The story copy...
Nevada is experiencing a deadly epidemic. Pedestrians in our state are dying from vehicular collisions at an alarming rate. In fact, more people are being killed while crossing the street than by many other common fatal diseases-including HIV, breast cancer and influenza, just to name a few.
ACTIONS THAT CONTRIBUTE THE MOST TO FATALITIES:
Always be sure to make eye contact with oncoming drivers when crossing the road to make sure they see you.
Don't let headphones, cell phones or other devices divert your attention when crossing the road.
Make sure you pause a moment and look both ways when crossing the road to stay alert and alive.
Follow directions from signs and signals and only use designated crossing areas to keep yourself safe.
If you're walking with children, be sure to remain alert and help them cross safely.
Wear reflective, bright or noticeable clothing if you know you'll be crossing the road when walking.
Look for pedestrians - expect to see them at corners and marked mid-block crossings and stop for them when they cross the street.
Don't pass a car stopped for pedestrians - it's against the law, and it's highly dangerous for those crossing the street.
The faster you're going, the longer it takes to react and brake. Slow down when you're in an area where pedestrians are likely to be.
Stop on red, look right before turning on green and follow other traffic signals to ensure the safety of crossing pedestrians.
The text/call/tweet can wait. Don't let your phone or anything else distract you from focusing on the road and those around you.
Don't risk getting behind the wheel when impaired - for your own safety and the safety of other drivers and pedestrians.
