Grant Funded Clark County Traffic Ticket Focus Underway

By | 2016-07-25T00:56:50-07:00 July 25th, 2016|Categories: General Ticket Info|Tags: , |

The Joining Forces grant is at it again. There’s a major effort underway now until the end of the month to ticket Clark County drivers for just about anything they can find. Here’s what the Joining Forces grant is about, from the program’s own site: “Joining Forces is a multi-jurisdictional law enforcement program that promotes traffic safety by targeting impaired or distracted driving, pedestrian safety, speeding and seat belt use. Motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death in the United States and most crashes are preventable.  Through scheduled Joining Forces events, Nevada law enforcement agencies aim to increase awareness for traffic safety and modify risky behavior, thereby preventing accidents and saving lives.” The bulk of our law firm practice is devoted to speeding ticket representation. Radar and following are the primary means of police engagement to nail a speeder. The majority of speeding tickets issued are for the minor offense of: BASIC SPEED 1-10 mph over the speed limit. What does this mean? It means the officer likely caught you speeding over that amount, but graciously gave you a discount—or so they said. Basic speeding means you were traveling over the 65 mph doing 75 or [...]

19 Arrested For Las Vegas DUI at Checkpoint

By | 2015-11-19T11:25:40-07:00 November 19th, 2015|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: , , |

A Las Vegas DUI checkpoint nabbed nearly 20 people for driving while intoxicated in Las Vegas from Tuesday, November 18th to today, Thursday, November 19th. The checkpoint lasted until 3:00 a.m. this morning. It starred at 7:00 p.m. yesterday. 19 individuals received citations for Clark County DUIs. The police checked almost 6,000 cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles during the 8 hour drunk driving mitigation effort. Of those 6,000 people, nearly 75 were evaluated for drunk driving. Metro police, in conjunction with other local police agencies, conducted the DUI checkpoint at the intersection of Tropicana Ave. and Paradise Rd. Police agencies in Clark County are working together to reduce the number of DUI accidents and deaths over the holidays in 2015. So far this year, 97 people have died in Las Vegas automobile accidents, and typically the deadliest time of the year on American roads is the fourth quarter, with millions of motorists taking to the roads after holiday parties and cold weather can make roads and bridges icy in colder climates. Since El Nino has been forecast this year, it’s important to slow down when roads are wet as well as be careful when out with friends celebrating. Alcohol [...]

Could Driver Less Cars Eliminate Drunk Driving In Las Vegas

By | 2015-10-14T08:34:50-07:00 October 14th, 2015|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: , , |

While many have focused on how driver less cars will reduce automobile accidents resulting in property damages, injuries and deaths, one of the ways the driver less cars will bring those numbers down is how driver less car technology will drastically reduce Las Vegas drunk driving and drunk driving across the nation and world. Should driver less cars work as they are promised, the technology could be ranked as one of the most life saving innovations of all time. By the end of the 2000s, driver less cars could end up saving over 50 million lives across the planet. While some may think the 50,000 million lives saved estimate is hard to believe, the numbers developed are actually solidly devised. The numbers are first devised with traffic data across the United States and then those numbers are extrapolated to determine the potential lives saved globally. Should one want to determine how many Clark County DUI deaths will be eliminated, one should just use the percentage of decline in deaths across the United States and then apply that number to deaths due to Southern Nevada OUI. Driver less car technology is not the first life saving technology to be added to [...]

Are Las Vegas DUI Checkpoints Effective?

By | 2015-08-26T10:26:58-07:00 August 26th, 2015|Categories: Ask The Traffic Attorney, DUI, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News|Tags: , , |

Are Las Vegas DUI checkpoints an effective tool for combating driving while intoxicated in Las Vegas? With the traditional end-of-summer three-day-weekend, Labor Day, around the corner, Las Vegas police are gearing up to combat drivers hitting the road while drunk after the weekend’s barbeques and parties. Those efforts will all be funded, in part, by a joint federal and state grant program, Joining Forces. DUI checkpoints will be set up across the Southern Valleys, but how effective are these checkpoints in fighting Clark County DUI? The efficacy of DUI checkpoints can easily be countered. In Indiana’s Hamilton County their DUI checkpoints in 2013 had an arrest rate for drink driving of less that 4%. In 2014, A CO DUI checkpoint inspected 1500 automobiles, motorcycles and trucks. Of those 1500 drivers checked, only 1% were arrested for driving while intoxicated. In the year from Oct. 2010 to Sept. 2011, West Virginia road blocks pulled over approximately 130,000 drivers. From those 130,000 inspections, 3.2% of the drivers were arrested for driving while intoxicated. Why do DUI checkpoints have such low rates of arresting drunk drivers? For one, In Nevada, police must post the area the DUI checkpoint will be held. When these [...]

The Assemblyman from District 18, Richard Carrillo is appealing his conviction for driving while intoxicated and possessing a gun while drunk. While his conviction is not for Las Vegas DUI but instead Carson City DUI, his driving privileges in Las Vegas will still be affected. The lawyer for Mr. Carrillo filed the appeal notice with the district court but did not include the reasons for the appeal. The filing was preliminary and the grounds can be submitted at a later date. While it is always better to find a sober driver, or take a taxicab, or public transportation, if you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated in Clark County, always hire an attorney to represent you. There are a number of reasons why a citation for drunk driving can be beaten. Assemblyman Carrillo’s February 27th arrest for DUI in Carson City happened when he was found by witnesses sitting in his car with the ignition on.

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.

New Technologies May Put A Stop To Las Vegas Drunk Driving

Soon, your car may stop you from drunk driving in Las Vegas. New technology is being developed that will prevent automobiles from working if the driver behind the steering wheel is inebriated. This technology could have the same life saving efficacy as seat belts or airbags. The technology, intended to prevent Clark County DUI will use a number of factors to determine if the potential operator of the motor vehicle is intoxicated. One of the factors will be to test samples from the driver’s breath. The process is being designed as a seamless system which will work automatically, without bothering or alerting the person behind the wheel. Another system will check the driver’s alcohol levels when he or she touches a certain part of the car. This could be integrated into the car’s start button or the steering wheel. Again, this test will be completed imperceptibly. These new technological solutions would prevent the embarrassment of current ignition lock systems that have large breath collection systems. Anti-drunk driving advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving has approved of the technology and the president of the organization has been vocal in support. The system is being touted as having the potential to prevent [...]
