HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Police in North Las Vegas say 100 motorists were cited for running red lights, and another 36 got summonses for distracted driving or talking on their cellphones during a one-day ticketing blitz focusing on some of the city's busiest intersections.

In all, police from several nearby cities issued 281 citations to motorists in North Las Vegas during the April 12 intersection safety event.

Officer Chrissie Coon says nearly 100 other tickets were issued for registration, equipment, insurance and license violations.

The results in North Las Vegas were reported days after police in Henderson said 520 drivers were ticketed for running red lights during a three-week enforcement effort in that city.

Both efforts were funded by "Joining Forces" grants from the state Department of Public Safety's Office of Traffic Safety.
