Twenty-mile backups heading out of Las Vegas to California are not uncommon, police say. Leaving Las Vegas isn't just a movie starring Nicolas Cage. On the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, it's also a recipe for a 20-mile backup, state road police say. 'It is not uncommon to have a 20 mile back up leaving Las Vegas,' Nevada State Police Highway Patrol Sgt. Jason Buratczuk said in an email. 'Motorist(s) need to plan accordingly and prepare for long delays.' It's holiday traffic season along Interstate 15.
