LAS VEGAS -- When traffic lights turn red police all around the valley say many drivers simply ignore them.
In an effort to get drivers to pay more attention and obey the signals, law enforcement recently teamed up and saturated some of the most traveled intersections.
Within a few weeks, police ticketed hundreds of people. In Henderson and North Las Vegas combined, more than 1,000 citations were handed out to drivers who sped through red lights.
Chrissie Coon with the North Las Vegas Police Department said running a red light can have serious consequences. In many cases people who run red lights aren't just breaking the law, they are putting other lives in jeopardy.
