Desert safety: The Clark County (Nev.) Commission has ordered a feasibility study on a proposal to install emergency telephone call boxes along Interstate 15, Interstate 95, Highway 160 and Highway 93, all main thoroughfares leading to Las Vegas. Thirty-two percent of Las Vegas visitors are from Southern California, and 66 percent of them arrive by car via Interstate 5, say Nevada officials.
