Nevada residents meet to discuss reducing number of fatal crashes

Reno residents are no doubt aware of the high number of traffic fatalities that happen every year. These unfortunate occurrences are avoidable, however, and in the southern part of our state, citizens and officers are working together to bring education about traffic safety to the forefront.

In 2013 Nevada executed a "Zero Fatality" campaign, but the results were not as successful as they could have been. The number of fatal accidents was still high in our state, and this fact suggests that drivers and pedestrians are still not taking basic safety precautions on Nevada roads.

The Southern Nevada Traffic Safety Committee recently met and agreed to continue emphasizing that law enforcement officers should remain closely involved in the safety of drivers and pedestrians, and that community members should also play a part. The committee focused on three key areas: pedestrians, motorcycles and seat belts.

Many motorists and pedestrians who are victims of auto accidents find it necessary to prove that the other driver was negligent in some way. This proof is often the key to an injured party’s receiving compensation for medical bills and other costs resulting from a collision.

However, many families who have been affected by auto accidents are not aware of the available legal options for alleviating the financial burdens caused by a crash. In addition to pain and suffering, the monetary cost of an auto accident can be extreme. A motor vehicle accident attorney can suggest courses of action to help victims or their families to move forward.
