Nevada Limo Drivers Enhance National Safety

Posted on February 16, 2005 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

LAS VEGAS – Drivers of limousines and taxicabs in Las Vegas are on the alert for behavior, devices, or objects that appear suspicious, in an effort to support homeland security. One of the nation’s top travel destinations, Las Vegas welcomed 37.4 million visitors last year.

Las Vegas has been considered a terror target since shortly after the September 11, 2001, attacks when it was determined that Mohammed Atta and his hijackers made trips there before their suicide attacks on New York City and Washington. As a result, Las Vegas hotels and casinos have increased security efforts. Now the state is asking drivers to keep a sharp eye on their passengers.

Nevada’s public safety department has issued laminated cards to drivers asking them to watch for “overly curious, nervous or cautious individuals; unusual behavior of drivers or delivery personnel; suspicious packages and storage devices; people who are taking photographs or making diagrams of high-profile targets.” The cards also include important phone numbers for contacting local law enforcement.
