I live about 50 miles North of Las Vegas and have seen a Large increase in police activity on our roadways. Yes it is true that due to the budget shortfall the highway partrol as well as metro have been told to increase traffic stops. I was told by an officer that they are now ticketing for anything 5 MPH and over the speed limit rather that the previous 8 MPH over. Our local Napa store has been flooded with people who have been pulled over and ticketed for a daytime running light or licence plate light which was not working. So slow it down and make sure your lights are working. Unless you would like to donate your money to the government. We all know that they can spend our money more wisely than you can.
