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.

Data suggests distracted driver behaviors are normalizing

In Nevada and throughout the United States, distracted driving is viewed as an unnecessary and dangerous behavior that people are encouraged to think twice about. Because so many auto accidents happen because of a distracted driver and these cause injuries and fatalities, it seems that people understand the dangers and still choose to drive distracted.

Distracted driver stats improve in Nevada, but concerns remain

Distracted driving is a national issue. It is worrisome here and throughout the United States. To seek strategies to reduce its frequency and make the roads safer, researchers analyze the data for auto accidents due to texting and driving and other forms of distraction. This information can be essential for legislators and law enforcement to understand how to address this problem. Recent research indicates that there has been significant improvement in many states -- including our state -- when it comes to distracted driving. Still, there are concerns and people can be injured and lose their lives in this type of auto accident.

Advocating for your rights following a car accident

Residents in Nevada and elsewhere rely on motor vehicles to get around. Whether it is their person vehicle, a ride share or public transportation, vehicles have many benefits. And, while they are considered a valuable good, they are also considered dangerous because they pose the risk of serious injuries or even death in the event of a crash. A distracted, speeding or intoxicated driver is very hazardous on the roadways and an unsuspecting driver or passenger could suffer tremendously in the event of a crash.

The different types of car accident damages to help victims

Injury damages are available to help injured car accident victims get back on their feet after they have been harmed in a car accident. Car accident damages can help victims recover compensation for their physical, financial and emotional damages suffered because of the negligent actions of a driver.

Wrong way driver crashes into trooper on I-80

A 19-year-old driver is in the Washoe County Jail after causing an early morning crash on I-80 in Sparks, Nevada. Driving a 1966 Chevrolet pickup, the male driver entered I-80 westbound travelling in the wrong direction around 2:00 a.m. on Friday, September 13. He was driving directly into oncoming traffic in the fast lane.

Drunk driving still a serious problem on state roads

For decades, lawmakers, safety advocates and others have tried to decrease drunk driving. Some of their efforts have been focused on education, others on enforcement and stiffer penalties for offenders. And many of these efforts have paid off. However, statistics show drunk drivers remain a serious risk in Nevada.
