Red Light Camera Tickets: Not Cut and Dried

By | 2011-11-06T20:20:48-07:00 November 6th, 2011|Categories: Ask The Traffic Attorney, General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Online Legal Services, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

News about Nevada is often lost in the shuffle while larger, more populous neighboring states steal the headlines. One unexpected benefit of this phenomenon is that we can look to these other communities to predict what changes the future might bring in the realm of Nevada ticket citations. In Nevada's northwest neighbor of Washington, the Monroe City Council recently warned red light camera ticket provider, Redflex, that the Pacific-Northwest city was considering canceling its contract. Citing repeated typographical errors, omission of entire words and other inconsistencies, the Monroe police department stated it had been forced to cancel many citations and even issue refunds. Although similar snafus in the Silver State might offer motorists a convenient way to beat a Las Vegas traffic citation, authorities are far from amused. This is not the first time Redflex has been warned or had their contract terminated. Just this month, cities across the country have issued warnings or terminated their contracts with the company. Remote monitoring programs are also in place around the nation that utilize radar technology to remotely issue Las Vegas speeding tickets to offending drivers. If you have received a red light camera citation in Las Vegas, and would like to [...]

Hoping to avoid Las Vegas cell phone traffic tickets, will drivers make roads more dangerous?

By | 2011-10-27T21:22:47-07:00 October 27th, 2011|Categories: Cellphones and Visual distractions, Distraction on the Road: Texting, General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

With the passage and signing into law of SB 140 in the spring session of the Nevada Legislature, lawmakers made the Silver State the 34th state in the country to restrict texting while driving and the ninth state in the nation to ban handheld cell phone use. These new restrictions are intended to save lives and make the roads safer, but could unexpected consequences result in unforeseen hazards due to this Nevada traffic law? Under the new law, drivers stand to receive a Las Vegas traffic citation if they are seen using a cellular phone to make a call or read a text message while they are operating a motor vehicle. Prior to the law's passage, state employees were prohibited from using a cell phone while driving in Nevada using state vehicles. Police officers began issuing warning tickets on the first day of this month, and on January 1, 2012 drivers will have to go to Las Vegas traffic court to avoid a $50, $100, or $250 fine. But according to the Law of Unintended Consequences, we can predict that complications may arise. With the sudden enforcement of this new law, drivers accustomed to using their cell phones whenever they [...]

Revelations of police corruption include traffic citation abuse

By | 2011-10-23T22:40:31-07:00 October 23rd, 2011|Categories: Ask The Traffic Attorney, Cellphones and Visual distractions, General Ticket Info, Local News, Online Legal Services, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

A recent episode of the popular National Public Radio program "This American Life" includes a look at a police corruption scandal. According to insider reports, high-ranking police officials pressured officers to issue baseless citations and make other frivolous arrests even as they diminished reporting of serious offenses in order to push down statistics of crime in their jurisdictions. In some of the most serious cases, sexual assaults were reported as mere trespassing while innocent individuals were essentially framed by police for drug possession, public consumption of alcohol, and traffic citations. Although police in Nevada have generally been held to higher standards of accountability, pressure on rank-and-file police may result in undue Las Vegas speeding tickets. To be sure, many Nevada motorists drive irresponsibly or in defiance of the law and deserve the Nevada traffic tickets they are given. Especially with some of the new Nevada traffic laws on the books including one requiring a three-foot berth when passing cyclists and the state's first-ever law limiting the use of a cell phone while driving in Nevada, the potential for citations is high. Nonetheless, it is important for police to issue tickets responsibly in order to maintain the trust and faith of [...]

Desperate for revenue, will Nevada offer big discounts on Las Vegas traffic tickets?

By | 2011-10-17T21:31:51-07:00 October 17th, 2011|Categories: Cellphones and Visual distractions, Distraction on the Road: Texting, DUI, General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Online Legal Services, Technology and the LAW, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Here in Nevada, we often look west at our larger, more populous neighbor and ask if we want to follow its lead. When it comes to increased penalties for many traffic offenses including the use of a cell phone while driving, we have eventually followed suit and even established stronger penalties on the prohibited conduct. Although California has much harsher first-time DUI penalties than Nevada -- a six-month license suspension versus a 90-day Nevada suspended license in the event of a Las Vegas DUI arrest -- it continues to allow potentially dangerous conduct such as motorcycle lane-splitting that many other states have sworn off. The Golden State is taking a new approach that Nevada legislators may choose to follow. With an estimated balance of nearly $1 billion in outstanding, unpaid traffic ticket fines that are more than two years old, the state is offering an unusual kind of traffic ticket amnesty: pay your fines before June 2012 and save 50 percent on the overdue amount. Empowered by a statutory change in the last legislative session, administration officials have conservatively estimated that two percent of tickets issued before 2009 and which are still outstanding will be coughed up during the period, [...]

