairment doesn’t just mean alcohol, it means anything that affects your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.

“Being a responsible driver is simple: if you are impaired, do not drive,” police noted. “Avoid the chance of making a poor decision that could lead to unnecessary tragedy – plan ahead for a designated driver or public transportation.”
