Driving You Crazy: Light at Horizon Ridge and Sandy Ridge

HENDERSON, Nev. - A valley driver says a mistimed light at Horizon Ridge Parkway and Sandy Ridge Avenue is making u-turns extremely difficult.

The driver says he waited five sequences before the light recognized turning traffic.

This is a popular u-turn spot, because it's the only spot for some time where Horizon Ridge traffic can legally turn around to get back to the more popular Eastern Avenue.

The viewer adds the driver behind him grew inpatient, drove around him and made an illegal u-turn on the red light.

The good news is this illegal activity is no longer necessary at this intersection.

RTC FAST placed a ticket with the City of Henderson to check the detection system at this traffic light. Crews found the problem and made timing adjustments. If your car is in the turn lane, you will now get a green turn arrow.

Henderson Police to Participate in National Research Project

Henderson Police to Participate in National Research Project

Rating customer service is commonplace in many industries, but public safety is not one of them.

That will change later this year in Henderson, as police will be the subject of a national study.

Henderson was selected as one of 100 police departments nationwide to participate in a Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice-funded research project.

Starting later this summer, anyone who interacts with Henderson officers might be asked to rate their interaction with the officers as part of the National Police Research Platform developed and overseen by the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Center for Research in Law and Justice.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns Advocate For Background Checks

LAS VEGAS -- Mayors Against Illegal Guns gathered Monday morning at the Henderson Department of Motor Vehicles to spread their message of the importance of background checks for almost all gun purchases.

According to the group, 86 percent of Nevada favors background checks, but even so, plenty of people had something to say about the controversial background check.

Not everyone wanted to hear the message, but members of the group passed out flyers and talked to anyone who would listen.

"You have to go in there, in the DMV to get your license, your drivers license, your license plate," said Mike Prior, a volunteer for the group. "You have to go in there, even to register to vote. You have to have ID."

The group has lobbied hard for a bill that would require background checks, even running TV advertising campaigns calling out Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.
