Students can be involved in auto-pedestrian accidents

As summer winds down and students return to school in Nevada, there will be an increase in foot traffic along busy roadways. Motorists should take caution and reduce speed when entering school zones. Children walking to and from school could be susceptible to auto\-pedestrian accidents. Unfortunately, not all drivers are as focused as they should be behind the wheel, especially with the ever increasing amount of distractions these days. Police are seeking information after a car allegedly struck a young girl in Reno and fled the scene

Pedestrian accidents are often fatal

These days, traveling on foot along busy Nevada city streets can be very risky. An increasing amount of foot traffic combined with distracted or impaired drivers can be a recipe for disaster. Laws exist that protect pedestrians, but despite these laws, accidents involving automobiles and pedestrians seem to be occurring more frequently. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are often fatal since pedestrians are more exposed. One such accident recently happened in Las Vegas and left a pedestrian dead.

Pedestrian accidents are continuing to rise

Nevada cities are booming these days and populations are on the rise. An increasing population means there are more vehicles on the road than ever before having to co-exist with pedestrians walking along crowded city streets. With vehicles and pedestrians in such close proximity, pedestrian accidents are almost inevitable. Unfortunately, they are often fatal. A Las Vegas pedestrian was recently killed after being struck by a car.
