LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Drivers beware.

There will be more eyes on you heading to work, school, or wherever else you may be heading behind the wheel. The Southern Nevada Traffic Task Force has declared Wednesday as "Saturation Enforcement" day.

News 3's Elizabeth Donatelli has more just off interstate 15.

The Southern Nevada Traffic Task Force, which is made up of traffic officers from the Nevada Highway Patrol, Las Vegas Metro, North Las Vegad and Henderson, on Tuesday announced plans and objectives when for their latest “Saturated Enforcement” area.

The follow-up to the successful event in April will take place on Wednesday May 15.

The Task Force will move its focus to two identified portions of the Las Vegas Freeway System.Officers will conduct highly visible saturation patrols in two areas within the Las Vegas valley.

The first enforcement zone will be both directions on US 95 from IR15 to Lake Mead Boulevard.

The second enforcement zone will focus on IR15 between Lake Mead Boulevard and Russell Road both northbound and southbound.

Officers will conduct a high frequency of traffic stops in the assigned areas, for any and all hazardous moving violations.

The focus will be on crash causing violations on Southern Nevada freeways.
  • These violations include:
  • Following Too Closely
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe Lane Changes
  • Cell Phone/Distracted Driving
A “zero tolerance” approach will be adapted within the enforcement zones.

The primary goal of the Southern Nevada Traffic Task Force is to increase public awareness toward crash causing violations through highly visible enforcement, and educating the public with help from our media partners.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
