Today, we’ll be taking a look at the laws around Nevada cell phone tickets. This is a relatively new area of law, as far as laws go, having been on the books only since 2011. There are some gems buried in there, but one of the big ones is what is not in there. There is no particular carve out for using your cell phone while stopped at a traffic light. Remember that, as you make your way around the valley, and contact ticketpower.com if you get a Nevada cell phone ticket. This is typically a Nevada distracted driving ticket which you can fight online with ticketpower.com. Our easy to use online system has everything you need. NRS 484B.165 Using handheld wireless communications device to type or enter text, send or read data, engage in nonvoice communication or engage in voice communications without use of hands-free device unlawful; exceptions; penalty; additional penalty for violation in work zone or pedestrian safety zone. 1.

Could you get a traffic ticket in Las Vegas for eating a hamburger? It all depends on what you are driving like and who sees you. We bring this up as we read the Las Vegas news about this distracted driving ticket given to a man in Cobb County, Georgia. It does happen that police will issue distracted driving tickets for eating, it is something that we here at 24hourticketpower.com have seen from our clients, that we have helped them with. It really all depends on the officer and the driver in that situation. Most people eat when they’re driving. Maybe not all the time, but often. Finishing breakfast on your way to work, finishing lunch on your way back from your break. Eating a snack on your way in between meetings or to pick up the kids. It happens. One of the keys to properly fighting one of these tickets is whether the officer catches you doing something else. It’s not illegal, per se, to eat while driving. It becomes distracted driving when it causes you to lose your lane, speed, miss and ignore a traffic sign, or run a red light, for just a few examples. That’s where [...]
A recent operation by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department netted quite a number of traffic citations. The tickets included Las Vegas speeding tickets, failure to stop for pedestrians in marked crosswalks, and a number of other citations like seatbelt violations, insurance and license issues, and the like. This is the second annual operation of this kind by the Las Vegas Metropolitan police department, and it is anything but ordinary. Specifically, and officer crosses the street – in a marked crosswalk and in broad daylight – in a sparkly turkey suit. That’s right: a turkey suit. As a side note, you have to feel a little sorry for the officer who drew the straw to have to take on this duty. Officer Michael Lemley is who had that honor this year. For four hours he walked back and forth across a particularly dangerous crosswalk – a dangerous enough duty in and of itself – dressed in a shiny turkey outfit. He even had a code name of sorts: Butter Ball 1. On his first trip across the street at eight in the morning someone had to brake so hard they smoked their tires as rubber burned during their stop to [...]
Traffic law in Nevada is always evolving as technology, vehicles, roadways, and research evolve as well. Just very recently states have been adopting hands free cell phone laws, and just a little over two years it became law that you could get a traffic ticket in Nevada for a cell phone violation. At the same time, other laws and rules evolved. Nevada became a pioneer for licensing driverless vehicles to be tested and used here in certain circumstances. Those cars so far are by and large created and tested with the greatest potential commercial viability by Google, which is the subject of yet another controversy for its technology and how it affects traffic laws in Nevada and across the country. This time, the subject of the controversy is the new Google Glass, a pair of glasses with a small screen that, while transparent, is still a video screen that you’d theoretically be watching and distracted by as you’re driving. New reports are out that police in some states are starting to ticket for this offense. If you’re cited for distracted driving for using a cell phone in Las Vegas and want to fight the ticket without having to hassle with [...]

While many on both the left and the right debate President Obama’s Executive Order that halted deportation of undocumented aliens who were taken to the United States while they were children, one of the positive aspects of the executive order is that many young Latinos will now be able to receive driver’s licenses.

If you have been arrested for driving without a license in Las Vegas, log onto 24hourticketpower.com to fight or fix your ticket online without time consuming court visits.

Other states, such as Mississippi and Arizona have passed bills preventing these individuals from being licensed to drive by the state. 24hourticketpower.com can represent you if you have been ticketed for Southern Nevada illegal driving. The young people who qualify for the new federal guidelines will not be able to become [...]
Since it came into effect on January first, Nevada’s ban on cell phone use while driving has gotten significant press attention. However, this month another significant driving rule has come into focus that drivers must take note of. As of January 1 2012, when coming upon a bicyclist, Nevada drivers must move to the next left bound lane or if that is not possible, pass the bicyclist with a 3 foot space. Violators of the new Nevada law can face up to $1000 in fines and up to six months in jail. If you have been ticketed for passing too closely to a bicyclist in Las Vegas, Clark County speeding or a Henderson, NV DUI, contact us at 24hourticketpower.com today.

Bicycle safety advocacy groups, however, are increasing pressure on the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to increase enforcement. If you have been ticketed for a Southern Nevada bicycle safety infraction, a DUI in Las Vegas or for Henderson speeding, and want to fight or fix your [...]
Enforcement of the Nevada cell phone ban has begun in earnest. Las Vegas Metro Police officers have issued 230 citations in the last week for the new ban against talking or texting on a cell phone while driving. While the ban took effect on October 1, 2011, Nevada police only issued warnings until January 1st, when the Nevada ban on driving while using a cell phone took effect. If you have been ticketed for using your cell phone while driving in Las Vegas, speeding in Clark County or even a DUI anywhere in the South Valleys, contact us at 24hourticketpower.com today. Many in Las Vegas do not support the Nevada cell phone while driving ban. Bikers of Lesser Tolerance, a libertarian and 2nd amendment advocacy group set up a protest near an intersection Las Vegas Metro Police had set up a Cell Phone While Driving enforcement check point. Las Vegas police had set up the checkpoint because the intersection, Maryland Parkway and Flamingo Road, is one of the top-10 intersections for collisions in the south valleys. If you have been ticketed for violating the Nevada cell-phone while driving ban, in Henderson for running a red light or a DUI in [...]
Las Vegas, NV Questions have arisen about the behavior of a number of constables from Las Vegas Township. Clark County Commissioners questioned the constables when a video surfaced showing them cursing, making traffic stops and referring to themselves as police.

The Nevada resort association has released visitor numbers for the Silver State’s largest tourist attractions have increased again this month. Visitors are coming to Clark County and the South Valleys for more and more conventions and vacations. Automobile traffic into Clark County and the Las Vegas region declined, however. While this has resulted in a reduction of out-of-state Las Vegas traffic citations for people in their own vehicles, it is assumed that Clark County DUI and other Las Vegas traffic infractions in rental cars have risen proportionally. Every day in Las Vegas, tourists receive infractions for speeding, for running red lights in Clark County or even a DUI on the strip. In 1961, Nevada was the first state to enter the Driver License Interstate Compact which enables it and 44 other states to penalize drivers for similar infractions while out of state. Thus, should you get a Las Vegas DUI; those penalties will apply to your California license. If you get a speeding ticket in Clark County, points will be applied to your Utah traffic record. Should you be convicted of reckless driving in Southern Nevada, you could be at risk of losing your license to drive from another state. [...]
