Campus Police Hosts Forum at UNR, Stresses Pedestrian Safety

Posted: Updated:

The University of Nevada held their second annual Traffic Safety and Pedestrian Forum on Wednesday, in an effort to remind everyone public safety needs to be the focus at all times.

Todd Renwick with UNR Police Services said they discussed laws and spoke with the students and other members of the public about safety.

"It's so very beneficial for us in our planning, in areas we need to look at for safety and for our enforcement purposes as well. So, just getting that feedback and that two-way communication when we get to explain to them where we're, where we are going in the future and some of the things we want to accomplish."

Campus police do have a warning for motorists and pedestrians on - or near the campus. They ask that drivers obey the speed limits and traffic laws. Also, always use caution when traveling through campus roads because there are thousands of students walking around.

To those students walking around, they ask you to use the crosswalks and make sure to look around for cars before stepping off the sidewalk.

"When you have the university community within a community with our dense population, we want to be as cautious as we can and promote as much safety oriented stuff we can."

Distracted driving remains one of the biggest concerns on campus, especially cell phones.

Remember, do not talk on your cell phone unless you have a headset. It's illegal.
