Police arrested, ticketed multiple drivers during DUI enforcement

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Officers arrested nine drivers on DUI charges during a big enforcement effort which targeted impaired drivers.

Over a three week period, which ended on Jan. 5, Henderson Police officers, along with the Metro and Mesquite Police agencies used “saturation patrols” to search the area for drunk drivers. Officers also issued 61 tickets to drivers who were speeding, HPD said.

There were seven citations given out to drivers who ran red lights, and a number of tickets were given to drivers who didn't have insurance, drove on a revoked, suspended or expired driver's license, or drivers that didn't have the right vehicle registration.

Last year, 285 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes on Nevada roadways. Alcohol was a contributing factor in 74 of those deaths, according to the Nevada Department of Public Safety – Office of Traffic Safety.

Sen. Reid optimistic of recovery despite lost eyesight

Twitter/@SenatorReid

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Harry Reid says he's on the mend despite injuries from an exercise accident that has taken away the vision in his right eye.

The Nevadan is the top Democrat in the new GOP-controlled Congress and is recovering from broken ribs and bones in his face after a resistance band broke last week and sent him barreling into cabinets at his new home last week. He said blood in the eye has harmed his vision but that he's hopeful of recovering it.

Reid has had to skip work this week but says he's eager to return to the Senate to fight GOP legislation that would permit construction of the Keystone XL pipeline project.

The 75-year-old Reid is up for re-election in 2016 and he's given every indication that he's running.
