Driving You Crazy: Slow Drivers Along Summerlin Parkway

LAS VEGAS - After seeing numerous motorists driving well below the maximum speed limit on Summerlin Parkway, a viewer wants to know if Nevada has a minimum speed limit.

When authorities see consistently slow speeds, they sometimes establish a minimum speed limit. Other states have this, but not Nevada. That's because Nevada typically experiences more problems with speeders than slow drivers.

If a driver is traveling 20 miles per hour or more below the maximum speed limit, that driver could be cited for impeding traffic. The laws vary depending on how many marked travel lanes there are on any given road.

Patrols Looking for People Breaking Fire Rules on Mt. Charleston

Patrols Looking for People Breaking Fire Rules on Mt. Charleston

New saturation patrols started Wednesday and will last through the Fourth of July weekend, on and around Mt. Charleston.   

Federal and state law enforcement will be looking for anyone breaking the law and especially those breaking fire restriction rules.

Right now, all federal lands in the Spring Mountain National Recreation Area, which includes Mt. Charleston, are under Stage One Fire Restrictions.

That means campfires are restricted to designated campgrounds and absolutely no fireworks are allowed.

"There is no such thing as a safe-and-sane firework on the forest. It is against the law to use them in Clark County and it is against the law to use them in the forest," Jay Nichols with the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area said.

Other fire restrictions include:

Boys Make Discovery that Stumped Scientists

LAS VEGAS -- A group of valley kids were able to discover something scientists could not -- an invasive species taking over a local lake. Their findings may save schools of endangered fish and keep the lake's food chain afloat.

The peaceful waters of Lake Harriet in Spring Mountain Ranch State Park are full of creatures. It's a young boy's dream. Adventurers Cole Turner and Jack Silberman didn't know there was an unknown predator lurking in the water and devouring state protected Pahrump pool fish.

"He was like this big and he was like crawling up and I was like, oh my gosh! That's the biggest one we've had," said Jack Silberman.

The two boys managed to do in 15 minutes what the biologists couldn't do in weeks. They found an actual, live crayfish.

"We had the right timing. I mean we came in and we saw them," Silberman said.
