LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), and Clark County have jointly installed massive rumble strips to prevent illegal trick driving and intersection takeovers.
The rumble strips, similar to those on the shoulders of a freeway but on a larger scale, are designed to shred and damage the tires of cars dangerously spinning in circles.
The strips have been installed at the intersection of US 93 and Grand Valley Parkway, which has long been a frequent haunt for illegal intersection takeovers.
Lt. Daryl Rhoads, who oversees the Traffic Bureau’s RAID team, said the strips will not prevent illegal driving but will wreck the tires of drivers who attempt such maneuvers.
