Las Vegas Metro DUI checkpoint final numbers

By | 2017-03-23T20:57:31-07:00 March 23rd, 2017|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: , |

The verdict is in, at least in so far as we now have numbers for DUI arrests in Las Vegas for one specific DUI checkpoint. This is the checkpoint we mentioned was coming over St. Patrick’s Day. And really, we didn’t need to mention it was coming, at least for regular readers of this blog. Big holidays, especially ones so intimately wound with drinking, always bring out a Las Vegas Metro Police checkpoint for driving under the influence. The numbers are in, and you can see them below in the Las Vegas Metro Police press release on the DUI checkpoint. The numbers are staggering, as always. Many people pass through, a large number are tested, but only a dozen arrested. As it says in the release, it took 38 police department staff members to man the checkpoint. 24hourticketpower.com gives you a convenient, online way to fight a DUI charge in Nevada. If you were charged that night, or any other night, visit us today. Driving under the influence convictions are expensive, time consuming, and hugely bothersome. We will make them go away completely if we can, and get them knocked down if we cannot get the charge fully dismissed. 24hourticketpower.com [...]

Bill Heard to Change Marijuana DUI Arrest Testing

By | 2017-03-08T22:51:17-07:00 March 8th, 2017|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Marijuana DUI|Tags: , |

We’ve told you it was coming, and it has. It, in this case, is a bill to change how Nevada marijuana DUI arrests are made, based on how the DUI is calculated. Basically, almost everyone agrees that the way marijuana DUIs are measured in Nevada is worthless. You can be sober, and have been sober for quite some time, and still the test would consider you driving under the influence if you had used marijuana at all recently because the current test measures a level in your blood that does not correspond with impairment. Now, that test is still valid and still how you would be arrested right now. It’s important to remember that the law hasn’t changed yet, so if you’re arrested for a marijuana DUI in Nevada 24hourticketpower.com is the best online resource for you to get legal help with an arrest. We are available day or night. Best of all, 24hourticketpower.com stays up to date on all changes in the law, even ones that haven’t happened yet but are making their way through the legislature like this one. Remember that 24hourticketpower.com is the best way to fight a Nevada DUI, whether for marijuana, alcohol, or prescription drugs. [...]

Beer saves driver from Las Vegas speeding ticket

By | 2017-03-01T21:00:30-07:00 March 1st, 2017|Categories: Las Vegas Legal News, Speeding|Tags: , |

This is certainly a unique way of getting out of a speeding ticket. Of all things, it was beer that got this driver out of a Las Vegas speeding ticket. These are not words we are used to writing, but read on if you will. A driver, pulled over by the police for speeding, expects a ticket. They will certainly and rightfully try to talk their way out. To use every different kind of line, excuse, emotional tinge to their story, bare honesty and apology, you name it. Sometimes that gets folks out of a traffic ticket, sometimes it does not. In reality it often has very little to do with whether a police officer will give you a warning or not. They will look up your driving history, judge by the conditions, and more. Sometimes it boils down to how they’re feeling that day, sometimes there are traffic ticket quotas and sometimes, yes, your tack and story and demeanor or something else can inspire a Las Vegas Metro Police traffic cop to ticket you for speeding, and sometimes it can get you out of one. But what got this person out of a Las Vegas speeding ticket was the [...]

New, More Cops May Mean More Las Vegas Speeding Tickets

By | 2016-11-15T22:02:44-07:00 November 15th, 2016|Categories: Las Vegas Legal News, Speeding|Tags: , , |

More cops, more cops, ever more cops being added to give you a speeding ticket in Las Vegas, or so many other things. Doesn’t it seem like we just went through a local tax increase for more police? That one was aimed at putting patrol cars out there (with officers in them, of course) and if memory serves was all about, or at least mostly about, preventing fatal vehicle crashes in Las Vegas. That also meant that the Las Vegas Metro Police force would soon be responding again to non injury accidents in the Las Vegas area. Well, now another More Cops bill has been signed, sealed, and delivered. The piece of legislation, formally known as the Crime Prevention Act of 2016, was another bill that the legislature passed in a special session. It was also yet another bill that they, the legislature, didn’t pass outright, but made as “enabling” legislation. No, not enabling in the sense of unwittingly contributing to a vice like drugs, enabling in that it allowed the Clark County Commission to raise the tax if it wanted to. Some on one side of the political spectrum might call that enabling in the vice sense of the [...]

