CVSA plans International Roadcheck for May 5 to 7

From May 5 to 7, 2020, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance will be holding its annual International Roadcheck, so CMV drivers in Nevada should take note. During this time, police officers and inspectors will be out to enforce federal truck safety regulations. Most trucks will be put through the most comprehensive inspection possible, the 37-point North American Standard Level I inspection.

Agency to study truck collisions

A collision with a large truck on a Nevada highway can be a frightening prospect. Because these vehicles are so large and heavy, a truck accident can be especially devastating to others on the road around them. Truck accidents can be catastrophic, and they are also on the rise. Between 2009 and 2018, fatal crashes tied to large trucks rose by 52.6%, even as vehicle safety technologies improved. Between 2016 and 2018, fatalities caused by trucking accidents rose by 5.7%. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has announced plans to launch a study to delve into the cause of these crashes.

Red-light cameras save lives, also raise concerns for the public

Every year, red-light running crashes take the lives of hundreds of people, the majority of them being pedestrians, bicyclists and occupants of vehicles other than the offender's. Nevada residents should know that one proposed solution to the trend of red-light running is the installation of a system of red-light cameras.

Pedestrian dies in Reno hit and run

Pedestrians are at risk in Reno and throughout Nevada even when they walk in crosswalks and follow all the basic rules for safety. Drivers are becoming increasingly reckless with distractions, speeding and driving under the influence. This can lead to accidents. In some of these collisions, the driver made the situation worse by fleeing the scene. When this happens, law enforcement does whatever it can to find these drivers. When the driver is found, it is important for the injured pedestrian and their family to know what steps to take to recover compensation.

Three injured in alleged DUI auto accident

The roads in Nevada can be treacherous for many reasons. While recklessness, distraction, speeding and negligence are some of the most common reasons for an auto accident, drunk driving remains one of the biggest concerns. When drivers are under the influence, their reaction time is slowed, their judgment is impaired and they are liable to cause a crash with injuries and fatalities. They then might make the situation worse by choosing to flee the scene. When people have been hurt in an accident caused by a drunk driver, filing a legal claim for compensation might be necessary.
