Las Vegas Texting and Driving Focus for Police

By | 2016-11-07T23:23:14-07:00 November 7th, 2016|Categories: Distraction on the Road: Texting, Online Legal Services|Tags: , , |

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.

Cell Phone Ticket in Nevada — Distracted Driving

By | 2016-07-23T01:36:15-07:00 July 23rd, 2016|Categories: Distraction on the Road: Texting|Tags: , |

Distracted Driving is the name of the most recent gain for a current enforcement focus that the Nevada Highway Patrol is presently in the midst of. In pushing out press info on this program, spokespeople for the highway patrol discussed the first day’s haul of 90 tickets written for distracted driving in Nevada. That’s a whole lot of people’s days just really sent in a very different direction than they were likely hoping. We certainly understand the need for police action to curb the number of nasty car crashes on Nevada’s highways, we prefer to fight for the people who are given tickets and to help them fight Clark County distracted driving citations online. One thing that the spokesperson highlighted that may not be widely known is that smart watches can get you that same cell phone ticket if you’re dialing or really using it at all. They are all the same thing: a Nevada distracted driving violation. And even if they didn’t, it would be a moot point as the spokesperson mentioned that it is treated like a cellular device in their eyes anyway. The spokesperson, by the way, is one Jason Buratczuk, a trooper with the NHP. Beyond [...]

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 [...]

Henderson police, in conjunction with the State of Nevada, increased traffic patrols in an effort to improve traffic safety, cited and or arrested nearly 393 drivers, passengers and even pedestrians in the nearly two week effort. Three Henderson DUI tickets were also written during the enforcement efforts. The program which finished July 13th and started July 2nd, resulted in almost 346 cars, trucks and motorcycles pulled over and tickets written. 182 of the tickets written were for Clark County speeding. Running red lights resulted in 11 tickets. 28 drivers were ticketed for not yielding to other drivers when street signs instructed them to do so. The traffic enforcement effort was funded by a joint federal and state Joining Forces grant. The grant, which was $107,500 was used to pay for officer overtime and consumables used in the increased traffic enforcement. Those consumables include gasoline, rubber gloves and pipettes used by breathalyzers. Joining Forces is designed to help urban communities reduce the deaths associated with dangerous and distracted driving. The program also works to educate pedestrians in traffic safety so that the deadly rising count of pedestrian deaths can be curbed in the Silver State. Joining Forces is a State of [...]

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.

As the summer begins, area police departments are increasing the enforcement of speeding in Las Vegas for the first three weeks of June. Drivers in Southern Nevada are now being targeted by saturation patrols, in neighborhoods and streets where excessive speed in Clark County complaints are high. Flouting the speed limit is said to be the cause of over 30% of all fatal automobile crashes in the US. This statistic was provided by the United States Highway Safety administration. To fund the speeding abatement effort, the city of Henderson was awarded a grant of just over $107,000. The grant was from the Joining Forces grant program from the State of Nevada. Deputies of the Sheriff of Douglas County are working with the sheriff’s department of Lyon County are also increasing enforcement of traffic infractions with funding from a Joining Forces grant as well.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Police are once again out in force handing out careless driving tickets in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas to people who fail to stop for pedestrians in marked crosswalks. This is not an uncommon thing for police in the Las Vegas area to focus on, as pedestrian deaths have often been a major problem in the area. Certainly it is not all the fault of drivers, and police are aware of this. They also target pedestrians during these enforcement crackdowns, issuing citations for jay walking and the like. The way these traffic enforcement often work is through the use of a decoy. Whichever department or departments are involved in the program will use someone, usually a police officer, to try to catch people in the act of not stopping for a pedestrian crossing the road. The decoy usually wears something bright and highly visible, sometimes wearing something quite outlandish like a Halloween-type costume. They then begin to cross the road. Anyone who doesn’t stop is given a careless driving citation in Southern Nevada. Police will also just camp out at dangerous intersections and wait and watch, seeing which drivers fail to stop for normal pedestrians. They usually pick these [...]

Could you get a traffic ticket in Las Vegas for eating a hamburger? It all depends on what you are driving like and who sees you. We bring this up as we read the Las Vegas news about this distracted driving ticket given to a man in Cobb County, Georgia. It does happen that police will issue distracted driving tickets for eating, it is something that we here at have seen from our clients, that we have helped them with. It really all depends on the officer and the driver in that situation. Most people eat when they’re driving. Maybe not all the time, but often. Finishing breakfast on your way to work, finishing lunch on your way back from your break. Eating a snack on your way in between meetings or to pick up the kids. It happens.

It becomes distracted driving when it causes you to lose your lane, speed, miss and ignore a traffic sign, or run a red light, for just a few examples. That’s where [...]

When the Nevada legislature and Governor Brian Sandoval agreed to the 2011 ban on cell phone use while driving in Nevada, many wondered what the details of the bill was and whether or not it would have an influence on Las Vegas pedestrian fatalities and other Nevada traffic accidents. The penalties from the law are relatively simple. The first time you are caught driving while on a cell phone in Nevada, the fine is $50. The second offense is $100 and the third time you are ticketed for driving on a cell phone in Clark County, the fine rises to $250. There are a number of ways you can get a ticket for driving while on your cell phone in Las Vegas and a number of ways to avoid a ticket. Talking on a phone while you are behind the wheel is the most obvious way to be ticketed under the new law. Another way is to be texting or looking at the mobile web while driving. Many are surprised that the law also prevents them from texting or using your phone while at a stop light in Las Vegas. Authorities suggest that each time a driver uses his or [...]

While much has been written about the rash of Las Vegas pedestrian injuries in 2012, there is another grim traffic statistic from 2012 that illustrated just how dangerous the roads and highways across Clark County have become. In 2012, Clark County saw an increase of 45% in highway fatalities, with an increase of 170 in 2012 compared to 2011’s total of 117. These high accident totals in Las Vegas also increased the Silver State’s pedestrian fatality numbers by 5%, growing them from 246 Nevada road deaths in 2011 to 258 traffic deaths in 2012. Police are warning all drivers to drive safely, pay attention to roads, not drink and drive or drive impaired by any other substance other than alcohol and drive without speeding in Las Vegas. To combat the rise in fatalities, Las Vegas area transit agencies, police departments, hospitals, healthcare organizations, car insurance companies and even non-profits are taking steps to help reduce the number of traffic fatalities in Southern Nevada. Las Vegas Metro’s chief of police is requesting a 2.5% increase in sales taxes to go directly to law enforcement. The extra money will put more police officers on Las Vegas and Clark County streets ensure that [...]