More Cops and More Speeding Tickets Possible in Las Vegas

By | 2016-10-07T01:11:09-07:00 October 7th, 2016|Categories: Las Vegas Legal News, Online Legal Services, Speeding|Tags: , |

There could soon be more officers to give out more Las Vegas speeding tickets. That’s because additional funding for police officers may be back on the table at a special session of the legislature that would presumably begin next week. The special session is not at all being called because there is a lack of uniformed officers patrolling Las Vegas streets. In fact, the special session is to bring more criminal element to the Las Vegas area: it is to bring raiders to our fair city. Or more appropriately, that should be capitalized as Raiders, and given the potential official name: the Las Vegas Raiders, a franchise of the National Football League. Pardon the terrible play on words, please. However, the bi-product of a special session is potentially some smaller bills that are unrelated in most senses to the huge taxpayer funding portion of the stadium that the other money men say is necessary to their putting up any money for the team and their new digs. In this case, as stated above, part of the potential other purposes of the session could be to directly approve a tax increase for more officers for the Las Vegas Metro Police Force. [...]

Speeding Tickets in Las Vegas Push Nevada To Poor Driving Rank

By | 2016-08-19T22:25:05-07:00 August 19th, 2016|Categories: Las Vegas Legal News, Speeding|Tags: , |

Speeding tickets in Nevada are part of why many rankings have Nevada as one of the worst states for driving. Or rather, this helps us hit the ranking for some of the worst drivers out there, across the country. Does that sound right to you? Depends in part on how you measure it, as with everything. Yes, there are a lot of issues on Nevada roads. Las Vegas and the rest of the valley have some serious issues with accidents, speeding tickets, driving under the influence, and any number of other issues. But in some part, we’re a victim of others. While many states have bad drivers just by virtue of being bad drivers, Las Vegas gets everyone else’s bad drivers. And we get them on vacation, without a care in the world, in a rental car, not knowing where they are going. That’s right, we said it: a part of our bad rating has to be from the tourists. Look, we’re Las Vegas traffic ticket attorneys. We get it as much or probably more than anyone. Las Vegans have their share of speeding tickets to fight online and we help them with it. 24hourticketpower.com knows the numbers because we [...]

Las Vegas DUI and Much, Much More

By | 2016-07-20T00:14:44-07:00 July 20th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: |

Even officers of the law have their problems with Nevada Highway Patrol or the Las Vegas Metro Police when they are off duty. Now, there are certainly plenty of pieces of anecdotal evidence that off duty cops do get favorable treatment from their brothers in blue. This is not terribly surprising on a certain level, as it happens in any industry. Bartenders give free drinks to other bartenders, contractors help each other out, doctors help each other out, it is a common refrain. However, the folks who enforce the laws are not supposed to go easy on anyone more than another. At least in this recent case it appears that they did not. The off duty cop was hit was a DUI charge in Las Vegas, as well as a whole host of other offenses both big and small. From the recent news report on the Las Vegas DUI arrest, here is the list as initially reported: Felony DUI with substantial bodily harm Felony leaving the scene of a crash Two counts of misdemeanor hit-and-run property damage Three counts of misdemeanor failure to use due care Three counts misdemeanor failure to give information or render aid Misdemeanor failure to drive [...]

Rankings Leave Out Nevada Traffic Tickets

By | 2016-06-14T23:48:50-07:00 June 14th, 2016|Categories: Las Vegas Legal News, Online Legal Services|Tags: , |

What’s the best state to drive in? For anyone who has recently gotten a traffic ticket in Nevada, the answer is probably “somewhere else.” True probably no matter where you get a traffic ticket -- nobody, nobody likes getting a traffic ticket. But truly, beyond just personal and incidental temporal reasoning, it is interesting to see rankings of where the best and worst places to drive are, even if just to refine our own ideas and come up with our own ranking systems based on the flaws we see in others’ methodology. A recent ranking of all 50 states was recently released by CarInsurance.com. This online car insurance provider had some very interesting ranking systems that ticketpower.com are not necessarily totally on board with for various reasons, including that the Nevada traffic tickets were not included in the rankings. Here’s what was included: Insurance -- Percent car insurance is of median household income Uninsured drivers -- Estimated percent of uninsured drivers Traffic fatalities -- Annual traffic deaths per 100,000 population Roads -- Percent of roads in poor/mediocre condition Bridges -- Percent of bridges deemed structurally deficient Repair costs -- Estimated extra cost of car repair due to driving on bad roads Gas -- Average price of a [...]

