NV50 to hold ‘Buckle Up – Slow Down’ campaign

In honor of Rachel French, former NV50 patron, and other traffic fatalities within the past months, NV50 Nightclub and Restaurant will be holding a “Buckle Up – Slow Down” campaign through Monday.

Using the facility’s large LED sign and signs bought from local Carson High School’s student campaign “Slow Down, Kids Matter,” NV50 hopes to raise awareness to the thousands of cars that travel daily on Highway 50 near NV50, many of which drive faster than the 45 mph speed limit.

Handouts for the Rachel French Memorial Fund are available at NV50. Call 742-7300 or 291-3449.
