HENDERSON, Nev. - A valley driver observes people making illegal u-turns near the Henderson DMV office on American Pacific Drive.
Drivers who leave the DMV are making u-turns at the end of the median, despite a sign indicating such turns are illegal at that location.
The sign is clear - letting drivers know as they approach the end of that median they are not allowed to make a u-turn. City officials examined the area and determined the sign to be "very visible".
This creates two conflicts with drivers exiting the DMV. First, they are crossing lanes of traffic to get in position to make the illegal u-turn - cutting off eastbound traffic. Second, those making the u-turn are cutting off traffic on westbound American Pacific.
Since so many drivers exiting the DMV need to get back to Stephanie Street and the 215 Beltway, Traffic8 recommends accessing southbound Stephanie Street from the DMV and avoiding American Pacific altogether.
Traffic8 has also asked the Henderson Police Department to include this area for increased enforcement.
