Like many weekends during the winter, Mount Charleston is busy.

But this weekend, Nevada Highway Patrol is stepping up enforcement to keep cars from parking on State Routes 156 and 157 or over the solid lines of the shoulder, which officials said leaves no room for emergency vehicles.

NHP said if you're parked illegally, you could get a ticket.

Drivers should expect delays of two hours on the mountain.
