Despite safety improvements, pedestrian accidents still happen

Las Vegas is one of the top tourists destinations in the United States. Every year, thousands of people visit this city known as the Entertainment Capital of the World. There will inevitably be even more pedestrians present on and around city streets as tourist season approaches. Unfortunately, cities in Nevada have seen an increase in pedestrian accidents in recent years. Any accident of this type is traumatic, but when the at-fault driver flees the scene the experience can be devastating for victims and families.

Pedestrian accidents: Pedestrian killed by tractor-trailer

Virtually every Nevada resident is a pedestrian at some point during the day. Pedestrians are unprotected and totally exposed, so pedestrian accidents are more likely to be fatal. When walkers are struck by extremely large vehicles, such as tractor-trailers, the chances of survival are slim. Recently, I-15 in Las Vegas was shut down after a tractor-trailer ran over and killed a pedestrian.

The wonderful climate here makes for great riding conditions year-round. However, as roads have become more and more crowded in recent years, bicycle accidents have become a big concern. Unfortunately, these type of accidents often result in serious injury or death.

There is no shortage of pedestrians in Nevada today. Unfortunately, any time vehicles and pedestrians are in close proximity, pedestrian accidents will happen.

Take a walk along the streets of Las Vegas and it's easy to see that dangers are abundant. Roadways across Nevada have become extremely crowded and are growing more dangerous every year. Pedestrians who walk on or near these crowded roads are at an increased risk for serious injuries since they are completely exposed. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents have risen sharply in recent years.

Crowded Nevada cities see more pedestrian accidents

It's common knowledge that pedestrians are at a greater risk for serious injury while walking along crowded Nevada roadways. Every person is a pedestrian at some point during the day. Fortunately, the state of Nevada is proactive when it comes to pedestrian safety, and many improvements have been made in recent years in cities across the state. Infrastructure upgrades, sidewalk repairs and new pedestrian bridges are just a few examples of pedestrian safety improvements. Despite these improvements, pedestrian accidents are inevitable when pedestrians and vehicles are in close proximity.
