During the programme, 91% of drivers traveling at more than 104kmph slowed down in areas where preventive measures were deployed.

Artificial intelligence is helping improve safety along a stretch of Las Vegas' busiest highway. The Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) says a yearlong partnership between public safety agencies and a startup technology firm resulted in a 17% reduction in crashes along a portion of northbound Interstate 15 just west of the Las Vegas Strip.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Waycare, a provider of artificial intelligence-based mobility products and services for smart cities, helped lead the crash prevention pilot programme. They hope to use it in other parts of the Las Vegas Valley, including a stretch of US 95 between I-15 and the Rainbow Boulevard curve.
