Retroreflective Backplates Expanding in 2020
Statewide (January 9, 2020) – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDoT) has announced that it will install more retroreflective backplates on traffic lights in 2020. Poor visibility during night driving is one of the most common causes of car accidents in Nevada. NDoT claims that the new backplates can reduce car crashes by as much as 15%.
NDoT plans to deploy 150 retroreflective backplates in Truckee Meadows in early 2020 before expanding throughout the rest of Nevada.
Poor night time visibility can lead to drivers running red lights. Hopefully the new backplates can significantly reduce the number of night crashes.
