Program to focus on impaired drivers in Carson City

Nevada Appeal staff report

The Carson City Sheriff's Office along with other law enforcement agencies throughout the state, will be participating in Joining Forces through December. The focus will be on impaired drivers.

Grant Funding for this event is provided by the Nevada Department of Public Safety-Office of Traffic Safety. These monies are used to pay for additional deputies who will be out looking for impaired drivers.

Other events that will be held in the future will focus on pedestrian safety, seat belt use, distracted driving, speeding, and impaired driving. The object of these events is to increase safety on our roadways and reduce crashes which can lead to death and injuries.
