How to avoid getting a red light ticket in Nevada is another thing entirely, and here is some good advice from the good folks over at the Zero Fatalities campaign:
“In Nevada, as in other states, the main reason for all the unsafe driving at intersections is simple: people are in a hurry. Too often, the traffic signal’s yellow light has come to symbolize “hurry up” instead of “prepare to stop.”
WHAT YOU CAN DO
- Slow down.
- Stop on red and look right before turning on green.
- Look both ways before entering an intersection.
- Signal every turn and lane change.
- Make a complete stop at traffic signals and stop signs.
- Yield to other drivers and to bicyclists and pedestrians.
KNOW THE LAW
You are allowed to turn right on a red light after coming to a full stop, unless otherwise posted. You must be in the extreme right-hand lane and yield to pedestrians and all traffic moving through the intersection.
For left turns, more and more intersections have flashing yellow arrows. Here’s how they work:
- When flashing, a vehicle is allowed to cautiously enter an intersection only to make the turn indicated by the arrow, but the driver must first yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians, then proceed with caution.
- After it flashes, the yellow arrow becomes steady (non-flashing) or a green arrow. Treat the steady yellow arrow just like a standard yellow light—prepare to stop or safely clear the intersection before the red light appears.”
