Hit-and-Run Drivers in Las Vegas Accidents
Many drivers flee the scene of an accident to escape legal repercussions for causing an incident. People who conduct “hit-skips” or “hit-and-runs” are negligent drivers who cause accidents involving other motorists that result in major bodily harm or property damage, and then flee the scene.
According to data compiled by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, the number of hit-and-run incidents skyrocketed in 2017. According to the data, a hit-and-run happens once per minute in the USA. Since 2006, the average number of hit-and-runs per year has increased to over 670,000. The population has increased drastically since this time last year. There will likely be 2,000 such fatalities in 2016, a 62% increase from 2009. The hit-and-run incidence rate has increased at a yearly rate of 8% during the last decade.
In the state of Nevada, a misdemeanor penalty is possible for any motorist who leaves the scene of an accident. If convicted, these motorists face a maximum of six months in prison and a $2,000 fine.
