Las Vegas police target busy southwest valley intersection

During an early September morning in 2012 , four people waiting for a bus were killed and eight were seriously injured when a 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo plowed into a bus stop on Spring Mountain Road, near Decatur Boulevard.

Citing this, Las Vegas police announced an effort to step up enforcement Thursday, from morning to until noon, at the Spring Mountain Road and Decatur Boulevard intersection.

In a “zero tolerance approach,” police said they will be looking for violations such as: unsafe lane changes, yielding-to-pedestrians violations and not following traffic signals.

Pedestrians will also be cited for jay walking, police also noted.
