North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- North Las Vegas police were saturating the roads looking for drunk and impaired drivers this weekend.
Police were out in full force on Saturday night and were out until at least 4 a.m. Sunday.
Even though they were targeting drunk drivers, they said they didn't hesitate to ticket drivers for speeding, running red lights and other illegal actions.
The goal of Saturday's saturation was not only to enforce the DUI laws, but also to educate drivers about the risks involved with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
As the saturation was getting underway, a vehicle went through a stop sign and collided with a North Las Vegas patrol officer.
No one was seriously injured in that crash.
This was part of an ongoing statewide campaign called "Joining Forces."
