Driving You Crazy: No Sidewalk on Pecos Near Sunset

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - A viewer asks if pedestrians' safety is in danger due to the lack of a sidewalk on Pecos Road between Warm Springs Road and Sunset Road.

The area is intended to be rural – similar to an area profiled June 13 in a Driving You Crazy segment.

The viewer says the lack of a consistent sidewalk along Pecos Road makes it difficult and unsafe for pedestrians to travel.

This stretch of road is also a neighborhood preservation area. There is no curb, no streetlights and very little sidewalk, because that's how nearby residents want it.

Clark County officials say they can't install a sidewalk, because any changes in this area would be the responsibility of the adjacent property owners.

Since the homeowners have gone through the process with their town board and stakeholders to obtain that rural neighborhood designation, they've made it clear some areas will remain rural. In this case, that means no sidewalks.
