Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Law enforcement agencies around the valley are cracking down on dangerous drivers.

The Southern Nevada Traffic Task Force conducted a multi-agency saturation patrol on Wednesday.

North Las Vegas officials said this has been an especially deadly month on their roadways, with two pedestrians deaths in the past two weeks.

"Everyone has a responsibility here. We want to encourage drivers to slow down, and stop at the line if somebody's trying to cross the cross walk. At the same time, we want to encourage pedestrians to push the button, wait their turn," said Officer Aaron Patty.

Local agencies said their officers will not tolerate any dangerous driving, any day of the week.
