Stay focused on the road or pay a fine! The Henderson Police Department announced a 10-day campaign targeting distracted drivers commencing April 12, 2019 through April 22, 2019, and they mean business.
“As part of Joining Forces, a statewide law enforcement program, agencies will work together in an effort to make roadways safer by enforcing distracted driving laws,” Henderson Police Department.
The department has received additional federal funding to employ extra patrol units through Nevada’s Department of Public Safety and will have officers in full force searching for distracted drivers.
Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of accidents in Las Vegas, Nevada, next to drunk driving, and it includes texting while driving, eating while driving, and any other form of distraction that takes a drivers attention away from the roadway (even while stopped at a red-light!) The penalties assessed can begin at $250 immediately, and even more for second and third time offenders.
