Las Vegas Police Cell Phone While Driving Controversy

By | 2016-04-22T00:20:58-07:00 April 22nd, 2016|Categories: Cellphones and Visual distractions, Online Legal Services|Tags: |

What can you do with a cellphone while driving? Well, in part it depends on if you’re a police officer or not. This facebook post has gotten a lot of attention for a picture allegedly showing a cop in Las Vegas driving with a cellphone in violation, perhaps, of specific statutes making it unlawful to use a handheld electronic device like a cell phone, tablet, or many other types of devices that are not physically affixed to the vehicle’s, for example on the dash, and used hands free. Of course, there are specific callouts for law enforcement officials to use in the course of their public safety duties. The average person does not have that kind of latitude. So what might this officer have been doing? He might have been doing who knows what, but we can’t imagine getting his call, text, or data log. He could claim it was something involved in his official business, and that would be the end of it. The problem is that no one wants a Nevada cell phone violation ticket. And when you do you want fight that Las Vegas cell phone ticket online, but that’s for a little later in this post. [...]

Las Vegas Police Focused on Distracted Driving Tickets

Keep your eyes on the road and off your cell phone, or any other distractions you can think of, is the message that the police are always trying to convey. They convey this with issuing distracted driving tickets to Las Vegas drivers. They convey this message with press releases. Their most recent press about the issue states that extra enforcement will be taking place this month – beginning a few days ago and continuing through until the 20th of this month. According to the release from the Las Vegas Metro Police, the reason for this special enforcement and targeting Las Vegas distracted drivers for traffic tickets is: “According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 3,179 people were killed and 431,000 were injured in motor vehicle collisions involving distracted drivers in 2014. Five seconds is the average time a driver’s eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55mph, that's enough time to drive the length of an entire football field blindfolded.” While an admirable goal, if you’re gotten one of these Nevada distracted driving citations you’re probably not real happy about it, and want to fight it online if you can. Look no further than [...]

Politeness And Contrition Often Effective Tools For Avoiding Las Vegas Speeding Tickets

Las Vegas speeding tickets can happen to anyone but some are more adept at overcoming those tickets than others. Southern Nevada is full of folks who attest that that can easily talk themselves out of tickets for speeding in Las Vegas. There are a number of law enforcement agencies in Southern Nevada and when members of those police forces get pulled over for an infraction, they are often let off by fellow officers from other agencies with verbal warnings. Las Vegas is also chock full of blackjack dealers, waiters, waitresses and showgirls. These are people who are often face to face with the public every day and are individuals who need to be able to think on their feet and subtly influence others to their whims. Recently, a Las Vegas showgirl detailed how she had recently talked herself out of a ticket for taking on a cell phone while driving, while at the same time revealing to the officer that pulled her over that she had recently gotten a warning for Clark County excessive speed. After the casino dancer was pulled over by a male police officer, she refused to admit that she had been talking on her cell phone [...]

A female Las Vegas resident was killed on Wednesday when the vehicle she was driving went out of control smashed into a retaining wall and streetlights on Russell Rd. The woman, 460-year old Angela Bair, was travelling at an excessive rate of speed when she was driving westward on Russell Rd.

The accident was determined by Las Vegas police to have been caused by speeding in Las Vegas.

Residential Neighborhood and Las Vegas Police Take Unique Approach To Reducing Speeding In Las Vegas

By | 2015-07-03T15:17:42-07:00 July 3rd, 2015|Categories: Cellphones and Visual distractions, General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Speeding|Tags: , , , , |

Las Vegas police and traffic authorities are always working to reduce speeding in Southern Nevada. This is especially true in residential neighborhoods. Many residential neighborhoods can have streets that connect freeway exits or that provide quicker, shorter routes than larger, more traveled streets and roads. When motorists take these shortcuts through residential neighborhoods, they often travel at high speeds - and endanger those living in those neighborhoods including children, the elderly, pets, pedestrians and bicyclists. The increased traffic and resulting potential for accidents also negatively impacts home values in those neighborhoods deemed as shortcuts. There are a number of solutions municipalities have used to reduce the ability for motorists to speed through neighborhoods on roads not intended for the traffic levels that come about once shortcuts are discovered. The solutions include increased police presence, lower residential speed limits, traffic calming installations like traffic islands, speed bumps and speed humps. One Las Vegas neighborhood that suffered from Las Vegas excessive speed problems had nearby traffic inlets changed. The neighborhood which is situated in the middle of Ann Rd, the 215 Beltway and Interstate 95 was experiencing significant traffic as people took the shortcut to get to different highways, a local Home [...]

