The Road To Zero Fatalities

 

Wearing a seat belt is the single most effective means of saving lives and reducing injuries in crashes (NHTSA, 2014). Not only could it endanger your life, but not wearing your seat belt could lead to approximately $70 in traffic fines.



 

Between 2011 and 2015, 369 lives were lost in Nevada in alcohol-related crashes. Even what seems like a small buzz can have deadly consequences if you drive. Illegal drugs, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines and lack of sleep can also impair your ability to drive safely.



 

Stay alert when you're operating a vehicle, especially in less-than-ideal conditions—and don't drive when you're not able to give it your full attention.



 

Intersections are shared by a variety of users including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and vehicles. To stay safe at this potential point of conflict, know the laws and know when they apply to you.



 

Auto drivers need to watch for pedestrians and yield to them when walkers have the right-of-way in a crosswalk. Pedestrians also need to pay attention to vehicles on the roadway and obey rules for walking on and crossing streets.



 

Motorcycles are a part of the great American tradition. However, there are certain risks that come with riding a motorcycle. That’s why it’s so important to ride safe and take the necessary precautions when you’re riding on Nevada’s roads.
