Driverless cars are coming and they are being tested by Google in Nevada. The cars, piloted by computers, are being designed to reduce traffic accidents and fatalities. However, while safety may be touted as the benefit to the proposed driverless vehicles, one wonders how Google and the other computer-driven car developers will solve many of the problems computers have today. What will happen if one of the computers crashes while the car is moving? Will the computers in the driverless cars be susceptible to viruses? What about unauthorized access to the automobile’s computer or hacking? Will the driverless cars be forced to obey local traffic laws? What if the driver is late for a meeting or having an emergency, will he be able to override the driverless vehicle’s safety protocols? Will the driverless cars be forced to maintain the speed limit on the freeway, even when the traffic around the vehicle is travelling over the speed limit? Regardless of all these questions, 24hourticketpower.com has a bastion of experienced Nevada licensed traffic attorneys that have significant experience in all Southern Nevada traffic and criminal law. The driverless vehicles will need to be driven on Nevada roads for 10,000 miles. In addition, [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]
A new law took effect today that has bicycle advocates cheering and some Nevada drivers sneering. Although our state generally embraces the robust and growing outdoor-sports culture that attracts tourists and satisfies residents, some of our fellow Nevadans become territorial when it comes to their privileges to drive their automobiles without restriction. Holding too tightly to this sense of privilege may become even costlier now: it could result in a Las Vegas reckless driving ticket. Under the new law -- known colloquially in bike circles as the "Three Sweet Feet" rule -- motorists must give cyclists a three-foot clearance when they pass them on a roadway. Depending on who you ask, this law may create a new privilege for pedal-driven travelers or it may codify a widely utilized, existing practice. In order to avoid Las Vegas car accidents, many drivers already clear cyclists by traveling into the next lane of traffic. But when this is not possible, many drivers put haste before caution and "buzz" bicycle riders by passing them with only the thinnest of margins. With this new Nevada cycling law in effect, drivers will have to make good choices and only pass cyclists when there is sufficient room [...]
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 [...]
With the tax season coming to a close, bloggers and other observers are weighing in on the year 2010 for one last time. One theme that has been recurring throughout the "blogosphere" is the conclusion that the increase in the issuance of traffic tickets across the country has been influenced by something other than promoting safety. Now that most traffic citation data from the past year are compiled and published, these analysts have hard facts to support their populist theories. If the national trend is mirrored in our state, it means that your Nevada speeding ticket might have been issued to meet an enforcement quota rather than keep your community safe. In most municipalities across the country, the passage of time from 2009 to 2010 brought a hike in the number of traffic citations issued. With regard to Nevada traffic tickets, a trend like this would be quite bizarre under usual circumstances -- in our state, the population has shrunk, record numbers of people have been stuck at home after losing their jobs, and gasoline prices were on the rise for most of the year. What's more, the size of individual police forces declined in most areas of the state, [...]
We have been saying for months that a combination of factors -- a comatose economy that has arrested tax revenue, increased demand for social services and other public programs, and a strong anti-tax attitude among portions of the public and many elected leaders -- has created a messy budgetary situation for many state and local governments. Here in the state of Nevada, hard-line attitudes at the statewide level are forcing program cuts and layoffs down from the state level to also affect city and county governments. Because the same hard times that are creating these forces are also contributing to increased need for social support programs like rental assistance, food stamps, and unemployment benefits, the money has to be made up somewhere. In Nevada, a popular source of that additional revenue is the issuance of additional Nevada traffic tickets. This trend is not specific to the Silver State but in fact has been replicated across the country by cities and states in similar binds. And although there has been a healthy debate about the scale and tenor of increased speeding ticket enforcement, there is also some new evidence that describes the phenomenon objectively. For example, a study looking at the [...]
Sometimes a driver is distracted and doesn't realize the traffic signal's red glow until the car is in the intersection; other times, a driver running behind schedule opts to accelerate through an "orange" light. For years, the test of this strategy was the presence of a traffic cop: no cop, no red light ticket. But things may be changing for Nevada drivers. Currently, photo enforcement evidence is not admissible in Nevada traffic court cases except in a limited number of situations, mostly related to the police themselves capturing the image rather than using an automated system. Nevada is among several states with these restrictions, but that may be changing soon. Nevada recently completed a year-long study examining the impact of photo enforcement, specifically red-light cameras. Other states have automated cameras and Arizona even monitored highway work zones before voters passed an initiative banning the cameras. However, in times of waning revenue many cities and states are looking to authorize automated enforcement systems. If the results of the Nevada red-light camera study show (as many experts think that they will) a decline in motor vehicle accidents attributable to this photo-enforcement system, Nevada traffic laws may change to increase the amount of [...]
