Pedestrian accidents: Mother and young boy killed

Take a walk along the streets of Las Vegas and its 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.

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.

Pedestrian accidents are increasing across Nevada

A reason why Nevada cities are in the midst of a population boom is the warm, comfortable climate. Even during the colder months, the warm climate in Nevada enables residents to enjoy a host of outdoor activities such as walking, running or biking. Those that live in and around cities often choose walking as a primary source of transportation. Walking is not only economical, but has many health benefits. Unfortunately, walking along congested city streets can also be very dangerous as pedestrian accidents are rising across the state.

As populations rise, so do pedestrian accidents

As more and more people move to Nevada to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities that abound, populations are dramatically increasing in cities all across the state. In direct correlation, pedestrian accidents have also increased over the last few years. These type of accidents often have deadly outcomes, since pedestrians are totally exposed to the elements. Now more than ever, those that travel by vehicle or on foot need to remain focused and pay attention to their surroundings at all times.

Auto-pedestrian accidents can also happen in parking lots

More and more people are flocking to the great state of Nevada to take advantage of the many wonderful things that the state has to offer. A booming economy, great night life and an abundance of outdoor activities are just a few of the opportunities that await those that decide to take up residence here. Cities in Nevada are becoming increasingly crowded with foot traffic, as walking is a healthy source of transportation and recreation. Parking lots are not often thought of as dangerous locations when one thinks of auto\-pedestrian accidents. However, more pedestrians are injured in parking lots than most people realize.
