Most Frequent Causes of Auto Accidents in Nevada
Even though Nevada has lower death and injury rates than the national average, some people blame the state’s significant concentration of rural areas. However, things aren’t quite so simple in practice. Even if fatal incidents occur more frequently in urban areas, they nonetheless happen in quite high numbers in rural areas. After work, traffic on Nevada’s roadways peaks from 5 to 9 p.m. and then drops significantly between midnight and 6:30 a.m.
The death toll was highest between the hours of five and eleven at night.
