In a new report, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety revealed that most drivers in Nevada and across the US don't understand the limitations of semiautonomous vehicles. As a result, many people are misusing the cars' semiautomated features and endangering themselves and other motorists.
Entrepreneurs in Nevada and elsewhere will need to know where they will get the capital needed to operate their companies. One option is to fund operations with a credit card in the owner's name. Ideally, the credit card will be used to buy materials or other costs that will be covered when a job is completed. Another option is to ask family members or friends to loan money or buy equity in the business.
It isn't uncommon for passenger vehicles to share roads with those who are walking or riding their bikes. Therefore, both drivers and pedestrians need to account for each other when using roadways in Nevada and throughout the country. Pedestrians can help keep themselves safe by using a sidewalk and by following all applicable traffic laws. If there is no sidewalk, individuals should walk facing traffic to increase their visibility.
Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed a bill into law on June 3 that allows local authorities in the Silver State to authorize companies like Bird and Lime to operate electric scooter sharing programs. The skateboard-sized machines can travel at speeds of up to 15 mph and be rented for as little as $1, but they have also been linked to worrying rises in serious head injuries.
When companies and artists in Nevada decide to work together, the terms of a contract govern how the relationship moves forward. However, disputes can arise about a contract later on, especially when terms such as non-disclosure, non-disparagement or non-competition are involved. One example of such a dispute is being played out between the estate of late singer Michael Jackson and TV network HBO. Jackson's estate sued HBO for $100 million after the cable channel aired a documentary entitled "Leaving Neverland," which focuses on allegations of child abuse and pedophilia against the performer. The documentary focuses on the stories of two men who say they were abused by Jackson during his life.
Though modern vehicles are safer than ever, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety believes that there is one area that could do with improvement: rear-seat safety. Nevada residents should know that the increase in ride-hailing services complicates matters. Studies show that more people neglect their seat belts when riding in hired vehicles than they do in their private vehicles.
In Nevada, as elsewhere in the nation, auto accident risk goes up during the summer, especially among teen drivers. Ford Motor Company says that the 100 days between Memorial Day (the unofficial start of summer) and Labor Day are a dangerous time for teens. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety goes so far as to call this the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers.
People in Las Vegas may suffer unexpected accidents and injuries in the most unlikely of locations, including the parking lot of their workplace, shopping center or entertainment destination. Business owners have a responsibility to create a safe environment for their employees, customers and guests, and that responsibility extends to their parking lots and garages as well. Every year, over 50,000 car accidents take place in parking areas. These are not all small fender-benders; they are linked to over 500 annual deaths and 60,000 injuries.
