HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Henderson police say officers looking for distracted drivers during a three-week enforcement blitz ticketed 75 motorists for infractions like texting, checking emails, accessing the Internet or talking on cellphones.

Police spokeswoman Kathleen Richards says officers reported making 605 traffic stops, and issued a total of 710 citations during the effort, with help from North Las Vegas, Mesquite, Boulder City and Las Vegas police.

More than 300 tickets were for speeding, 89 were for registration and insurance violations, and 58 were for running a red light.

The April 1-20 Joining Forces program was backed by a $200,000 federal grant, through the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety.
