Henderson , Nev . – ( June 2 , 2022 )
The City of Henderson Police Department starts an enhanced traffic enforcement initiative targeting distracted drivers beginning June 3rd through June 20th , 2022 .
As part of Joining Forces , a statewide law enforcement program , agencies will work together in an effort to make our roadways safer by enforcing distracted driving laws .
Nevada law forbids drivers from using a cell phone or other electronic device at any time while their vehicle is in operation , even when stopped at a red light . Drivers can use a hands - free headset or Bluetooth to make calls while driving . However , talking on the phone should not divert their attention from driving safely .
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration , distracted driving encompasses three main types of distraction:
• Visual – taking your eyes off the road
• Manual – taking your hands off the wheel
• Cognitive – taking your mind off what you’re doing
When texting or talking and driving , all three distractions take place , which not only endangers the person committing the violation but endangers everyone around you .
Set your device with an auto response , “Sorry I’m driving , but I’ll get back to you as soon as possible” , and stay alive to reply .
The Henderson Police Department received $237 , 300 in federal funding for the enhanced enforcement through the Nevada Department of Public Safety – Office of Traffic Safety for the 2022 Joining Forces program .
