The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Quite a few more people are going to be in town with the BIG GAME coming up in the next couple of weeks. For that reason, we wanted to remind you of the Top 5 Most Dangerous Intersections in Las Vegas! As you drive around the Valley, and more importantly, around Allegiant Stadium just a couple of things to remember. Slow down and drive defensively in our fair city! The Mike & Carla Morning Show just reminding everyone to pay attention.

In fact, we’ve all notice how more and more people moving here. For locals, you have to keep your head on a swivel! With all of us from all over the country, we all have different driving styles. That might be a reason for a lot of the problems on the roads. But that still doesn’t change the fact that driving throughout our city you really have to pay attention!

The Most Dangerous Intersections in Las Vegas

According to a recent KLAS-Channel 8 report, they found these to be the Top 5 most dangerous intersections in Las Vegas over the years…not much has changed. Before you scroll down, other intersection that we might a little dicey…how about Flamingo and Valley View? A lot of stuff going on there, turn lanes and new businesses being built on that corner. Another one that comes to mind is Tropicana and Paradise. Multiple turn lanes, people coming trying to get to the airport, with Paradise turning into a one way at different points.

Something you might not realize is that a lot of the country’s major roadways are oriented east-to-west.  So a lot of us will be driving directly into the sun on our commute. So make sure you are a bit more cautious driving around Las Vegas today and maybe for the next few days as people get adjusted to the new season.

Tips To Help You Drive In Southern Nevada

As crazy as it might sound, it just doesn’t happen today, but it also happens around the spring equinox in March as well.  Here are a few things that can help . . .

1.  Windex the outside AND inside of your windshield.  There’s a lot less glare when it’s clean.

2.  Keep sunglasses handy.  It’s not summer anymore, but you still need them.  Polarized sunglasses work best.

3.  Slow down.  The sun can still momentarily blind you, even with sunglasses on.  And keep in mind that other drivers might be struggling too.

Now if you are new to Vegas, you’ll notice right away how bad traffic can be and how drivers, who come from all over the place, bring those specific driving skills from where they’re from and think everything is just fine. Well, guess what? Driving does get a little hectic around the valley and depending on where you’re headed, a few areas you just might want to avoid as you get used to the traffic here.
