Automobile Accidents in Vegas

By Willie Beamin

If an automobile collides with semi-truck the results are often devastating, with severe personal injuries or wrongful death. With the increase of trucks on the Las Vegas highways, there is an increase in the number of accidents between automobiles and semi-trucks. Common causes of actions with trucks include drunk driving, aggressive driving, speeding, reckless driving, and failure to yield the right-of-way.

In one 30-day period, there were 4 collisions between motorcycle police officers and Las Vegas drivers. Motorcycle police officers indicate that while many accidents involve intoxicated drivers, many accidents are caused by drivers not paying full attention to the road. On many working days, motorcycle police officers spend a lot of time dodging distracted drivers or drunk drivers. Because motorcycles are smaller than most vehicles, they can be easily overlooked inattentive or speeding drivers.

No one can be assured that he or she will not be a victim of another driver who drives recklessly, or who is drunk, or who drives aggressively. Individuals who drive in the state of Nevada can protect themselves from being a victim twice by obtaining automobile insurance. Automobile accidents are costly.

On June 17, 2011, the Las Vegas fire Department simulated a semi truck accident in order to help prepare firemen and rescue workers to save as many lives as possible should an unpredictable semi truck and multiple car accident occur. The rescue workers trained with wenches, the Jaws of Life, and a specialized truck capable of lifting 60 tons off the ground.

The terms of auto insurance may need to be refined in the future. Nevada may see a new type of vehicle on its roads-a Google driverless car. The car is a robotic hybrid that has been previously tested on the road in California. It literally drives itself. It does not need a driver, but if driverless car had a driver, the driver could text messages while the car kept its "eyes" on the roads.
