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.

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 [...]

In particular, night vision drastically reduces as you age. A person’s peripheral vision also declines as they get older. These factors are not helped when an older driver’s concentration and reaction times also deteriorate. All of this can lead to confusion when an older driver enters a congested intersection or needs to make drastic decisions behind the wheel. If you are an older driver, who has been cited after a Las Vegas automobile accident, contact 24hourticketpower.com to fight or fix your ticket today.
