DUI enforcement still a major priority, despite dismantling of valley's dedicated strike team

The way major valley agencies are tackling the issue of DUI driving is changing, following the end of the multijurisdictional effort known as the DUI Strike Team. There have been a growing number of DUI crashes in the valley. The big question is what is being done to stop the problem, especially now that the DUI Strike Team no longer exists? The DUI Strike Team was a joint effort between Metro Police and Nevada Highway Patrol. It was also supported by the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety. The goal was to stop impaired drivers behind the wheel by being out on the streets. Even with it now gone, 8 News Now has learned the work from each participating agency continues.
