Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- With so many people on local roadways for the Labor Day holiday, police are stepping up enforcement to keep us safe.

Over the long holiday weekend, several sobriety checkpoints have been in place in busy areas around town.

"It is an opportunity for officers and troopers to get right up talking to those drivers and smell alcohol," said NHP Trooper Chelsea Webster.

Troopers said they've had a lot of officers volunteering to help keep the roads safe.

Officials will not have the total number of arrests until the end of the long weekend.
