Agenda note: DISCUSSION: Following introduction of the item, Commissioner Naft advised that exotic vehicle rentals were responsible for ten percent of traffic accident fatalities in Clark County. The Board was addressed by Andrew Bennett, from the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety which was a Division of Nevada State Police, who advised that speed was an issue on Nevada’s roadways; estimated that eight to twelve percent of Clark County fatal crashes involved a rented “luxury or exotic” vehicle; needed a definition of “luxury or exotic;” vehicles over 500 horsepower; speed and/or impairment was a factor in 95 percent of these crashes; and technology was available which may have prevented a majority of these crashes. In response to Commissioner Jones and Gibson, Andrew Bennett advised that there was a need for more enforcement, education, and engineering to mitigate speed as a factor in fatal crashes. Discussion followed regarding education, training, discussions were held with Business Licensing, costs associated with the road closures due to the emergency response to the crash, and responsibility for the costs. Staff was directed to draft an ordinance regarding exotic car rentals; and work with stakeholders on the parameters of the ordinance including speed, horsepower, impairment, technology, and liability.
