Henderson, Nev. – Henderson Police have concluded an enhanced traffic enforcement effort designed to make roadways safer through increased patrol saturations specifically checking on seat belt use by drivers and their passengers during contact for other traffic violations.

Police Officers ticketed six motorists after being stopped for other violations during the three week Click It or Ticket enhanced enforcement period.

The enhanced enforcement was part of the most recent statewide Joining Forces initiative that ran from May 10-31.

Officers made 334 traffic stops and issued a total of 314 citations to motorists, including 238 citations for speeding violations, 30 citations for registration and insurance violations and 11 citations for operating a motor vehicle while using a cell phone.

This was the 13th Joining Forces event under the current grant.

The Henderson Police Department received $203,700 in federal funding through the Nevada Department of Public Safety - Office of Traffic Safety for the 2017 Joining Forces program. The grant provides funding for enforcement and education to reduce deaths and injuries on Nevada roadways. Enforcement events during the year will focus on pedestrian safety, seat belt use, speeding, distracted driving and impaired driving.
