Nevada Highway Patrol Southern Command Enforcement Results for New Year’s Eve

Over 615 traffic enforcement stops were made by Nevada Highway Patrol troopers on Southern Nevada highways in a 14-hour period from 7:00 pm last evening until 9: 00 am this morning. Only 48 motorists, or roughly 13 percent, stopped during that time frame were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Many of those motorists stopped were designated drivers for passengers riding in the vehicle who were celebrating the New Year and had already consumed alcohol.

Other calls for service during that same time frame involved assisting 65 motorists whose vehicles had broken down along the highway and 12 automobile crashes were investigated as well. Four of those crashes involved minor injuries and were in the Las Vegas area.
