Law enforcement agencies from around southern Nevada will be combining forces in hopes of making roads safer.
The Southern Nevada Traffic Task Force announced Tuesday plans for a saturated enforcement area along two stretches of freeway in the Las Vegas valley.
Officers from the Nevada Highway Patrol, Metro Police, North Las Vegas and Henderson Police will be out in force Wednesday, patrolling along U.S. 95 from the Spaghetti Bowl to Lake Mead Boulevard and along I-15 from Lake Mead Boulevard to Russell Road.
Officers will be looking for drivers who are following to closely, speeding, changing lanes unsafely, using a cell phone or driving while distracted.
"We are going to take on a zero tolerance mentality with all of our officers, which are going to be patrolling throughout this area, looking for the different violations which we have noted to be accident causing," NHP trooper Loy Hixson said.
