BOULDER CITY - From August 10 through August 21, 2020, Boulder City Police will be Joining Forces with law enforcement agencies statewide to educate drivers of the state’s pedestrian safety laws. Extra traffic patrol deputies are on the roads during the enforcement period. Funding for these extra patrols is possible by a Joining Forces grant received from the Nevada Department of Public Safety/Office of Traffic Safety.

All road users, drivers and pedestrians, need to remember and obey the basic rules of the road that have been put in place to help save lives:

Pedestrians

  • Use intersections and marked mid-block crosswalks only
  • Between dusk and dawn, wear bright clothing or accessories that can be seen at night
  • Continue to look for oncoming traffic until the other side of the road is reached
  • Make eye contact with drivers before stepping into the street

Drivers

  • Obey speed limits and know when conditions warrant even slower speeds, including streets that are not well lit
  • Check intersections and mid-block crosswalks for waiting pedestrians, and yield to them
  • Make eye contact with pedestrians waiting to cross the street

No matter what form of transportation you use, take responsibility for others around you and respect their right to use the road. Make sure that you are predictable, alert, and focused on your safety and on the safety of those around you.

Joining Forces is a multi-jurisdictional law enforcement program aimed at reducing injuries and crashes through statewide enforcement in the areas of: DUI, speed, distracted driving, seat belt and pedestrian safety. The goal of these enforcement campaigns is to save lives by increasing public awareness about the dangers of making poor choices while driving.
