[ARCHIVED] Joining Forces to Keep Drivers Safe this Holiday Season

Police Department Traffic Enforcement

BOULDER CITY – The holiday season is filled with love, joy and happiness. Don’t let that spirit get ruined by driving impaired. There is no excuse for driving under the influence, so make plans now and stay safe later.

As Boulder City residents make plans to celebrate the coming holidays, Boulder City Police Department (BCPD) and other Nevada law enforcement agencies ask that you make sure those plans include viable alternatives to driving under the influence.

“Whether it’s a designated driver, rideshare or public transportation, everyone should make sure they have alternatives in place to avoid any chance of making a bad decision that could lead to unnecessary tragedy,” said Boulder City Police Chief Tim Shea. “Make sure you are able to celebrate the holidays safely by keeping the roads safe for everyone.”

As part of the efforts to increase traffic safety and reduce driving under the influence during the holidays, law enforcement is participating in a statewide Joining Forces campaign to heighten enforcement of DUI violations and increase awareness of the dangers of DUI.

From December 20, 2019 through January 3, 2020, the BCPD will dedicate extra deputies specifically to look for drivers under the influence. Funding for these extra patrols is made possible by a Joining Forces grant received from the Nevada Department of Public Safety/Office of Traffic Safety.

The goal of these enforcement campaigns is to save lives by increasing public awareness about the dangers of making poor choices while driving.
