The Joining Forces Grant is back at it again, with Henderson being the focus of careless driving tickets in Las Vegas for failure to yield to pedestrians. We wrote about this program very recently, and the number of people ticketed in North Las Vegas for pedestrian safety and careless driving. Well, the tickets keep on coming. This time, as we mentioned, was focused on a different part of the valley. Police issued over 110 traffic tickets in Henderson for failure to yield to a pedestrian, which generally falls under the legal umbrella of careless driving. Henderson police officers also issued a number of tickets for other violations that they saw during their stepped up enforcement program, which lasted a week. Only one pedestrian was ticketed for not crossing the street safely or in a marked crosswalk or with the traffic light. That number is surprisingly low, given the number of pedestrian accident injuries in Southern Nevada when people were crossing the roadway either not in a crosswalk or against the walk light. Police also issued a whole bunch of tickets for drivers with other kinds of problems or infractions. Things like driving without current insurance, driving with a suspended or [...]

Uber is coming to Las Vegas, it seems. If you’re not familiar with Uber, you’re probably not alone. A smartphone app that is popular in many big cities, you would only know it if you are someone plugged into that scene, or perhaps had lived or spent significant time in San Francisco, New York, or a few other cities it services. If you’re unfamiliar with what a smartphone or tablet app is, you may want to google the term and read up a little before heading any farther. The Uber app is paid ride sharing. The app connects you with a private driver who will give you a ride from where you are to wherever you’re going next for a prearranged fee. The app maker keeps twenty percent, and the driver keeps the rest.  One of the interesting things, and what got us here at interested, is the qualifications for drivers. The must carry insurance and have a spotless record with law enforcement to be licensed as an Uber driver. Now, we don’t know exactly what “spotless” means to Uber yet, since they’re new. But if it means not have any Las Vegas traffic tickets on your record, this [...]

There is good news for those among us who just can’t seem to stay away from traffic tickets. Whether it’s from speeding or running a red light or a cell phone violation (or more), one candidate for Clark County District Attorney wants to have the DA’s office drop charges in Las Vegas traffic tickets where no property was damaged and no one was hurt. That would be good news for anyone staring down the barrel of a traffic ticket they can’t afford to pay, whether it be the money, the points on their license, or the hit to their insurance premium that comes with a traffic conviction. Before you get your hopes up, though, a dash of cold water: according to political handicappers, this candidate, Jim Duensing, appears to have very little chance of winning the race. A Libertarian, Mr. Duensing is said to have virtually no money, political backing, or hope of prevailing in current the current district attorney, Democrat Steve Wolfson, in heavily Democratic Clark County. That’s why you need When the candidate who wants to throw out your Clark County traffic ticket has very little chance of becoming district attorney, you need an actual traffic attorney [...]

We may be learning at least a part of what Metro is doing with its reallocation of staff resources following the controversial decision to stop sending officers to non-injury accidents. What they’re doing may actually lower the number of Las Vegas traffic tickets that they are handing out. Bear with us a moment on that. According to recent news in Las Vegas, cops are going to be getting out of their vehicles more. New policing strategies has the uniformed metro officers who are often handing out Clark County traffic tickets instead hopping out of their vehicles and walking around and talking to people for forty five minute stretches. This is both a community policing and a hot spot centric enforcement strategy. While many crimes are committed by the same small group of criminals, the same holds true for places. A recent study showed that 95% of crime takes place in 5 percent of a particular region. So instead of focusing on individuals, police will be patrolling by vehicle then stopping and hopping out and walking around talking to people and checking things out for 45 minutes. What does that mean for traffic tickets in Las Vegas? Well, it could mean [...]

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. [...]

Are Nevada traffic tickets credible in light of recent scandals?

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 [...]

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

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 [...]
