If you live in Las Vegas, there is a fair chance that you or close family members depend on tourism for your income.
While tourism is crucial to the area, visitors from out of town might not be the safest drivers. Here is why:
They could be drunk
Las Vegas has a bustling nightlife. People can easily get carried away and drink more than they realize. While many stay in hotels on site so they won’t need to drive, others might have opted for cheaper accommodation that is further afield and rely on their car to get there.
Drinking late into the night can also mean there will be people driving home or to the airport the next day when they still have a significant amount of alcohol in their bloodstream. This makes them more likely to crash.
They could be exhausted
Many places stay open 24/7. Yet you cannot stay awake forever. The lack of sleep will eventually catch up, and it may cause someone to drift off at the wheel and crash into you.
They could be distracted by the sites
It’s natural to want to stare out the window when you go somewhere new: Yet it can also be dangerously distracting. Whether someone is enjoying the landscape as they approach the Grand Canyon, marveling at the high-rise resorts of the city or reading their attention-grabbing billboards, their eyes are not on the road.
If an out-of-town visitor injures you in a crash, seek legal help to examine how they might have been at fault. Doing so will be crucial to get the compensation you need.
