Is it Sin City, or crowd city? Las Vegas is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States, and people come from all around the world to see the shows, eat the food, get in on the betting, and generally let loose. As a result, groups shuffle around the Strip, packed together as they cross streets, hail taxis, or meet Ubers, and confusion is the order of the day.
Walking along Arizona streets can be one of the most dangerous things you do, according to recent data released by the state’s Department of Transportation. In fact, being hit by a car is one of the top 20 causes of death for people living in Arizona. It often happens in big cities, and other studies show that cities like Phoenix are slow to remedy this danger.
On April 1, 2019, swap your loafers for sneakers and participate in Walk to Work Day! What began as a promotion in a magazine in 2004, is now promoted by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The goal of the initiative is to increase awareness about the many benefits of walking.
A Glendale student was struck and injured by a car while she was walking to school on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, at the intersection of 47th and Northern avenues. She is a student at Apollo High School and was crossing within the crosswalk. It is unclear why the driver didn’t yield to her.
The number of people who use scooters to get to and from work, school and shopping areas are steadily increasing each day. Scooters are an efficient way to get around town, as they cost less to operate than cars and require less physical exertion than bicycles. More and more people are taking them to work, and more and more students are using them to get to class.
Throughout the holiday season, millions of people will be rushing out to buy gifts for their families and friends. Thousands of them will be doing so right here in Phoenix. While the season of giving can be an exciting time, these trips to retail spaces can also be dangerous.
We at The Husband and Wife Law Team don’t just represent pedestrians and passengers. We represent people who have been hurt while out jogging for exercise or training for their next marathon in Phoenix. While some runners choose to run on trails away from traffic, many put in the miles on the pavement near busy intersections. And when runners are hit by cars, the results can be very serious or even fatal.
Every morning and throughout the day, thousands of parents and caretakers across Arizona strap their children into strollers, pack a snack and water bottle, and hit the pavement to get some exercise. Running with strollers is a great way to get your kids outside, get some exercise, and spend time together.
No matter what city you live in, Arizona is a beautiful place to experience on foot. But whether you’re making your way to the nearest hiking trail or you’re just trying to get to work on time, there are rules of the road for pedestrians just as there are for motor vehicles and cyclists. It’s important for pedestrians to review these rules so they can make sure they’re staying within the law.
The United States saw a nationwide rise in pedestrian deaths in 2016.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), there was an increase of 25% between 2010 and 2015. The report published by GHSA showed that the number of fatalities in the first half of 2016 was 7% higher than reported at the same time in 2015. The GHSA estimated that the total number of pedestrians killed in traffic accidents in 2016 was an 11% increase overall from 2015.