Are Nevada traffic tickets credible in light of recent scandals?

By | 2011-09-30T18:59:16-07:00 September 30th, 2011|Categories: General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Online Legal Services, Traffic Arrest Warrants, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

Anytime a Nevada driver pulls back onto the road with a freshly issued Las Vegas traffic ticket, it is easy for him or her to dismiss the violation as unfair or unjust. Usually, though, as the rush of the incident fades and more level heads prevail, the motorist realizes that he or she was rightly caught doing the wrong thing, whether it was a rolling stop or a duly earned Las Vegas speeding ticket. But in light of some recent scandals from across the country, a skeptical ticket recipient could make a credible argument against the validity of some Nevada traffic citations. Since the start of the recession some four years ago allegations have been brewing that state and local law enforcement agencies have been utilizing traffic ticket quotas to drive police officers to issue more citations than they otherwise would. Despite widespread denials of any such programs, journalists across the country have written exposés suggesting that local police agencies are in fact imposing quotas on their officers. Just days ago a police jurisdiction in the southeast admitted that it was, in fact, relying on traffic ticket quotas. When drivers know that the police officers who pull them over are [...]

Empezó de nuevo el año escolar, también el tiempo de multas de tráfico

Hoy es el final día de agosto -- ya expiró la estación del verano. Los tiempos libres, las oportunidades para viajar sin afectar a los estudios de sus hijos ya han expirado. Con la empieza del nuevo año escolar, los hogares en Las Vegas ahora están de nuevo siguiendo el mismo horario. Lo bueno de esto -- tal vez -- es que los ritmos del entero familia ahora están todos de acuerdo. Lo malo de este cambio es que ahora las zonas alrededor de las escuelas son de repente lleno de policia esforzando a las leyes de tráfico de Las Vegas. Las leyes no han cambiado -- todavía le van a poner un ticket por no detenerse en un semáforo rojo o por cualquier otra cosa. Durante el año fiscal o no, le van a poner un ticket de Las Vegas por manejar tomado si usted decide arriesgar así. Lo que sí ha cambiado es la aplicación de estas leyes adentro las zonas escolares. Aquí en Nevada, las leyes tratan todavía más duro violaciones de las leyes de tráfico que ocurren en zonas donde hay construcción en las calles o entre zonas escolares. Las zonas escolares llevan letreros que dicen [...]

Las Vegas traffic tickets have drivers singing the Back-to-School blues

By | 2011-08-30T21:45:12-07:00 August 30th, 2011|Categories: General Ticket Info, Henderson Legal News, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Online Legal Services, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

For those of us lucky enough to count ourselves among the ranks of the fully employed, each week comes and goes much like the last: the week winds down, we spend the weekend catching up on sleep or projects or relaxation, and then Monday comes. Week after week, month after month, our routines do not change much and we even learn which intersections demand cautious driving to prevent the issuance of Las Vegas red light tickets. But this week began with surprises for some Nevada drivers lulled into a daze by the hot summer days of the last few months. Those of us trying to beat the heat and get from home to work as quickly as possible may have begun leaving later and later with the passing weeks and making up for our tardiness with a little extra accelerator action on the streets. This may have served us well through most of the summer, but this Monday marked the first day of school for most Nevada public school students. And with that all those cobwebby School Zone signs have sprung to life, their yellow lights flashing lethargically in the morning sun. They are easy to overlook...until you are pulled [...]

Malicious email scam continues to spread: will it prey upon Nevada traffic ticket recipients?

By | 2011-08-24T22:26:38-07:00 August 24th, 2011|Categories: General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Online Legal Services, Technology and the LAW, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

A few weeks ago we reported on an outbreak of mean-spirited emails that preyed upon drivers who mistakenly believed that they had to fix a traffic ticket. This story first broke in the Garden State, where dozens of drivers opened their inboxes and clicked on messages that purported to contain information about red light tickets and other traffic citations. And so began the cruel joke: the email looked semi-official and had an attachment that was ostensibly a photo image of the violation in real time. Click to download the picture...and a harsh computer virus begins destroying your computer. Now reports are surfacing that this same plot is unfolding across the water in the Empire State and that dozens of drivers have fallen prey to the same cruelty. As this scheme spreads westward, might it reach Nevada as well? The proliferation of data mining and the en masse sale of our personal information has created an environment ripe for these kinds of pranks, but the insidious nature of the Internet could create an even more harmful trends. Consider the devastation that could unfold if a driver opened a fraudulent email and saw a prompt to surrender credit card information to pay [...]

