These are the worst intersections for crashes in Las Vegas Valley

Updated January 28, 2024 - 8:33 pm

Las Vegas police on Thursday released the names of intersections in the valley with the most vehicle collisions in 2023 and vowed that motorists will receive more scrutiny from cops going forward.

“We have lost a dozen lives on our roads since the beginning of the new year,” the Metropolitan Police Department wrote in a post on X.

“Expect to see increased enforcement of traffic laws throughout our valley,” it stated. “This is your only warning. PLEASE: Slow down, pay attention, and use crosswalks.”

Each of the department’s 10 area commands provided a list of the five intersections in their jurisdictions with the highest number of crashes as of December 2023.

The intersections landing on the lists follow “a common trend” of traffic violations by drivers prior to collisions, including failure to yield the right of way, failure to maintain lane and disregard for traffic control devices, the department stated.

“We need everyone to do their part, both drivers and pedestrians, to help prevent more tragedy and death on the roads,” the department stated in the post.
