Driving You Crazy: Stop sign runners near Charleston & Sloan

LAS VEGAS - A viewer says drivers are ignoring a stop sign at the corner of Raspberry Hill Road and Orange Hill Drive, southeast of Charleston Boulevard and Sloan Lane.

The viewer says drivers speed through the area, and don't attempt to stop. Orange Hill Drive is a dead-end road, but children often play on this street.

Goldfarb Elementary School, Las Vegas High School and Harney Middle School are located nearby.

Because this intersection has several schools in the vicinity, Metro Police will have a larger presence for the first week of school.

As for a long-term solution, Clark County officials offered some advice. They say Las Vegas residents can contact their local Metro Police substation and request increased traffic enforcement.

They can also raise their concerns at the next Metro Police First Tuesday meeting on September 2 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Those who live in zip codes 89142 or 89122 near Goldfarb Elementary School or Las Vegas High School would visit the southeast area command near Harmon Avenue and Sandhill Road.

September's First Tuesday meeting will highlight disaster preparedness, but also allow police to address residents' concerns.
