"Joining Forces" Speed/Pedestrian Enforcement Event
Officers with the North Las Vegas Police Department and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will conduct a "Joining Forces" Speed/Pedestrian Enforcement Event. During this event, officers will focus their efforts on drivers who fail to obey posted speed limits, drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and pedestrians who fail to use crosswalks.
Officers will conduct directed patrol on major thoroughfares throughout the City of North Las Vegas concentrating on areas with high vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
The speed of a vehicle involved in an accident can significantly contribute to the serious injury or death of the persons involved, especially pedestrians. By educating both drivers and pedestrians, the Traffic unit hopes to reduce the number of auto/pedestrian accidents that occur.
