Halloween pedestrian safety in Las Vegas

Halloween is a night of chills and thrills in Las Vegas for adults and children alike.

How to handle an accident with an uninsured driver

Getting into a car accident is never a good thing. When the accident is caused by a driver who does not have insurance, things go from bad to worse.

The dangers of drowsy drivers in Las Vegas

If you live in Las Vegas, you know it is the city that parties all night. Tourists come for the weekend and stay all night gambling, drinking and shopping.

In an average year in the United States, nearly 4,000 people die as a result of a trucking accident. Tens of thousands more are injured in such incidents. Owing to the unusual number of visitors that come to the state each year, and the supplies brought in to cater to them, Nevada – and Las Vegas in particular – is home to a disproportionately high number of these trucking accidents.

In Nevada, Pedestrian Fatalities Are On The Rise

The rate of pedestrian traffic fatalities is rising across the United States – and the increase in deaths in Nevada is significantly sharper than the national average. According to a recent study conducted by the Governors Highway Safety Association, pedestrian fatalities (i.e. when an automobile hits a pedestrian) rose nationwide by about 11 percent between 2015 and 2016. In Nevada, the rate increase stood at roughly 24 percent.

In Las Vegas, Auto Accidents Increase Around The 4th Of July

Las Vegas sees an uptick in tourism around the 4th of July. Families and partiers alike schedule their travel plans around the holiday, wanting to make the most of their time off work.
