RENO/LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- To protect roadway safety, the Nevada Department of Transportation is offering Freeway Service Patrol service in Las Vegas and Reno.

NDOT says customized Freeway Service Patrol vans will patrol continuous routes and provide free assistance with disabled vehicles, lost motorists, pedestrians and certain other incidents such as animals on the roadway, travel lane or shoulder debris, vehicle fires, and fuel leaks.

The Freeway Service Patrol is not available on-call, but will stop on their regular route to provide needed assistance. Dial *NHP (*647) to report drunk drivers, traffic crashes, stranded or disabled motorists, or any suspicious roadside incidents to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

Additional information is available by calling (775) 888-7000.

Hasn't the FSP been in operation for some years now? I saw a new pickup/service body FSP vehicle just today. Besides "getting up to speed", NV4: could U publish the schedule in a normal format so we can READ it?
