Are Las Vegas DUI Checkpoints Effective?

By | 2015-08-26T10:26:58-07:00 August 26th, 2015|Categories: Ask The Traffic Attorney, DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News|Tags: , , |

Are Las Vegas DUI checkpoints an effective tool for combating driving while intoxicated in Las Vegas? With the traditional end-of-summer three-day-weekend, Labor Day, around the corner, Las Vegas police are gearing up to combat drivers hitting the road while drunk after the weekend’s barbeques and parties. Those efforts will all be funded, in part, by a joint federal and state grant program, Joining Forces. DUI checkpoints will be set up across the Southern Valleys, but how effective are these checkpoints in fighting Clark County DUI? The efficacy of DUI checkpoints can easily be countered. In Indiana’s Hamilton County their DUI checkpoints in 2013 had an arrest rate for drink driving of less that 4%. In 2014, A CO DUI checkpoint inspected 1500 automobiles, motorcycles and trucks. Of those 1500 drivers checked, only 1% were arrested for driving while intoxicated. In the year from Oct. 2010 to Sept. 2011, West Virginia road blocks pulled over approximately 130,000 drivers. From those 130,000 inspections, 3.2% of the drivers were arrested for driving while intoxicated. Why do DUI checkpoints have such low rates of arresting drunk drivers? For one, In Nevada, police must post the area the DUI checkpoint will be held. When these [...]

A N. Las Vegas traffic enforcement effort took place just at the start of the Memorial Day weekend. 200 people were stopped for traffic violations at the Craig Rd. The Southern Nevada speeding ticket event was jointly funded by the United States Transportation Agency and the State of Nevada’s Department of Transportation via the Joining Forces grant program. Police stopped 226 automobiles and wrote 239 tickets. Warnings were given to 118 drivers. Excessive speed in Las Vegas citations were given too 100 drivers. In 2015, 10 speeding enforcement events have been held. The events are used to mitigate driving without a seatbelt, increasing pedestrian safety, reducing speeding, curbing distracted driving and cell phone use while driving and finally catching those who are driving while intoxicated.

The police departments and officers who are chosen to participate in these programs have shown particular interest and skill in traffic safety ticketing. The Silver State has even received national awards for the degree of coordination between state and local governments through the program. The [...]

We constantly say that Las Vegas DUI citations can happen to everyone and are often surprised by how true. Last weekend, a prominent and public face of Governor Sandoval’s wildly popular administration was arrested Friday evening for driving while intoxicated. The communications director for the Governor’s office, 29-year old Mari St. Martin was cited Friday for the DUI. Ms. St. Martin was pulled over when police saw her driving in the incorrect direction on a one way street. The governor, in a statement, expressed his disappointment in Ms. St. Marin and praised Reno police and Nevada Highway Patrol for their part in the arrest. For her part, the communications director for the Sandoval Administration released her own statement apologizing for the infraction and promised to cooperate with any and all investigations. Ms. St. Martin was raised in Ely, NV and had previously worked on campaigns and even Nevada offices of two prominent Republican members of the Nevada congressional delegation, Senator Heller and Representative Heck. Ms. Martin graduated from UNLV and also had worked for a number of Las Vegas public relations and marketing firms. Ms. St. Martin in 2012 ran for Nevada State Senate in Senate District 9. Ms. Martin, [...]

Texas Red Light Ticket Laws Differ From Las Vegas Red Light Ticket Citations

Texas lawmakers are considering statues for red light cameras in the Lone Star State. The bill limiting the use of red light cameras has passed the Texas senate but still needs to pass the lower house of the Texas legislature and be signed by the Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott. Many Texas cities have hired companies that then paid to install the cameras, which then right tickets to red light violators for $75 each. These tickets have generated millions of dollars for both the companies and the cities that have installed them. Texas lawmakers have cited research that shows that the red light cameras do not improve traffic safety. The alternative proposed by the legislature in Texas is that red light cameras would be confined to state and interstate roads that take tolls. Another complaint of Texas red light cameras is that they do not allow those accused of crimes to have their day in court and face those who accuse them. If you receive a red light camera ticket in Las Vegas, it is important to know that that Silver State’s laws governing the technology vary significantly from either current Texas law or rules currently proposed by Texas senators.

