The Nevada Highway Patrol is getting ready to implement a system designed to offer alerts about traffic problems using social media. The system will use Facebook, Twitter and Nixle, a public service social media tool.
The Nevada Highway Patrol has responded to more than 100 crashes and spinouts on Northern Nevada roads in the past two days. That's why troopers are urging drivers to give themselves more time during the morning commute, when conditions are as icy as they have been this week.
The next couple of days will be some of the busiest of the year for Reno Tahoe International Airport. Many passengers are coming into the area for skiing or New Years. Others are leaving from home after the Christmas Holiday.
