NHP keeps watchful eye on the 4th

The Nevada Highway Patrol will be increasing staffing levels on July 4th holiday with a larger contingency of troopers planned.

In an effort to reduce our alcohol-related calls for service this holiday season, we are asking everyone to plan their festive celebrations safely and responsibly. If you plan on consuming any amount of alcohol, don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle and drive. Plan ahead and identify a safe and sober person in advance to get you home safely; not the person in your group who has consumed the fewest drinks. If you see an impaired driver on the highway, please report it to us by dialing *NHP (*647) from your cell phone or (775) 687-0400. Those calls will be answered directly by one of our dispatchers.

Remember to be patient and courteous when driving and make our highways safe for all of us to travel on.

Trooper Talk is presented by the Nevada Highway Patrol, Fallon District Office.
