RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Nevada Highway Patrol has investigated 15 fatal accidents in northeastern Nevada in 2014, according to a recent NHP press release.

“Every accident is a tragedy, and someone did not make it home to their family,” says Trooper Jim Stewart with the NHP.

These fatal accidents are can be attributed to not wearing seat belts, alcohol (drinking and driving) and other distractions.

“It only takes 2 seconds to buckle up. Always get a designated driver if you plan on consuming alcohol. If the phone rings when you are driving, let it ring,” says Trooper Jim Stewart.

The Nevada Highway Patrol, along with other law enforcement agencies in Nevada, are currently “Joining Forces” until July 6th to get impaired/drunk drivers off the road in their commitment to zero fatalities.

Officials want to remind Nevadan's that one fatality is too many, and to make good decisions when driving. Your life depends on it.

there's a hyphen (or should be) between 'traffic' and 'related' EDIT

Speed you obviously need a helmet because you have definitely bumped your head one too many times.

I'll bet over half were because the car drivers and occupants weren't wearing safety helmets. Hey-all the "experts" say they save bike riders' lives,but look how many CAR drivers die each year from head injuries. If "they" wanna make 'em mandatory,make 'em mandatory for ALL motor vehicle operators. Anything less than "ALL OR NONE" is DISCRIMINATION, which is ILLEGAL.
