The Annual Roadmap of State Highway Safety Laws Report has been released for 2020 that details each state’s traffic fatalities, accidents, and traffic safety laws.

The report showed that Nevada had an increase in traffic fatalities by 3.3% from 2019 to 2020, despite having less drivers on the road.

Nevada was given a traffic safety rating of red for 2021, leaving it among the bottom 12 states in the nation.

Although most fatalities on the road were caused by impairment and speeding, some Nevada traffic laws seem to be lagging behind other states in regards to safety.

Nevada is one of 16 states that is without a primary enforcement front seat belt law. The report also suggests that eight other Nevada laws need alteration to increase traffic safety.