Las Vegas DUI Checkpoint Announced for April 19

By | 2016-04-16T15:13:01-07:00 April 16th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: , , , |

The Traffic Bureau of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department recently announced that they will be conducting a DUI checkpoint in Las Vegas in the next few days. They were a little more coy than they sometimes are about the exact location, saying only that it would be in the Las Vegas Valley. They narrowed it down ever so slightly beyond that, saying it would be where there had been two fatal Las Vegas car crashes, as well a host of other traffic events. Per the news release on the Las Vegas DUI checkpoint: “The checkpoint will be conducted on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 between the hours of 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. The location selected for the checkpoint will be in the Las Vegas Valley on a major roadway that has had 87 events, drunk drivers and traffic accidents, and two fatal accidents in the last six months . . . This checkpoint is being supported by the EUDL, Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws, grant.” The Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws grant is one that is more frequently used to send secret “shoppers” into bars, restaurants, and stores that sell alcohol to attempt to make an underage purchase with a valid [...]

North Las Vegas DUI Net Captures Many

By | 2016-04-10T23:04:57-07:00 April 10th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: , |

Many people were arrested for driving under the influence in North Las Vegas last month, according to information from law enforcement. This, if you hadn’t already guessed, is another chapter in the Joining Forces grant story that we write about fairly often as it is always in the news for handing out Nevada DUIs, speeding tickets, and more. Recently it was distracted driving tickets. However, DUI focuses for this program are fairly common as well. For those of you who are not intimately or even passingly familiar with this blog, a Joining Forces program means a group effort to bust you for any and every traffic violation in a certain area of the Las Vegas valley. Patrols from all different jurisdictions of law enforcement are paid for with grant funding to run extra units in a given area, whether it be North Las Vegas, Henderson, or particular neighborhoods or intersections of Las Vegas. There is usually a specific target in mind or in theory, such as looking for driving under the influence in the Las Vegas Strip, running red lights in Summerlin, pedestrian violations in Downtown Las Vegas, distracted driving in Henderson, and cell phone violations in Spring Valley. If [...]

Las Vegas DUI News for Former County Commissioner

By | 2016-01-18T03:17:31-07:00 January 18th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: , |

The Cowboy Commissioner is in Las Vegas DUI news again, which is really not news to any who follow Las Vegas traffic law issue like we do at 24hourticketpower.com. It’s probably not surprising to many people that the news this time is regarding his driving under the influence in Las Vegas charge stemming from a car crash he was involved in in December of last year. That former Clark County Commissioner, one Tom Collins by reputation and Clarence Weldon Collins Jr. by birth certificate, not at all unknown in the courts and law enforcement system of Southern Nevada towns as well as the highway patrol, and not, shall we say, just for being a Clark County Commissioner. Former Commissioner Collins has been in trouble with the law publically at least since a reckless driving charge back in the early nineties. He’s had livestock allegedly escape and injure people, there’s a famous incident with firearms as well. Collins pleaded “no contest” to these recent charges. That’s a phrase, a piece of legal jargon, that isn’t much used on popular depictions of the law. We understand why, of course – there’s no drama in a confusing term that means usually means we [...]

By | 2016-01-06T10:20:05-07:00 January 6th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News|Tags: , , |

Las Vegas DUI accidents can have repercussions beyond just the immediate accident, and the injuries and deaths that are caused. After the accident, surviving family members of those killed and caregivers of those who are injured in Clark County driving while intoxicated accidents. The mother of a man that was killed in a DUI accident in Las Vegas recently attacked the driver of the car that killed her son, when both were at the courthouse of Clark County for a court hearing. The woman who was arrested and convicted of battering the driver in the accident, 64-year-old Lindona Thompson, plead no-contest to the charges. Ms. Thompson received a fine of $100 and must go to classes to help her control her impulses. Ms. Thompson must also not get in trouble with police for the next 90 days and if she does, the charges against her will be reversed.

