Auto-Pedestrian Accidents Archives

Drivers need to remain focused to prevent pedestrian accidents

Pedestrians are literally everywhere in Nevada cities. Many people choose to travel on foot to avoid congested city streets and maintain a healthy lifestyle. This could be a contributing factor in the increased numbers of pedestrian accidents across the state. Naturally, there will be greater numbers of pedestrians around things such as colleges or popular attractions so drivers should always use extreme caution when traveling close to these areas.

Pedestrian accidents have risen dramatically across the country

Accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians are on the rise in Nevada cities. According to records, pedestrian fatalities have risen sharply in recent years and are at an all time high across the United States. Many factors have contributed to the rise in pedestrian accidents, and some of the most common involve cell phone usage and distracted drivers. Visibility also plays a role in these accidents, as roughly 75 percent of fatal pedestrian accidents happen at night. To prevent accidents, both drivers and pedestrians should avoid distractions and remained focused at all times.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: The tragedies of Las Vegas

Las Vegas is the largest city in Nevada and also one of the most famous cities in the world. The most iconic and well-recognized features of this beautiful city are the bright lights of the Strip, which offer picturesque views especially at night. Visitors from all over the world come to the city for the experience of walking down the strip while sampling the first-class entertainment that is so abundant here. However, with the increased foot traffic also comes the increased risk for auto-pedestrian accidents. Accidents involving pedestrians have been steadily increasing every year in Las Vegas.

Auto-pedestrian accidents continue to increase in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is quickly becoming one of the largest cities in the United States. The city has grown exponentially in recent years as more and more people move here to experience the world-class entertainment and abundant economic opportunities that are now available. This means city sidewalks are crowded with pedestrian traffic, while city streets are congested with vehicular traffic. With pedestrians and vehicles in such close proximity, it's only a matter of time before auto-pedestrian accidents happen.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: Las Vegas man dies after being struck

As cities throughout Nevada become more and more crowded, pedestrians and motorists need to be extra cautious and always pay attention to their surroundings. Unfortunately, distracted or impaired drivers in such close proximity to pedestrians means auto\-pedestrian accidents become almost inevitable. These types of accidents frequently result in very serious injuries or death, since those traveling on foot are completely exposed.
