Two big mistakes many car owners make

Ask car owners what the biggest mistake they have made is, and you are likely to get a variety of responses. Some may go something like, "I bought a boring used car when I should have splurged on something my heart wanted," or "I did not think ahead enough and got a car that is too small to fit all of my kids."

3 tips for driving safely during the NFR

As a Las Vegas native, you know that the National Finals Rodeo is here every year. As it approaches this year, you are probably dreading the uptick in traffic. When the NFR gets into full swing, the streets get full of more cars and the sidewalks packed with more pedestrians than usual. 

Risks facing commuters in the Las Vegas area

Depending on your preferences and personality, your daily commute could be something you look forward to or something you dread. No matter the situation, though, there are certain risks you face, and this is especially true in states such as Nevada. In fact, numbers from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Highway Administration show death rates are unusually high for Nevada drivers and pedestrians. (The numbers are better for passengers.) So, if you spend a lot of time in your car, here are some things to think about:

Halloween pedestrian safety in Las Vegas

Halloween is a night of chills and thrills in Las Vegas for adults and children alike. Unfortunately, though, some of the chills turn out to be real when pedestrians get injured or killed in car accidents. In fact, the pedestrian risk of fatalities doubles, and the risk of a drink-related fatality increases by 17 percent.

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. You are stuck footing the bill, and the chances are pretty good you will never recoup the loss from the responsible party or at least will have a very hard time doing it.

3 reasons every driver should have collision coverage

After a car accident in Nevada, your immediate concerns are about injuries, but soon, your focus moves on to damage. If your vehicle is heavily damaged, you may be worried about repairs. What will you drive in the meantime? How will you get your vehicle operational again? What will it all cost? One way to prevent worries and concerns over affording the costs to fix damage is to have collision coverage on your auto insurance.

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. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this behavior, it becomes a problem when these people drive. Whether they drove into town with their own car or rented a vehicle, these people can cause serious accidents if they drive while intoxicated.

The dangers of failing to yield when making a left turn

Two drivers traveling on a Nevada roadway in opposite directions may have different responsibilities under the Nevada motor vehicle rules, particularly if one decides to make a turn. A motorist who forgets this obvious but necessary rule puts him or herself and others at great risk of injury or even death.

Why Nevada Is Home To A High Number Of Truck Accidents

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.
