It Can Wait for 28 Challenge

Nevada Office of Traffic Safety

The Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP), Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), Zero Fatalities and the Las Vegas Justice Court (LVJC) developed the “It Can Wait for 28 Challenge” program to promote better driving habits concerning distracted driving. The program is designed to divert violators of Nevada’s “hands free” law into an educational program and ultimately gain voluntary compliance. Each agency has a role to play in the success of this program.
