NHP starts 'Badge on a Bike' program

Posted at 12:03 PM, Sep 26, 2015

Some Nevada Highway Patrol troopers will be ditching their patrol cars for bikes in an effort to keep bicyclists safe.

Bicycle-related deaths are up 300 percent in Clark County so NHP is putting officers out in the field on bikes to see and report problems.

Four troopers started on the "Badge on a Bike" program Saturday. They hope to soon increase that number and keep the program going year round.
