UPDATE – April 24, 2013 – The three week Henderson Police Department enforcement effort, targeting red light runners and cell phone users, ended Friday, April 19, and the results are in. 520 tickets were written for running red lights during this three week enforcement effort, with another 132 tickets issued for cell phone violations.
Tickets were also written for registration, license and insurance card violations. These are known as “fix-it” tickets, meaning that once evidence is shown that there was, in fact, insurance in force, or registration issues have been corrected, the charge is dropped.
This enforcement effort beats Henderson PD’s totals for April, when 400 tickets were written.

April 1, 2013 – Henderson police said they weren’t fooling around when they dished 400 driving citations in March, and the police department said on Monday it won’t be fooled with its enforcement set to begin April 1.
According to Henderson PD, enforcement efforts are slated to launch targeting drivers who commit behind-the-wheel offenses at intersections.
Police warn plain-clothes officers will watch over busy intersections and radio uniformed officers to pull the drivers over.
The enforcement period is scheduled to go on for three weeks.
Police said red-light runners, those who follow too closely, aggressive and distracted drivers, among many, will be pulled over.
In addition to the driving citations in March, police reported another 230 tickets were issued for drivers talking on cell phones.
The enforcement is made possible through a grant from the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety.
