NHP Joining Forces With CHP For Spring Break

According to CBS Las Vegas, NHP will be joining forces with CHP for the first time, targeting the highly traveled Interstate 15 corridor between California and Las Vegas. It’s estimated that an average of 45,000 cars enter Nevada on the I-15 corridor from Los Angeles on a daily basis.

This week and next week California and Nevada will be on spring break, so both agencies are expecting heavy traffic. It may be a great week for children and commuters, but it’s extra work for officers with the Nevada Highway Patrol and California Highway Patrol.

According to NHP, this stretch of highway was once considered one of the most deadly stretches of road in the United States. With the collaborative efforts of the two agencies, they’ve managed to reduce the number of fatal crashes along I-15 through enforcement and education. The California Highway Patrol will focus its efforts on the California side of I-15 and will include the use of their fix winged aircraft that measures speed from the air.

As a driver it's so important to be mindful of our speed and driving maneuvers, especially in areas like the I-15 that tend to have heavy traffic. It's also important to keep in mind, if you are ever injured in an accident in one of these areas, to reach out to attorneys to help you recover all of the damages available to compensate for injuries.
