The Nevada State Police Highway Patrol is partnering with other participating
Nevada law enforcement agencies in the Joining Forces program and is urging
pedestrians and drivers to be aware of each other and to share the road responsibly.
The joint enforcement will begin on June 2

nd through the 24th, 2023. The Joining
Forces law enforcement team will be issuing citations to pedestrians and motorists
who are violating traffic safety laws.
Most people are a pedestrian at least once a day. Between 2015 and 2019, 378
pedestrians lost their lives in pedestrian crashes on Nevada’s roadways. This
represents a 23.6% increase in pedestrian traffic fatalities from previous years. In an
effort to reverse this trend, Troopers will be looking for traffic offenses committed
by pedestrians and drivers alike.
The Nevada State Police Highway Patrol remains dedicated to bringing the number
of fatalities on our roadways to zero through promoting safe pedestrian and motorist
behavior. Whether you are in a vehicle or on foot, stay alert and safely share the
road.