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the United States’ biggest drinking holidays – it’s also one of the biggest days of the year for DUIs. In Las Vegas, America’s party capital, St. Patrick’s Day brings people from across the country, the world and Nevada to celebrate the driving out of snakes from Ireland.

Nevada Senator Proposed Bill To Raise Las Vegas Speed Limit

The NV state Senator from Sparks, Don Gustavson, yesterday pitched a bill in the Nevada Senate Committee on Transportation to raise the maximum state speed limit to 85 miles per hour. The current maximum speed limit in Nevada is 75 mph. The maximum speed limit is applied in areas with low population density and with low highway traffic – and is general not applicable in the denser populated areas of the Silver State, Las Vegas and Reno/Sparks municipality. The bill must still overcome a number of legislative hurdles before becoming a law including passage through the Senate transportation committee and the Nevada Senate. The bill would then be introduced in the Nevada Assembly Transportation committee where it would again be debated and as in yesterday’s Senate transportation committee, the bill would then come up for public comment. After passing the Assembly Transportation committee, the bill would then go up before a vote before the Nevada Assembly. Once passed this legislative body, if any differences exist between the Senate and Assembly versions of the bill, it would then be heard by a conference committee of the Assembly and the Senate. That committee would negotiate the differences and then the revised, agreed [...]

Bicycle Related Infractions May Result in Las Vegas Careless Driving Citations

Not only can motorists be ticketed in some Nevada bicycling laws, but so can bicyclists! Traffic laws in Southern Nevada have been expanded in response to the increasing incidences of Las Vegas pedestrian accidents since 2010. Pedestrian and bicycle accidents happen so frequently in Las Vegas because the city was designed not for pedestrians, horses and buggies like older cities such as Boston, Providence and San Francisco, but instead for car transportation. Instead of quaint two lane roads with some parking, Las Vegas has 6-lane and 8-lane roads that drivers can travel at speeds up to 55 miles per hour – and those are motorists that are obeying the speed limit. Those who violate bicycle safety laws in Las Vegas are ticketed for Careless driving in Las Vegas. Some Nevada laws treat bicyclists as vehicles on the road, other laws treat bicyclists as pedestrians. For example, if you are attempting to take a left and a bicyclist is in a cross walk, you can be ticketed with driving carelessly in Southern Nevada by crossing the crosswalk while the bicyclist is still in it – regardless of where the cyclist is in the cross walk. Laws that treat cyclists like vehicles [...]

Last Friday, a Southern Nevada assemblyman was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Carson City. The Assembly representative from District 18 in Las Vegas was picked up by Carson City police at 3am Friday morning in the front seat of his parked car with his hand on the stick shift and his right foot on the gas pedal and the engine on and heater running. Assemblyman Carrillo, a holder of a conceal weapons permit for Nevada, notified police he had a loaded handgun in the glove compartment of his automobile. The Assemblyman from District 18 was booked on driving while intoxicated in Nevada and returned to work on Tuesday morning, March 3rd. Mr. Carrillo posted bail of $3,000 with Carson City traffic court. There are a number of DUI instances where the arrested individual was not driving their automobile, per se, but instead, sleeping in their vehicle. In colder climes, or even the Las Vegas desert, which can fall to low temperatures in the winter months, those individuals have been busted because they have turned on their cars to ensure the heater is on and they don’t freeze. Unfortunately, law enforcement still consider this a Nevada DUI offense as it is [...]

Nevada Senate Hears Nevada Pedestrian Safety Bill

The State of Nevada Senate Transportation Committee today heard a bill (SB144) that would increase penalties for those who drive through crosswalks when pedestrians are present. The bill, sponsored by Senators Parks, Manendo, Woodhouse and Spearman, was not voted on but did take the first steps in becoming a law. Before the bill becomes a law, which would increase Nevada reckless driving penalties when drivers go through a cross walk when a pedestrian is present, the bill must receive another hearing and vote in the Senate transportation committee, be voted on and pass the state Senate, be heard by the Assembly Transportation committee, pass the vote of the Assembly Transportation committee and then pass a vote of the entire Assembly. After the bill has passed all of those votes, if there are differences between the Senate and Assembly versions of the bill, it will need to go to conference committee and then approved a second time by both the Senate and the Assembly. After that, the SB144 will need to be signed by Governor Sandoval. In addition to increasing fines for violating some crosswalks, the bill also doubles fines for exceeding the speed limit in a zone designated to have [...]

