Good to hear about businesses opening but the location is NOT in Summerlin.

Nightingale,

You have a very nice tally of "Reid Accomplishments," many of which are not solely attributable to Reid but OK.

Now, let me offer my perspective.

April 2009 After 15 years on the job I lost my job because of Reid. Over the last two years, Reid forced more than 2,000 of my co-workers out of their jobs. I was lucky to find work in Las Vegas(albeit at 30% less in salary and benefits than I was making), most of my co-workers had to leave town. Those are just the direct jobs that Reid lost, if you count all the indirect jobs the number is likely 3,000.

So, Nightingale, the way the numbers add up Reid seems to be behind.

Lericgoodman raises an excellent point.

By the photos it would appear that the bus was traveling on the wrong side of the road, the SUV swerved to the left to avoid it at the same time the bus swerved back into the proper lane. It might be possible for the rear of the bus to have jumped into the air and swung to the left upon impact - but I wouldn't bet on it.

@casinokid

Adam is correct and I am unaware of any location where the law is different.

The law treats bicycles as motor vehicles - you must travel in the same direction as all other traffic.

It is also illegal to ride on sidewalks - another poor alternative taught to kids.

I have come closer to hitting bicycles traveling against the traffic than I have ever come to bicycles traveling with traffic. The danger to the bicycle comes from cross traffic. When a car pulls into traffic they don't expect anything to be coming from the right at the speed of a bicycle and they are looking left to see the oncoming traffic - think about it.

All the legal talk aside - I have riden around Las Vegas as well as several other states. This town is very dangerous and there are only a few routes I would recommend for a rider. Dangers are not only inattentive drivers (major problem) but there are few roads with bike lanes or sufficient room on the shoulder to avoid cars.

I hope they nail the jerk in the truck.
