Local police departments have been increasing citations for speeding in Southern Nevada. For example, almost 275 drivers in Henderson were stopped by Henderson police in an increased enforcement effort beginning April 30th and ending May 10th. The increased traffic enforcement was funded by a Joining Forces grant and was the ninth on in Southern Nevada in 2015.

Another five people received citations for running through a red light. 14 Nevadans were ticketed for using a cell phone while driving, although the breakdown of whether these were first, second or third offenses was not provided. 8 people had license plates that had expired and were ticketed for driving with out of date registrations.

The State of Nevada’s Joining Forces grant funded the Henderson speeding ticket effort. The increased enforcement cost nearly $110,000. The grant money paid for additional officer overtime and consumables used in the traffic enforcement effort. The joining forces grant was [...]

An audit of police ticket revenue by a local Las Vegas area municipality shows that officers for the city, Henderson, repeatedly fixed Southern Nevada speeding tickets for friends and family. When they fixed the tickets, the police officers wrote simply “In the case of justice” on the tickets so they were allowed to be unpaid. The Henderson speeding ticket fixing scheme lasted until the end of September last year and started in October 2012. A total of 171 tickets for exceeding the speed limit in Clark County and other offenses were fixed by Henderson police officers during the two years. Of the 171 tickets,nearly 100 had been previously submitted to Clark County traffic court before they were fixed by Henderson police.

Southern Nevada police departments release arrest info on St. Patrick’s Day Las Vegas DUI checkpoint. In an effort to reduce drunk driving accidents and deaths due to driving whle intoxicated in Southern Nevada accidents, area police departments teamed up on St. Patrick’s Day to set up roadblocks and increase patrols. The Las Vegas police departments that cooperated included Las Vegas police department, North Las Vegas police department, Clark County school district police, Nevada Highway police and more.

While many find working through Clark County traffic court frustrating, judges, court reporters, stenographers, bailiffs and others in the court system are generally hoping for everyone to succeed. While the good intentions of court employees should not dissuade you from hiring an attorney for a Las Vegas DUI, however, it is always important to remember that district attorneys, judges, bailiffs, court reporters and more are people too. Recently, a Las Vegas judge went above and beyond, attempting to inspire a repeat offender to his court to clean up her ways. Not everyone is as lucky as 25-year old Ashley M. Agerbeek, however, so, if you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated in Clark County, please log onto 24hourticketpower.com today.

Las Vegas Police have used DUI checkpoints at particularly dangerous intersections and stretches of highway to reduce the number of fatal and injury collisions with both pedestrians and automobiles. While many have been nabbed by police for Las Vegas DUI at these types of checkpoints, a new legal theory is being purported by some to reduce the ability of police to search your automobile at a roadblock. The theory goes that if you quote the specific Nevada legal statute regarding your and the police’s rights pertaining to a DUI checkpoint stop, you can refrain from opening your window, consenting to a search, invoke your 5th amendment rights and more. In addition to including the placard, an individual should hold their driver’s license on the window. Should you be showing visible signs of intoxication – inability to keep to the right, swerving, speeding or driving excessively under the speed limit – the newly developed legal theory will not dissuade police from searching you. In this type of a situation, the police have probable cause for a search and will likely check you and your vehicle for signs of drinking. If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated in Clark County, [...]
Two Las Vegas pedestrian accidents occur due to individuals driving while intoxicated. A pedestrian was killed in an accident when he was hit by a man, under the influence of alcohol, driving a pickup near Alto Ave on Lamb Blvd. The man, 38-year old Nicholas Brooks, was booked by Las Vegas Metro Police for DUI in Las Vegas. Mr. Brooks, who is from Las Vegas, did not flee from the scene of the accident and instead was booked by police immediately. The gentleman killed in the accident, a Las Vegas resident who was 30 years old, was determined dead at the accident scene. In another Las Vegas DUI accident, a Nevada judge increased the bail for a 29-year old woman accused of killing a man and fleeing the scene of the accident. The woman, Galina Kilova, who is an illegal immigrant to the United States, has been incarcerated with a bail for $100,000. She was originally released on a bail of $20,000 – but was subsequently arrested by US Homeland Security since she has been in the United States illegally since 2006. The DUI accident happened when Ms. Kilova hit and struck Michael Grubbs while he was pushing his granddaughter, [...]

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.

Southern Nevada is a desert. Our dry weather and desert heat means mild winters, pleasant springs and very hot summers. Occasionally, shifting weather patterns create weeks of strangely cold or rainy weather across Clark County. Unfortunately, due to our normally mild weather, many Las Vegans lack the knowledge and skill to be able to safely drive in the rain. In addition, severe weather changes many traffic rules – Nevada Revised Statute 484B.603 states that during inclement weather, it is the duty of the driver to decrease their driving speed.

Las Vegas drivers unfamiliar with the safety issues of driving in the rain should take note of these tips. First and foremost, when it rains, drivers should slow down. Water on pavement significantly reduces your tires’ traction.

When traveling on highways, avoid outer lanes where puddles that can cause hydroplaning can form. Increase the distance between your vehicle and any in front [...]
