LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says valley roads have seen a significant increase in deadly crashes and it's not fair to innocent people.

On Wednesday, LVMPD Sheriff Joseph Lombardo emphasized that something needs to be done during the State of the Department address.

The agency gave 173,000 citations to drivers last year hoping that would help change their behavior and put an end to reckless driving, he said.

Lombardo also addressed officers and asked them to be aware of the problem so they can put solutions in place every day while they're out in our community.