A judge in Carson City postponed the trial by jury for a Democratic Assemblyman from Las Vegas, Richard Carrillo, who during the last legislative session, was arrested for driving under the influence and having a handgun on his person. Assemblyman Carrillo was sleeping in a parked car near the legislative building in the Silver State’s capital city. The trial was set for the 27th of July after the judge did not allow a motion by Assemblyman Richard Carrillo’s attorneys to dismiss the case for driving while intoxicated. Had Assemblyman Carrillo had his DUI arrest in Clark County, he could have hired the Nevada licensed traffic attorneys at Assemblyman Carrillo, from Southern Nevada’s Assembly District 18, was found by Carson City sheriff deputies asleep in the front seat of his car with the keys in the ignition and the car running. When found by deputies, the Las Vegas Assemblyman had his foot on the gas pedal and his hand on his car’s shift. The deputies then found a .22 pistol in the lawmaker’s pockets - and the pistol was loaded when it was discovered. Assemblyman Carrillo was given a sobriety tests, which registered at a 0.10% blood alcohol level - [...]

A Las Vegas DUI checkpoint on Thursday May 28th processed approximately 2500 drivers. 10 of those who went through the checkpoint received driving while intoxicated citations in Clark County. Eight additional drivers received tickets for traffic violations other than driving while intoxicated. Twenty six metro police officers worked the DUI checkpoint and the checkpoint started at 7 p.m. Thursday and ended at 3 a.m. Friday morning. The checkpoint was at Coran Ln. and Rancho Rd. Even though only 10 people were arrested for DUIs, 31 were tested for operating an automobile while drunk. The last Las Vegas DUI checkpoint was the weekend of the NFL Championship.

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.

A man accused of driving while intoxicated in Las Vegas has been booked on three counts due to a deadly accident last weekend. The man, N. Las Vegas resident, Troy Marez, aged 50, was booked for driving while intoxicated and causing a death and not yielding to oncoming traffic.

Driving While Using A Cell Phone In Las Vegas Can Cause Significant And Dangerous Distractions

By | 2015-04-16T17:28:37-07:00 April 16th, 2015|Categories: Cellphones and Visual distractions, Distraction on the Road: Texting, DUI, General Ticket Info|Tags: , , , , |

Why is driving while using a cell phone so dangerous? Everyone at sometime has done it. They’ve looked down when a text message has come in, they’ve tried to make an important phone call while on the road; some even check facebook statuses, messages and other notifications while they are on the road. The danger comes not from the looking at the cell phone, per se, but the distraction to the driver’s brain while he or she looks at his or her cell phone. As you drive, your brain is paying attention to hundreds of things - you speed, the speed of the automobile in front of you, any pedestrians on the road, the quality of the street, searching for police, any strange sounds the car might be making, knowing where to go and changes such as lights turning from green to red. Add in weather, and how that can affect reaction times - the use of a cell phone while driving in Las Vegas can distract someone just so much that you can’t react to a change in the road - a child running after a ball, someone cutting you off, the light turning from yellow to red. Other [...]

Even Relatives Of The Powerful and Famous Can Be Charged With Las Vegas DUI

Anyone can get a DUI in Southern Nevada - all you need to do is have a couple drinks and get behind the wheel. Often, when a DUI occurs in Las Vegas, there are injuries that are readily apparent, whether it is an automobile accident, damaged property or even the death of someone driving another vehicle, a pedestrian or even a passenger in the intoxicated driver’s car. In rare cases, however, it can take months for the injuries that can be attributed to drunk driving in Clark County to come to light. One arrest for driving while intoxicated from early February is now being linked to an injury of Nevada’s senior Senator, Senate Minority Leader, Harry Reid. In February, Senator Reid’s brother, Larry Reid, was arrested in connection with a DUI arrest in Boulder City, approximately 25 miles to the east of Las Vegas. In the arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol in Las Vegas, Mr. Larry Reid was cited for a number of additional violations of the law. Those violations include assault of an officer, possession of a weapon while under the influence of alcohol, not wearing a seatbelt and failure to keep to the right. Many [...]

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 [...]

