Expect to see more police at valley’s busiest intersections

Metro Police will be swarming around busy intersections throughout the Las Vegas Valley for the next three weeks starting today as part of an initiative to improve traffic safety.

Police will be stationed at intersections that have been known to have a high frequency of collisions such as Charleston and Lamb boulevards, and Decatur Boulevard and Flamingo Road.

Police said the focus is on catching motorists speeding, running red lights, using cellphones and committing other accident-causing traffic violations. The goal is to increase traffic safety awareness and reduce car accidents.

The program is part of the Joining Forces Grant from the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety, police said. Officers from Nevada Highway Patrol, Henderson Police, North Las Vegas Police and Mesquite Police departments will also be assisting in the enforcement.
