Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Crosswalk?

Crosswalks are considered part of the roadway used to channel pedestrian traffic safely across the roadway. Crosswalks can be both marked and unmarked. Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 484A.065 defines a crosswalk to mean:

Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 484A.065 defines a crosswalk to mean: “1. That part of a highway at an intersection included within the connections of the lateral lines of the sidewalks on opposite sides of the highway measured from the curbs or, in the absence of curbs, from the edges of the traveled portions of highways; or 2. Any portion of a highway at an intersection or elsewhere distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by lines or other markings on the surface.”

(NRS 484A.095 defines any public road as a highway.) Accordingly, a legal crosswalk exists at all public street intersections whether marked or unmarked. However, the only way a crosswalk can exist at a mid-block location is if it is marked. The City of Mesquite uses the “bar pattern to mark crosswalks in accordance with the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), latest edition.

Expand

How are Crosswalks used?

At marked and unmarked crosswalks, motorists must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians that are in the crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the same half of the roadway the motorist is on (NRS 484B.283). Crosswalks are marked to define the location where pedestrians can legally cross and to delineate the pedestrian path crossing the road. Pedestrian crossing safety relies on the judgement exercised by pedestrians and drivers; therefore, educating pedestrians and drivers is essential in providing for a safe operation.

When should I call 9-1-1?

Call 9-1-1 if there is a threat to loss of life or property. An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from Emergency Medical Services, the Police or Fire Department. Call 9-1-1 to:

  • SAVE A LIFE
  • STOP A CRIME
  • REPORT A FIRE

In any other situation, please call the non-emergency number (702) 346-6911.

Expand

How does 9-1-1 work?

Mesquite Police Dispatchers take all of the 9-1-1 calls for the City of Mesquite. Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City and nearby Mohave County jurisdictions all have their own Police Departments. If you call 9-1-1 from a phone located in one of these areas, your call will be routed to the respective department’s dispatch center. Therefore, when you call 9-1-1 from a phone within Mesquite City limits, you will be talking to the Dispatchers who work at Mesquite Police Department Communications Center.  If you call 9-1-1 from Bunkerville or Overton areas, your call will be routed to Las Vegas Metro Dispatch.
