PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

Sadly, we kill a lot of pedestrians in Clark County. In 2017, that number was the highest ever recorded in our city, at 78. So many things play a role in our issues! If every road user was more predictable we would all be safer, no matter what mode of travel we use. Our primary service is to be a resource for the community. So, if this is an issue you want to learn more about, we have a program for you! –More…

About us

The Vulnerable Road Users Project is part of the Transportation Research Center at UNLV, and we have been working on the pedestrian safety issue for a long time!!

It is startling how many lives are lost every year in Clark County when people crossing streets are hit by vehicles. In the 1990’s and early 2000’s we were always in the top ten for pedestrian fatalities per capita across the US; we in fact, were the top spot in 1999, another bad list to top.

On this web site you will find a lot of information you can use to help understand and/or teach about getting safely to your destination. There are videos, news stories, research, maps that show where injuries and fatalities have happened. There are tools for teaching everyone from kids to senior citizens,

Please browse to find what you are looking for, and if you can’t find it or need more information, feel free to Contact Us.
