Pedestrian hit, killed outside marked crosswalk in Las Vegas. https://www.reviewjournal.com/local/local-las-vegas/pedestrian-hit-killed-outside-marked-crosswalk-in-las-veugas/
Las Vegas, Nevada has the highest pedestrian fatality rate in the United States, it’s basically because the state doesn’t penalize who hits people.
It only goes on because the state doesn’t care and they don’t enforce the laws that every other state in the United States does.
People don’t yield in Las Vegas, most drivers don’t care or know the meaning of the world yield and watch out for other people, no matter if there’s a law stating to watch out for them or not!
It’s just a matter of common sense really.
It doesn’t help anything that there’s a vape place in every mini mall and that Nevada legalized marijuana in Nevada now and almost every street corner there are hotels and casinos that sell alcohol and cigarettes in vending machines It’s almost like they give you a pack of cigarettes coming to the state!
The state doesn’t make them pay for what they do which is why it goes on. Anytime that you hit a pedestrian is called manslaughter that is fact. The car will always win! There is no time that a person is ever hit by a vehicle that they live or that they’re not crippled afterwards. In Southern California, where I come from there is a $200 fine if you go through a light and there are cameras on every street corner and it is enforced period when people go through the light the camera takes a picture of him they are fine $200 and so it decreases the odds that. Plus, people just seem to care more there and they actually have a value for human life in Southern California.
And that’s what I have to say about that.
Things continue only continue because the people have never thought of a better way and a way to solve problems.
I hope one day I can say that Las Vegas actually does have a system built to where it cares about its comminuity and human beings and values human life as sacred.
