According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pedestrians are among the most vulnerable groups on American roadways today. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that, in 2012, there were approximately 76,000 pedestrians who were seriously injured in vehicle accidents, and about 5,000 pedestrians were killed. Unfortunately, Nevada is often found in the top 10 most dangerous states for pedestrians. Despite its large tourism base, 90% of the pedestrians and drivers who were involved in fatal accidents were actually residents. Of those pedestrian who were killed in Las Vegas, more than 33% in the period between January 2010 and November 2013 were aged 60 or older, according to local police.
