LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Highway Patrol has been working with its California counterpart on what is expected to be a busy spring break weekend.

The NHP says it has partnered with the California Highway Patrol to crack down on the freeway corridor that connects California with Las Vegas.

Patrol officials say a daily average of 45,000 cars enter Nevada from California through Interstate 15.

But that number will likely spike this weekend.

Most Nevada schools are ending their spring break and many California schools are starting theirs.

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, a stretch of I-15 is considered one of the most deadly in the country.

Both agencies are hoping electronic freeway signs flashing warnings to slow down, aircraft measuring speed from the air and other tactics will help discourage reckless drivers.
