There is an abundance of pedestrians who choose to walk as their main mode of transportation in Nevada. Unfortunately, this also means that many people will be seriously injured or even killed in pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident with a vehicle, which means that a pedestrian accident could cause extensive damage.
