Accidental Deaths and Injuries in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area
According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, more fatal vehicle accidents occurred in the first half of 2022 than in the previous two decades combined. In the last year, there have been roughly 11% more fatal vehicle accidents, with Nevada having one of the largest percentage increases in the country. During the first six months of 2021, fatality and serious injury rates rose by at least 23% nationally and by about a quarter in Clark County. Despite recent increases in gasoline costs, many people, particularly tourists, continue to drive in Nevada’s major cities. In spite of growing costs, COVID-19 regulations, and lower traffic due to the pandemic, the number of fatal accidents seems to have increased rather than decreased during the last several years.
