Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - On Wednesday,  the Nevada Highway Patrol will be joining forces with the California Highway Patrol targeting the highly traveled interstate I-15 corridor between California and Las Vegas.

The week of Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year and both agencies want all travelers to arrive safely to their holiday destination.

Both NHP and CHP will concentrate enforcement efforts near the Primm area and St. Rose Parkway. Travelers are reminded from Primm, Nevada to St. Rose Parkway is designated a “Zero Tolerance” zone. Even the most minor traffic infraction will be enforced on this busy holiday week. The goal of both agencies is to increase overall safety and to have zero fatalities on our roadways during this busy holiday week.

The multiple agencies will target speeding vehicles, move over law violators and distracted driving violations, however all traffic violations will be enforced no matter the severity. Motorists will be warned by the DMS electronic freeway signs which will flash the message “Move Over or Slow Down for Stopped Emergency Vehicles” as well as “Entering NHP Zero Tolerance Zone” as a reminder to be safe.

The California Highway Patrol will focus their efforts on the California side of Interstate I-15 and will include the use of their fix winged aircraft that measures speed from the air.