Las Vegas Drunk Driving Deaths Decline In 2015

By | 2016-01-05T11:05:51-07:00 January 5th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News|Tags: , , |

Drunk driving deaths in the Silver State continue to fall. The decline in 2015 from 2014 was nearly 25%. 61 people died from Las Vegas drunk driving accidents and accidents across Nevada in 2015. in 2014, 81 people died from drunk driving accidents. From 2013 to 2014 drunk driving accidents in Nevada fell 40%. Non-profits that fights drunk driving in the Silver State are predicting that the rise of ridesharing services like Lyft and Uber will help to bring down drunk driving accidents even more moving forward. When someone who is drinking calls a taxi, there is little feedback as to when the taxi will arrive. Ridesharing services that are contacted via a mobile application have a second by second update to the arrival time of the vehicle you have requested. By constantly updating the potential drunk driver, they may be dissuaded from getting behind the wheel and committing a Clark County DUI. Even though Southern Nevada DWI and other drunk driving deaths are falling across the state, MADD is also pushing for the Nevada legislature to increase penalties for driving drunk. At this time, a first time drunk driving conviction in the Silver State brings with it a misdemeanor [...]

Appeal Set For Las Vegas Assemblyman Convicted of Driving While Intoxicated

By | 2015-12-27T15:30:28-07:00 December 27th, 2015|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News|Tags: , , |

The appeal for a Las Vegas Assemblyman’s DUI guilty verdict has been set for late January, 2016. The Democrat, Richard Carrillo was booked for a DUI on Friday, February 27th, during the last legislative session in the Silver State’s capitol, Carson City. Mr. Carrillo was not booked for Las Vegas DUI, instead, Carson City DUI. Mr. Carrillo’s conviction is being handled in the Clark County court because his attorney contends that no hard evidence exists that the Democratic Assemblyman was actually committing a DUI offense at the time of his arrest. The Clark County legislator was only sitting in the front seat of his vehicle at the time of his arrest, he was not operating the vehicle, although the key was in the on position in the ignition. The engine was running, Assemblyman Carrillo attests, in order for him to keep himself warm. Since the Assemblyman was not actually driving the car at the time, his legal team attests that he should not have been convicted. The Southern Nevada legislator’s appeal is being based on a 1989 case before the Supreme Court of Nevada. In the case, a person found sleeping in a vehicle cannot be assumed to actually be [...]

A mid-December DUI mitigation event was recently held by Las Vegas police and other local police departments. At the Wednesday, December 16th Las Vegas DUI checkpoint 11 were arrested for driving while intoxicated. Over 4,500 drivers passed through the checkpoint that was held at the intersection of Charleston Blvd and Arlington Ave. 33 people who passed through the DUI checkpoint were tested for Clark County driving while intoxicated. The checkpoint was set up on the eastern side of Las Vegas. Funding for the checkpoint was provided by a grant for Enforcing Laws applying to underage drinking. One of the objectives for the checkpoint was to increase awareness of local police departments’ efforts to curb drunk driving in Southern Nevada. The checkpoint was held from 7:00 P.M. to 3:00 A.M. The area selected for the DUI checkpoint was chosen because the area has a high number of suspected drivers who were operating their vehicles intoxicated and a large number of automobile accidents. Drunk and drugged driving by adults, teenagers and even older Nevadans who hadn’t gotten into accidents were the targets of the drunk driving checkpoint. The Las Vegas police department and other area police agencies are focused on reducing Southern [...]

In 2015, so far, there have been 116 deaths due to Las Vegas automobile accidents. Nearly 25% of those accidents are because one of the drivers involved was driving while intoxicated in Clark County. To combat these deaths and the even more injuries, University Hospital invited Las Vegas high school teenagers to an anti-drunk driving event. The students got a first hand look at the effects of Las Vegas DUI. First responders were at the event to show the teenagers the tragic consequences of driving while intoxicated. Also speaking at the event were the surviving family members of those killed by drunk drivers.

When Marko Kustudia went on his daily morning walk, he didn’t expect to be involved in a Las Vegas DUI accident that left another man dead and him hospitalized with serious injuries. Mr. Kustudia was walking on October 7th, when he saw the sunrise illuminate the Las Vegas valley and then was shockingly bathed in headlights, as an automobile began to bear down on him.
