LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Local law enforcement agencies are banding together to get drunk drivers off streets and highways in the Las Vegas area.

Back in October, Nevada Highway Patrol and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police launched their DUI Strike Team program with the goal of keeping folks safe.

As of Dec. 22, the team has made over 200 arrests of suspected drunk drivers, according to a map tweeted out by the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety.

The map shows a majority of them happening in the central valley and on the eastside.

All the arrests were made in the past 35 days.