Las Vegas is not an old world city like Boston, San Francisco or even The Village in New York City. Our town did not grow up considering pedestrians, horses and carriages. Since Las Vegas grew up during the 20th Century, the highways, roads and streets in Las Vegas were designed for cars and some think the most amount of cars as possible as once. This means elevated highways with on ramps and off ramps merging onto city surface streets, 6-lane surface highways with speed limits up to 55 miles per hour, some without sidewalks, intersections without left turn lanes or left turn traffic lights. The anarchy that can be Las Vegas roads can lead to many traffic accidents, pedestrian deaths and more. Because of that, Las Vegas police have been working diligently to reduce traffic incidents and fatalities in Sin City. To this end, Southern Nevada police departments are developing increasingly creative and topical ways to influence people to stop speeding in Las Vegas.   This January, leading into the biggest football game of the year, in their attempt to alert drivers to the dangers of violating speed limits in Clark County, the Metro police department spoofed the deflategate controversy [...]

After two nights and nearly 270,000 attendees, the Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend in Las Vegas resulted in relatively few arrests and hospitalizations. The annual electronic dance music festival featured not only over 120 music acts in its first two days, it also had 20 art displays, five gigantic Ferris wheels and 30 carnival rides! On Saturday alone, 311 people were rushed to the hospital with a multitude of ailments including dehydration, alcohol poisoning and drug overdoses. The carnival runs from approximately 7pm to 5.30 in the morning each day – Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Las Vegas police stated that there were five automobile accidents, three Las Vegas traffic tickets and one citation for driving while under the influence in Las Vegas. Events such as the Electric Daisy Carnival are often feared for bringing crowds too large, drug overdoses and even DUIs in Nevada. For the large number of people who attended the event on Friday and Saturday only 22 arrests on Saturday evening were relatively small. While one person did receive a Clark County DUI citation, the other arrests were mostly for the possession of controlled substance. Two people were arrests for misdemeanors and 18 people received misdemeanor [...]

Do you ever feel like lawyers, judges, and legal professionals in general are speaking another language? If you’ve ever been in court, or even had a ticket and had to go to traffic court, you’ve probably had that experience. If you’re trying to fight a traffic ticket in Las Vegas by yourself, you may have gotten confused by the legalese they were speaking, and just thrown in the towel and paid the fine in disgust. For instance, take the new “clarifications” issued by the Las Vegas traffic court in a Traffic Bench-Bar Committee meeting. These clarifications are anything but clear to the non-legal professional, they sound like gobbledygook, talking about rolling three year reviews, bulk traffic court sessions, referees, mandatory traffic school and requirements that just came into effect for that, and how old citations will be included in the rolling review of three years, or not, and what dates certain new requirements come into effect that are covered in these new laws governing the disposition of these matters. Head hurt yet? That’s why you need experienced legal professionals like the ones we have at 24hourticketpower.com to fight your Clark County traffic ticket online – meaning you don’t have to [...]

I-11 May Mean More Speeding Tickets in Southern Nevada

Exciting news has been percolating in our area of the country. For a long time, it has been hard for residents of Phoenix to get to Las Vegas, and vice versa, and hard for residents of Las Vegas to get to Reno, and vice versa. And of course, harder still for people or business like commercial trucks to get to points farther away but through the routes between any of those cities, given that there is not an effective highway system between those places, nor a true interstate system at all. Las Vegas and Phoenix, in fact, are the two largest neighboring cities in the United States that are not connected by a true interstate. Residents and businesses have longed for this connection for a long time. But beware: new interstate can mean more open and wide roadway between far away destinations, which can mean more speeding tickets in Southern Nevada. Who knows what the speed limits will even be on the proposed interstate, given that it will pass through some fairly desolate and straight-away areas. Sometimes, the higher the limit, the easier it is to let a lead foot get away from you. If you’re given a speeding ticket [...]
