Car Accidents in Las Vegas
Painstakingly detailed research involving motor vehicle collisions has given us a vital awareness regarding the most dangerous times to drive in the state of Nevada. These studies, conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, indicate that a higher number of car accident-related fatalities take place at night.
This phenomenon is likely caused by several different compounded circumstances such as a larger number of drivers who are under the influence of alcohol, drivers who are more likely to speed, and drivers and passengers who do not wear their seat belts.
About 34% of all vehicular fatalities list a causative factor of speeding, and although drunk driving accidents happen around the clock, the incident rates jump to three times as much once the sun goes down.
