River Run - Rules and Parking 2015
Lt. John Healy of the Laughlin Metro Police substation estimates between 30,000 and 40,000 people will be in Laughlin for the River Run event.
There are just a few simple rules to keep in mind to help everyone have fun and be safe:
During the 2015 River Run event the following regulations will be in effect
- No glass or cans permitted on Casino Drive. All beverages must be in plastic.
- No nudity.
- No colors.
- A curfew for minors (under 18 years of age) will be in effect from 6 pm-5am Thurs-Sunday.
- Nevada has a mandatory motorcycle helmet law, which will be strictly enforced.
- In Nevada, Motorcyclists are reminded that lane splitting is illegal.
More than 150 officers will be staged in Laughlin, with public safety agencies throughout the Tri-state area help directly with or ready and on call to provide assistance as needed. These include the Clark County Fire Department, the Nevada and California Highway Patrol, and the Bullhead City Police Department. Statistic from last year showed a safe year with minimum arrests. Officers are given a lot of discretion to write citations rather than taking someone to jail.
Be careful driving and be aware of motorcycles everywhere, especially when pulling out into traffic or making a left turn. Parking and Traffic can be difficult at times. Be aware of pedestrians (especially those not using the crosswalks) and motorcycles everywhere.
Some tips: Bikers can obtain parking spots at reserved parking sections at most of the casinos. They even offer reserved, secured lots (for a fee). Space for cars is at a premium, and garages fill up fast. Be patient and go earlier than you planned. Valet fills up fast too and is usually limited to only guests of the hotel or players club members. Other parking spots include the Outlet Mall.
