Lead-footed drivers beware: Police out in force today

If you’re speeding or talking on a cell phone today on U.S. 95 or on Interstate 15, don’t be surprised if you get stopped and ticketed.

Officers with the Southern Nevada Traffic Task Force will be out in force today writing tickets for hazardous moving violations, including following too closely, speeding, making unsafe lane changes and using cell phones. And, officials said, they will be taking a zero-tolerance approach.

The effort is an attempt to raise awareness of what causes crashes on Las Vegas freeways.

Police will focus on both directions of U.S. 95 from I-15 to Lake Mead Boulevard and on I-15 between Lake Mead Boulevard and Russell Road.

The task force is made up of traffic officers from the Nevada Highway Patrol and Metro, North Las Vegas and Henderson police.
