Bicycle accidents are prevalent in Nevada, despite warnings from authorities to obey traffic rules.
The Nevada law is very specific on this.
Motorists can be charged with reckless driving when at fault in any accident with a bicyclist.
Because of this, incidents like the hit-and-run on Ambassador Drive will be penalized as a misdemeanor or felony offense. In any case, failure to report accident will be subjected for driver’s license suspension.
When behind the wheel, it is important to stay alert and be aware of other vehicles on the road.
