Despite the increasing popularity of bicycling in the Las Vegas area, it remains dangerous. Several injuries and fatalities in recent years demonstrate this point. By aiming to improve the situation, the local transportation authority wants to promote safe bicycle ridership and culture, yielding numerous positive outcomes for several groups of stakeholders. To help bolster such efforts, we examine many of the ethical dimensions involved in this situation and invite readers to explore an imaginative “thought experiment.” This exercise proposes the idea of building an elevated bicycle path along the world-famous Las Vegas Strip to bolster the region’s micro-mobility goals.
