All the talk about a new High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane on I-15 may be driving traffic anchor Nate Tannenbaum crazy
Fasten your seat-belts: Nate's going into outer space!

What's driving you crazy???
"H-O-V me up, Scotty”
These are the voyages of the traffic ship, Good-Day. Our 8NewsNow mission: to explore strange new HOV lanes. Traffic log, 051019: an HOV lane already exists on US95. There's one coming may 20th to I-15, whether you like it or not.
First: NDOT has a simple HOV in-and-out point map that's right here on this web page (click the video). Second: Maybe NDOT could have come up with something other than “closed” over the overhead sign. How about “not yet”? or “May 20th”? And one more photo shows that - as Tony Illia and NDOT have been saying - only *1* H-O-V lane on I-15. What had been the 2nd express lane will be in service for all traffic. Third: well, beam in again on monday for some of *your* commentary - and, boy, has there been plenty - as we - - Boldly HOV where no one has HOV'd before.
Buckle up, drive carefully and put down that communicator. uh. I mean phone!

Something that drives just about all of us crazy - unless you're the person trying to get away with it: speeding.
We've all seen them: the bobbers and weavers, the tailgaters who can't wait to jump in front of you - - only to turn right – right in front of you - at the next exit or street.
And - let's be real here - just about anyone who's ever gotten behind the wheel has probably pushed the speedometer beyond wherever it's supposed to be.Read the Full Article

One more reminder before the new HOV lanes kick in on Monday.
H-O-V stands for “high occupancy vehicle” which means there are supposed to be at least two people in any car using that lane. There's been one on the 95 from the Spaghetti Bowl out past the Rainbow curve, but it was only in effect at peak driving times. So here's the thing: they're putting one of those H-O-V lanes in on I-15, now, too. They're making the entire H-O-V system 24 hours! That starts on Monday, too. yeah! We don't want you getting caught by surprise. Of course the Nevada Highway Patrol *is* giving a 30-day grace period on tickets to H-O-V lane violators who try getting away with a single occupant car. After June 20th? Some drivers will *still* be “surprised” by the $250 fine on the ticket they may get.
We have a map of where you're supposed to get in and out of the H-O-V lanes on this web page.Read the Full Article

Here are a few things you should know about the next few days along the 95 in that area.Read the Full Article
