4th Annual #Dusk2DawnNV Kicks Off At
The Fourth Annual #Dusk2DawnNV campaign kicks off this Friday, where everyone is a pedestrian... First Friday! The annual effort reminds all road users that days are shorter; meaning there is greater danger on roads due to lack of visibility. This year’s message reminds those walking and driving of the critical role they play in people getting home safely. The “Do the Bright Thing” message to pedestrians and the “Will You See Them in Time”? message to drivers both highlight the fact that 80 percent of pedestrian deaths occur from #Dusk2Dawn.
Pedestrian fatalities in Clark County year-to-date have topped the 2019 total, with two months of the year to go, and are ahead of 2020 and 2021 total year-to-date. Most alarming is that there were ten pedestrian fatalities in Clark County last November, if this were true this year, we would have the worst year of the past five years by the end of November with another month to go in 2022.
This message is critical in our community, darkness is no friend of road users.
