Texting and driving tickets in Las Vegas can cost you. That’s what the Las Vegas Metro Police are focusing on getting the word out on, and even officers across the state. Per a release from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, from now until the 13th of this month they will be focusing on texting and driving. We’ll take you straight to their press release on texting and driving tickets in Las Vegas:
“Officers Remind Residents U Drive, U Text, U Pay! Law Enforcement Statewide focus on Distracted Drivers Las Vegas, Nevada – Law enforcement agencies statewide will be Joining Forces and focusing on Distracted Drivers Nov 2 -13, 2016. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will be working diligently to urge motorists to keep your eyes on the road and put away cell phones or other items that cause distractions. On average texting takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds. When traveling at 55mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that traffic deaths rose 10.4 percent in the first half of 2016 over 2015. That means 1,665 more deaths across the country in six months. And it follows a 7 percent increase in 2015 over 2014, meaning this is a trend. The problem is distracted driving. Far too many of us are fiddling with our phones as we hurtle down the road. Please remember that the phone call or text can wait until you have arrived at your destination safely. “There have been several studies lately demonstrating that distracted drivers using their cellular phone exhibit similar driving behaviors as of a drunk or impaired drivers. Drivers using their phones are slow to respond to traffic control devices, drifting and swerving in the travel lane and drive too slow or too fast for traffic conditions. Drivers texting while operating a motor vehicle are showing symptoms of a driver with a BAC of .08.” said Sergeant Kisfalvi from LVMPD’s Traffic Bureau.
