RebelSAFE Mobile App
RebelSAFE is the official mobile safety app of UNLV. Among the many features of the app to help keep the campus community safe, users can send their location via GPS to a friend if they are walking alone. They will be able to track your position and be notified when you've reached your destination safely. To download the free app, visit iTunes or the Google Play Store.
Drivers Beware! Did You Realize...
Alcohol and drugs can impair an individual's ability to walk safely just like they do a person's ability to drive safely. In fact, alcohol consumption by either the driver or the pedestrian was reported in 47% of all pedestrian fatalities, and contrary to popular belief, pedestrians were more likely to be drunk than drivers in these incidents. Of the pedestrians involved in such incidents, 33% had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. Of the drivers involved in fatal crashes, only 7% had a BAC of .08 or higher (less than one-third the rate for the pedestrians).
Know the Signs
- If the intersection has a pedestrian signal, press the button and wait for the signal’s "walk" indicator.
- A flashing "don't walk" signal means you should not start crossing the roadway. Pedestrians who have partially completed their crossing should finish crossing or proceed to a safety island.
- A steadily illuminated "don't walk" indicator means it is not safe to enter the roadway.
- Obey any and all pedestrian signals and always cross at marked crosswalks whenever possible.
