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.

Impaired or distracted drivers contribute to pedestrian accidents

Sidewalks along Nevada city streets these days are bustling with foot traffic. These city streets are usually congested with vehicular traffic as well. With pedestrians and automobiles in such close proximity, pedestrian accidents become almost inevitable. With the rise of smart phones, GPS navigation systems and other gadgets, modern drivers can quickly become distracted and take their focus off of the road. Distracted drivers only increase the odds of pedestrian and vehicle encounters.

Pedestrian accidents may increase during the holidays

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, more and more people will be present along Nevada city streets as they visit stores and shops in search of gifts for family and friends. This increase in foot traffic can mean an increased risk for pedestrian accidents. Low light conditions typical of this time of year can also contribute to accidents since pedestrians may be harder for motorists to see. Tragically, accidents involving pedestrians can quickly turn fatal since pedestrians are totally exposed and unprotected.

Fatal pedestrian accidents in Nevada could reach record highs

Going for a walk or run near crowded city streets can be a dangerous activity. Roadways are becoming more congested as populations increase in Nevada cities. This means there is a greater risk for accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians. Despite laws and needed improvements in pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure throughout the state, pedestrian accidents are on the rise.

Pedestrian accidents involving bicyclists continute to climb

In crowded Nevada cities these days, walking and biking are great sources of transportation. By walking and biking, commuters can save money and avoid congested roadways. This means of traveling is not only economical, but also healthy and a great way to stay in shape. Running and biking have become popular forms of recreation as healthier lifestyle choices have become a trend in recent years. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are on the rise, so exercising along crowded roadways these days can be very dangerous.

Auto-pedestrian accidents are on the rise across Nevada

Roadways are becoming more and more crowded in the state of Nevada. Increasing numbers of vehicles and pedestrians are sharing city streets as populations continue to rise in cities across the state. Unfortunately, not all drivers are careful behind the wheel, especially with the abundance of distractions that drivers face these days. Distracted and careless drivers combined with increased foot traffic can mean that auto-pedestrian accidents are almost inevitable. These types of accidents can turn deadly in a hurry, as evidenced in a recent Reno crash that killed a pedestrian.

As populations increase, so do auto-pedestrian accidents

Nevada cities are thriving these days, which means more and more people are moving to Nevada to take advantage of the great opportunities the state has to offer. With roadways becoming more and more crowded, a lot of people choose walking as their main source of transportation. Unfortunately, crowded roadways combined with crowded sidewalks means auto-pedestrian accidents are almost inevitable. Recently, some Las Vegas pedestrians were injured when a vehicle left the roadway and struck them on a sidewalk.
