Enforcement measures are helping, and auto accidents and injuries from Las Vegas to California on Interstate 15 have seen a marked decrease, but the number of fatalities from accidents has stayed the same. This is the latest word from Nevada Highway Patrol following a joint special enforcement focus from the NHP and their counterparts in California meant to curb the growing trend of deadly incidents. According to recent tallies of these Southern Nevada car accidents on this stretch of road there has been a 62% decrease in overall crashes since this enforcement focus started. There has also been, to go along with this, a 44% decrease in injuries resulting from these incidents. However the number of fatalities, five, is the same as the previous total over the same stretch of time before the enforcement began, namely one year.

A big part of the enforcement has been issuing speeding tickets in Nevada and California on this route, as well as ticketing just about any other infraction police catch you doing, like texting and driving, driving recklessly, drunk driving, you name it.
