Sobriety Checkpoint Planned for Friday
Sobriety Checkpoint Planned for Friday

Henderson Police will be part of this weekend's effort to keep the roads safe from drunk drivers.

Henderson Police will be joining forces with Metro, North Las Vegas Police and the Nevada Highway Patrol for a series of sobriety checkpoints throughout southern Nevada.

The checkpoint will be from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday in the area of St. Rose Parkway and Eastern Avenue.

Most people think New Year's is the most dangerous holiday for the roadways; however, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics for 2011, far more fatalities happen over the Labor Day weekend.

In Clark County last year, there were two fatal accidents during the Labor Day weekend and a total of four accident-related deaths statewide.

It is a requirement of Nevada law that the location of a DUI checkpoint be released prior to the date of the event.
