Laughlin River Run will bring out extra patrols through Sunday


BULLHEAD CITY – The Bullhead City Police Department reminds motorists to keep an eye out for motorcyclists and each other during the Laughlin River Run.


Spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said traffic, particularly on the highway, will be heavily congested. There will be increased patrols in an “effort to deter criminal activity and to help make the weekend as safe as possible for everyone,” she said.

Fromelt said that riding without a helmet is legal in Arizona, but head protection is required in neighboring Nevada and California. Lane splitting is illegal in Arizona and eye protection is required.

Curfew for juveniles in Bullhead City has not been extended. Children younger than 14 have a midnight to 5 a.m. curfew on the weekends and juveniles from 14 to under 18 have a 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. curfew.
