Metro plans 4 sobriety checkpoints over holiday weekend

Metro Police will conduct four sobriety checkpoints through the weekend in an effort to combat drunk driving over the holiday.

The first checkpoint will start at 7 p.m. Friday until 3 a.m. Saturday in the area of Nellis and Lake Mead boulevards.

A checkpoint will be set up in the area of Cheyenne Avenue and Tenaya Way from 7 p.m. Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday.

On Sunday night, Metro will have a checkpoint set up at Charleston Boulevard and Bruce Street, as well as one at Sahara Avenue and Commercial Circle. Both will be conducted between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m.

The checkpoints are coordinated by Metro Police and are funded by a grant from the state.

AAA will have its “Tipsy Tow” program in effect this weekend, which offers a free tow for would-be drivers from 6 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday.
