The United States economy is currently trending up and the state of Nevada is following suit. A flourishing economy leads to a greater need to transport goods across the country. Due to this, there are more semitrailers on the road than ever before. These huge rigs share roadways that are already crowded with other vehicles, which has led to an increase in trucking accidents in recent years. Since pedestrians are commonplace along roadways in most Nevada cities, the chance for accidents involving pedestrians and tractor-trailers is always present.
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.
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.
These days, traveling on foot along busy Nevada city streets can be very risky. An increasing amount of foot traffic combined with distracted or impaired drivers can be a recipe for disaster. Laws exist that protect pedestrians, but despite these laws, accidents involving automobiles and pedestrians seem to be occurring more frequently. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are often fatal since pedestrians are more exposed. One such accident recently happened in Las Vegas and left a pedestrian dead.
Nevada cities are booming these days and populations are on the rise. An increasing population means there are more vehicles on the road than ever before having to co-exist with pedestrians walking along crowded city streets. With vehicles and pedestrians in such close proximity, pedestrian accidents are almost inevitable. Unfortunately, they are often fatal. A Las Vegas pedestrian was recently killed after being struck by a car.