Las Vegas drivers about six weeks from new Nevada traffic citations for texting and driving

By | 2011-08-21T21:39:26-07:00 August 21st, 2011|Categories: Cellphones and Visual distractions, Distraction on the Road: Texting, DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Online Legal Services, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

About six weeks before the effective date of a new Nevada texting while driving law, Las Vegas drivers can still be seen with their phones pressed to their ears as they commute through Clark County traffic. For now, police are biding their time and continuing to focus on their bread and butter, including issuing Las Vegas speeding tickets. But this patient observation will soon morph into something more predatory once the new law takes effect. As a tense and vital legislative session came to a close in Carson City earlier this summer, lawmakers gave final approval to SB 140, which Governor Sandoval later signed into law. Although the bill passed the state Senate by only a narrow 11-10 margin, the policy of restricting cell phone use while driving is part of a growing consensus nationwide. According to StateHighwaySafety.org, 42 states have some kind of restriction on the use of cell phones for either voice or text communications while driving. These laws are usually in addition to existing regulations like Las Vegas distracted driving laws. Some of the first states to adopt cell phone while driving laws utilized weak penalties that now are seen as too mild to serve as effective [...]

Economy weak and revenues low, cities look to past traffic tickets for cash

By | 2011-08-14T22:05:05-07:00 August 14th, 2011|Categories: General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Online Legal Services, Road Rules, Traffic Arrest Warrants, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

Imagine you're down on your luck and you need some cash, fast. Your job has dried up to a few hours a week and the hope of getting another job is dim. Bills are mounting and if you can't pay with your earnings you'll have to sell things you really can't bear to part with. Now imagine that some of your friends owe you money: $10 here, $30 there, $70 for those football tickets last season. Wouldn't you at least consider calling in this old debts, even if they are a little stale? Sadly, many American families face circumstances like these and increasingly so too do our cities and counties. For those public entities, the challenges of the last few years make it more attractive to institute new programs to collect months- and years-old Nevada traffic tickets. Many municipalities and county-level entities have chosen to allocate a little extra effort into a kind of records roundup that yields all the unpaid parking and Las Vegas traffic citati0ns still outstanding in their jurisdiction. In some cases, those accused of breaking Nevada traffic laws have been avoiding the consequences for months or even years. In the worst cases, governments have attempted to [...]

Would Nevada drivers be safer with fewer Las Vegas traffic tickets?

No one disputes that Nevada's westerly neighbor -- the state of California -- takes policy innovation to new levels. Depending on your ideological bend and what periods you consider, you can easily make the case either that California policy-making in the last century has been a shining example of democratic governance and innovation or a train-wreck of...democratic governance and innovation. The state has been a leader in laws to regulate industries and protect employee rights but it has also overturned same-sex marriage and shielded property owners from tax increases. Now another instance of California dreaming is making waves: one small city is drastically reducing its issuance of traffic citations. Thorough readers of our Las Vegas traffic ticket blog will notice that California's largest city is also in the news as Las Vegas' SoCal neighbor has ended its red-light camera program. LA drivers pushed back forcefully on the photo-enforcement regime and city officials opted not to continue the program after evidence surfaced that these red-light tickets were only being selectively enforced. Now a city roughly a tenth of the population of Greater LA is giving drivers another reprieve but for very different reasons. The city of Roseville -- just over the [...]

Major source of Las Vegas tourism votes down red-light cameras

By | 2011-08-06T12:47:04-07:00 August 6th, 2011|Categories: General Ticket Info, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Online Legal Services, Technology and the LAW, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

After footing the $1.5 million bill for installing a massive red-light camera system, the city of Los Angeles has voted to end its contract for photo-enforcement tickets effective tomorrow. The LA city council voted not to extend the contract that lapses on July 31, bringing an end to a program that cost about $2.5 million annually to operate and which reportedly has not been generating nearly as much revenue as was expected. The program -- which has run for as long as 15 years in some boroughs of the sprawling SoCal metropolis -- came under fire recently as city officials revealed an official stance toward the photo-enforcement traffic citations that held these tickets were voluntary. Enforcement actions were taken sparingly and often passively even though the city had invested millions in the project and depends on volume to regain its money (the private company that operates the camera network takes about one-third of the gross ticket revenues). Unwilling to continue the program in its current configuration, the city council voted 13-0 against continuing the contract. For a Las Vegas traffic ticket lawyer, this action has meaning even though it happened in a next-door state. As any good Nevada traffic citation [...]

Be Aware of Traffic Laws in Construction Zones

Summer construction is alive and well in Nevada. With many long-term road projects in the works, it is important to be aware of traffic laws involving road construction zones. If you thought it was painful to get a Las Vegas speeding ticket under normal conditions, just wait until you feel the extra burn of construction-zone enhancements! Speeding through a Nevada construction zone is a common traffic violation. The penalties for speeding through a road construction zone include an expensive fine, six months in jail or 120 hours of community service.  A notice of construction must be posted before and after the work zone in Nevada.  The notices should indicate the speed limit that is allowed in the work zone for motorist. In addition to a speeding citation, you can also be ticketed for failure to obey a traffic device. It is especially important to be aware of workers in a construction zone. A speeding violation can easily escalate to charges that are more serious if a worker is injured. Tracking the progress of various road projects and being more aware in road construction zones can help you avoid serious traffic laws. If you receive a traffic ticket in a Nevada [...]

