Southern Nevada pilot program aims to deter wrong-way drivers

The Nevada Department of Transportation is implementing a pilot program to deter wrong-way drivers, whose crashes are far more likely to result in death or serious injury than other types of highway collisions.

From 2005 to 2015, there were 409 wrong-way crashes in Nevada resulting in 75 deaths, according to Transportation Department spokesman Tony Illia.
