World Day of Remembrance

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, observed every third Sunday of November, honors those affected by roadway crashes. Communities worldwide, including many in the US, will unite to promote road safety measures like road redesign, lower speed limits, and enhanced vehicle design. It's a vital platform for governments and road safety advocates to highlight the severity of road-related casualties, urging swift and coordinated efforts to combat this public health crisis.



About us

The Road Equity Alliance 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 on our 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. In fact, we landed in the top spot in 1999.

In this web site you will find lots of information you can use to help understand and/or learn about getting safely to your destination. There are videos, news stories, research, and maps that show where injuries and fatalities have occurred in our valley. There are also tools for teaching road user safety to everyone from kids to senior citizens.

After browsing our site, if you can’t find what you are looking for or need more information, please feel free to Contact Us.

We offer a variety of classes.