Red tape can muddle life after fixing a Las Vegas traffic ticket

In a popular article posted on the Web site BeniciaPatch.com, the author details the hoops and headaches of dealing with life after the mundane ravages of an incident like a Las Vegas speeding ticket. She describes the frustration of trying to mitigate the auto-insurance impacts of a traffic citation. After she received her local equivalent of a Nevada speeding ticket, she dutifully attended a traffic-school class to avoid getting points on her driver's license. But when she checked her auto-insurance statement and saw that her premiums had shot up. When she looked into it, she found that her traffic-school class hadn't registered with the insurer. The article goes on to describe a hectic series of events that includes contact with her insurance company, her credit-card company, the municipal traffic court, and the traffic school. Her advice at the end of the piece is to recommend that anyone facing a Nevada traffic citation deal with it and keep ready, accurate copies of the traffic school certificate and follow up proactively with his or her insurer. Our advice is simpler still -- get an experienced traffic ticket lawyer to fix the ticket for you and avoid the need for traffic school in [...]

Another state adds traffic ticket camera regime to crack down

In past months our Las Vegas traffic ticket Web site has given a fair amount of attention to regimes across the country that utilize cameras to remotely police city streets. This coverage has touched on almost all of the major issues with this new technology, including the public outcry and push-back that has become common in places where installed cameras replace police officers in flagging drivers for running red lights. This attitude has largely carried the day in the western region of the United States, where states like Nevada have put off mass-scale photo enforcement and areas like Arizona have actually repealed the programs after they were too successful at doling out traffic citations. We have also seen other setbacks for photo-enforcement regimes. Some traffic court judges have placed new restrictions on law enforcement's ability to use photo evidence to issue valid Las Vegas traffic tickets. The main doctrine that has emerged in this realm is the courts' insistence that trained police officers -- i.e. NOT contract employees with no law enforcement training -- actually monitor the cameras or review footage of alleged violations before issuing a traffic citation. These rules are not universal, however, and in many areas you [...]

Nevada train accident tragedy highlights need for safe driving beyond avoiding Las Vegas traffic citations

How about a quick perspective check? With the daily grind of deadlines and traffic and hot summer days around here, it can be all too easy to slip into a selfish mode of thinking that frames Las Vegas traffic citations as nothing more than nuisances or even injustices. This is not to say that traffic tickets aren't a pain in the keister -- the hassle of dealing with a citation is precisely why we created a special site to help people fix a Nevada ticket online. But the tragedy that unfolded this week in northern Nevada is a somber reminder of why our traffic laws exist. According to reports and early investigations, it appears that a semi-truck driver with a history of Nevada speeding tickets drove through a railroad crossing bar and slammed into two cars of an Amtrak train, creating a fiery crash that killed five others and injured more than a dozen. Investigations continue to determine if the driver was also engaged in Nevada distracted driving just a week before a new cell-phone ban takes legal effect. Even though tickets are a pain, in the grand scheme of things they are intended as reminders to us to drive [...]

If Nevada joins rising trend, motorists may pay heavy admin fees to fix overdue tickets

In several states in the country, the costs for motorists of failing to fix a traffic citation have increased significantly even as local governments have shipped much of the processing of traffic citations out to other regions in efforts to save money. Quite the opposite of providing an easy way to fix a ticket online, these new methods for state and municipal entities to force payment from motorists would make paying a Nevada traffic ticket more costly and difficult if the Silver State were to join the trend. The happy-go-lucky state of Hawai'i is the latest state to jump on this bandwagon, contracting with a private company headquartered in Texas to ensure that payment is received for outstanding traffic citations. At present, a driver with one of these speeding tickets who allows the citation to sit unattended to can expect it to devolve into a frustrating battery of multiple phone calls each day until the person coughs up the fines. These penalties are in addition to procedures already in place in states like Hawai'i where a motorist's driver license cannot be renewed while there is an outstanding traffic citation. Phone calls akin to those experienced by delinquent debtors each night [...]

Stolen identity delays man’s traffic ticket woes, worsens them

Never estimate the creativity of motorists hoping to beat a Nevada traffic ticket. That wisdom has been proven time and again on the pages of our online Las Vegas traffic ticket site, and we can add another shocking exhibit to that archive. A man has been arraigned on identity theft charges for allegedly impersonating his half-brother to avoid at least three traffic citations.

The alleged impersonator is presently being held in jail on $15,000 bail. Here's some free advice: if you've been given a Las Vegas traffic citation, don't steal someone else's identity in a foolish bid to get out of paying the ticket.
