If you think that we are lacking on vehicle accidents and fatalities here in Las Vegas, think again. Considering that I drive around the valley continuously I can honestly say our traffic is out of control in a horrible way. This morning I can upon a fatality, a motorcyclist lost his/her life in North Las Vegas. Ok, you’re probably thinking well, after all a motorcycle doesn’t have much protection, they should be more careful. Yes, that’s true but our “Car/ vehicle” drivers suck here (many of them). If you don’t believe me give it a whirl, get out there and drive, see what I see. You’re going to see idiots speeding like no tomorrow. You’ll experience all ages and nationalities driving very slow in the fast lane. People cutting others off. Lane changing the wrong way. Rear ending and people running people off the road.
The accidents are not located in isolated areas. It’s everywhere. I turned the corner the other day and there’s a car up the light pole in Summerlin, it’s puzzling to try to figure out what happened. There are a ton of hit and runs in Las Vegas. Hit and run of cars and pedestrians. On my way from Summerlin to the McCarran airport and returning to my office off Tropicana and Buffalo I saw 8 near misses and 4 separate accidents. Which encompassed 35 miles worth of traveling.
Solution to this horrible increasing problem would be to the crappy drivers. Stop talking on the phone, stop texting while driving. Both of which are illegal in the state of NV. PAY ATTENTION to what you’re doing. Slow down, stop fighting with the people in your car. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t Smoke weed while driving or before getting in your car. Stop taking illegal drugs and driving. Respect other drivers. Geez, perhaps understand you’re driving a vehicle that is capable of killing and harming others and yourself. DRIVING is a serious event. Take it seriously.
Stay safe out there, Penny
