Police arrest 177 drivers on I-15 entering Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Local law enforcement teamed up Wednesday morning to urge drivers to slow down on I-15. The effort focused on a stretch of I-15 at the south end of the valley near St. Rose Pkwy.
SDCC police say officers stopped more than 177 vehicles, including one that was traveling at 120 mph. Police did not release the exact number of tickets issued or the types of laws that were broken.
In a long, colorful Facebook post, CCSD Police explained what their officers, along with other local services, were able to accomplish:
Today, CCSDPD Traffic, in conjunction with the Nevada Bureau of Highway Safety, along with most other valley departments, were on the hunt for a dangerous species, Velocitocious Vehicularity, or VV. #SoundsDangerous#DoesItBite? #SomeHaveNoTooth#It’s Cold#CallItFrostBite
VV can be found in all parts of our great state, country and continent. Its best defense mechanism is the ability to quickly camouflage itself with other similar species. Although their normal behaviors are completely opposite to those of the Safetiosio Vehicularity, the VV is able to meddle and often evade its capture attempt. #Hide and seek
Although VV is highly skilled in one area, he is incredibly lacking in decision-making, communication, or any rational thinking. Scientists have studied them regularly and found that although they have a large enough brain to support these abilities, they only use about 1/64th of their capacity and are therefore ranked below the level of the DoDo bird. beautiful but off. #Croak!
Today, officers got to work locating, temporarily capturing, tagging and releasing 177 of these creatures. Officers noted that they found many of them were too hungry and crushed large amounts of processed food in and around their mouths. #YouHaveAWholeSammichInYourBeard#NoOtherSide#YupYouGotIt
Many others appeared to be not so lucky in their recovery skills and were incredibly restless due to extreme hunger. We located a badly damaged shoe in the aft cabin and can only assume the creature ate it. #ItWasASuedePump#Size9#LargeTalons#GanglyToe
Remember these things are among us, so practice all effective safety procedures while driving. Plan ahead. Pay attention. Drive under the speed limit. And be prepared to quit. You never know when one of these beasts will surprise you with its presence. #ThinkSafeDoSafeBeSafe#LivesAreOnTheLine#NevadaOTSSpeedGrantZero Fatalities Nevada#CCSDPDTraffic#CCSDPDFab5
