INTERVIEW | Traffic safety officer talks Thanksgiving week, marijuana impact on DUIs, more

Enjoying a socially-distanced Thanksgiving holiday is one way to help stay safe, but it’s not just COVID-19 that you need to watch out for. According to the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety, so far this year the state has seen 252 deaths on its roadways. One of the main causes of these deadly crashes is impaired drivers. Public Information Officer Andrew Bennett answers the question of marijuana’s role in these DUI crashes — if any — and what needs to happen for the agency to reach its “zero fatalities” goal.