Las Vegas Area Police Increase Enforcement of Nevada Cell Phone While Driving Laws

Cell phones, tablets and even wearable devices like Google Glass and the upcoming Apple iWatch have been boons to productivity, sharing of content and entertainment for everyone. Unfortunately, while these devices have generally improved life for all involved, using them while driving has increased the danger to pedestrians, bicyclists and other motorists on the road. Even though the Nevada legislature has increased penalties and passed numerous laws forbidding the practice of using mobile devices while driving, Southern Nevadans continually use their devices while they are behind the wheel, resulting in accidents, property damage and even injuries. To combat this, area police departments have been writing more tickets for Las Vegas distracted driving in an attempt to reduce number of Nevadans driving and using their mobile devices. Last Friday police in North Las Vegas wrote nearly 200 tickets for Southern Nevada distracted driving and other violations in a concerted law enforcement effort to increase awareness of the dangers of using a mobile device while driving. Some of the citations issued were also for speeding, reckless driving and not using due care in a crosswalk with pedestrians. Police have been concentrating on mobile device use while driving and know when individuals are [...]

Be careful driving around the valley this upcoming month if you’re someone who just help but fiddle with your phone. Police will be on the lookout to give people Las Vegas careless driving tickets for cell phone violations especially. Police patrols from the Las Vegas Metro Police force are going to be out in force and at particular intersections looking to give out Clark County distracted driving tickets. These patrols are going to be especially prevalent in the penultimate week of February. Don’t think for a second that this is the only week, though, or that this is the only traffic ticket Las Vegas Metro Police will be handing out. You can bet they’ll also be happy to bust you for a red light violation, speeding, failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk, or any other traffic infraction they see you or think they see you engaging in. The Metro Police’s Traffic Bureau is paying for these extra patrols with some grants coming through both the state and the feds. The bill is expected to run about $40,000 for just this special enforcement piece. If you’re busted by the Metro Traffic Bureau and want to fight your Las [...]

Reno Police Sergeant Arrested for Nevada DUI

DUIs can happen to anyone, including police officers. Last Saturday night, a Reno police officer, a sergeant no less, was pulled over, tested and booked for driving while intoxicated in Nevada. The 46-year old Reno police officer, Paul Sevcsik, was stopped at Evans Ave and 6th St. near downtown Reno. The police officer’s blood alcohol has not been sent to media outlets in Reno, Las Vegas, Northern California or Nevada. A number of news outlets attempted to contact Sergeant Svecsik, but unfortunately the Reno police office did not respond to reporters. If you have been arrested for felony or misdemeanor DUI in Las Vegas or anywhere in Southern Nevada, log onto today to start fighting your case. DUIs are so regrettable because whether you are in Reno, Sparks, Henderson or Las Vegas they are so preventable. Simply put, if you have been drinking, even more than one or two beers, why chance it? Depending on one’s age or the type of license one has, you can get a DUI simply with a blood alcohol level of .02%. Now yes, this is a blood alcohol level for people who are under 21 years of age, but even smaller teens who [...]

Day 2 Of Electric Daisy Carnival Results In One Las Vegas DUI

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 [...]

Neighborhood Calls For More Las Vegas Speeding Tickets

Las Vegas has always been a car town. We aren’t like Boston or lower Manhattan, with small streets and sidewalks; our city wasn’t founded in the 1600s and had to adapt to cars traipsing around buildings and foundations that have stood for centuries. Instead, Las Vegas was founded in 1905 but was a much smaller town until the 1930s and 1940s. Since Vegas has grown up with cars as the main form of transportation, our city wasn’t designed for pedestrians and public transportation. This is why Las Vegas has always had trouble with safe streets and neighborhoods for pedestrians and families. The residents of the Las Vegas neighborhood near Alta Drive, Decatur Blvd and Hayes Place are calling for Las Vegas police to increase police presence, write more Las Vegas speeding tickets and even install more traffic safety measures. One of the residents of that area of Las Vegas, Edward Kalata, has been increasingly alarmed by the speed of drivers through the neighborhood. Mr. Kalata states that drivers often drive through the neighborhood to avoid traffic and speed lights on higher trafficked streets. Mr. Kalata is asking that police write more tickets for Southern Nevada speeding, install more speed limit [...]

Police are at it again: targeting busy and dangerous intersections with extra and sneaky enforcement to catch drivers driving distracted or speeding in North Las Vegas. These enforcement efforts have been moving all around the Las Vegas Valley in recent months; we’ve written about different ones in Henderson, Las Vegas, and all over Clark County in the past. The purpose of these enforcement zones, say police, is to cut down on the number of injury accidents and car crashes in North Las Vegas by making drivers pay more attention and follow the laws in more cases. If you’re caught in one of these enforcement zones and issued a ticket for distracted driving or speeding in North Las Vegas, and want to avoid traffic court, a court appearance and points on your license, all without having to leave the comfort of your home, visit today to get started handling your traffic citation today. The way these enforcement zones work is tricky. Police know that if people see a cop car sitting at an intersection, then people can often slow down or put down their cell phone that they’ve been illegally using before the cop sees them breaking the law. So [...]
