There were 540 pedestrian auto accidents which occurred in Nevada involving injuries in 1986. There were 27 fatalities. Nineteen of them were in Clark county.

There were 506 pedestrian auto accidents which occurred involviing injuries in 1987 in Nevada. Forty-two fatalities occurred. Thirty-two of these occurred in Nevada.

Nevada also has the largest number of bicycle deaths. Five fatalities occurred in Nevada.

The National Highway Patrol doesn't know why the numbers are so high.

InĀ  many cases the victim was crossing against the light or disobeying street lights.

The outcome for a pedestrian in an auto accident can only be grave.

Pedestrians may feel that the lighting system is confusing while others simply take their life into their hands.

Young children and the aged are the primary victims. Children generally fall below the car when short because of their height.

Thelma Smid of the Nevada Safety Council feels many visitors may be distracted because of the sight seeing attractions.
