Several bills are being introduced in the City in an effort to improve pedestrian and motorist safety.
There have been more pedestrian deaths in the past year in addition to more fatalities from car accidents. Hit and runs, also, have increased.
A Bill sponsored by Sen. Mark Manendo, D-Las Vegas proposes “pedestrian safety zones”.
Senate Bill 152 sponsored by Sen. Pat Spearman, D-North Las Vegas, is similar to this.
Manendo has indicated that he would like to introduce a bill which calls for stiffer penalties for leaving the scene of an accident.
A bill changing legislative language from accident to crash, Senate Bill 188 is also being introduced.
