Safety Tips for Pedestrians in Las Vegas

So, what can you, as a pedestrian, do to protect yourself from being involved in an accident with a motor vehicle? Here are some suggestions that will help protect you:

  • Walk on sidewalks whenever possible.
  • When walking directly on a road always face traffic and stay as far off to the side as you can.
  • Never assume a driver sees you. Try to make eye contact with an approaching driver—this will let you know that he or she sees you.
  • Be visible. Wear bright colors when walking during the day. After dark wear reflective gear and carry a flashlight.
  • Stay alert. Pay attention to your surroundings. Don’t listen to music with two earbuds in at the same time, text or watch videos on your phone or engage in intense phone conversations while walking. Remember too that some electric cars make very little sound when approaching.
  • Be especially careful at intersections. This is a site of frequent accidents involving pedestrians. Always obey the traffic lights and look in all directions before stepping off the curb, even if you have the right of way.
  • Be on the lookout for cars reversing out of driveways and parking spaces. You may be less visible to them at those times.
  • Avoid using alcohol or drugs before or during a walk. Just as for drivers, these substances can blur your vision and reduce your ability to react quickly to avoid an accident.
