RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -The Nevada Highway Patrol and state patrols from 11 other states are doing a joint speed education and enforcement from Friday through Sunday.

The Western States Traffic Safety Coalition reports seeing a surge in people driving 100mph or faster.

“Excess speed is a major factor contributing to serious and fatal crashes for drivers of all ages, along with speeding-related vehicle rollovers,” the NHP said in a statement.

Those dates were chosen to try to curb reckless driving for the Fourth of July Weekend.

The coalition includes:

  • Arizona Department of Public Safety
  • California Highway Patrol
  • Colorado State Patrol
  • Idaho State Police
  • Montana Highway Patrol
  • Nevada Highway Patrol
  • North Dakota Highway Patrol
  • Oregon State Police
  • South Dakota Highway Patrol
