Traffic, Speeding in Las Vegas

Basically, a new report says we should stop complaining, and those of you speeding in Las Vegas because traffic made you late are just whiny. Yeah, we don’t like these people either. Also, that’s not totally what the report said – that’s a just our little tongue in cheek short explanation. The real point of the study, and subsequent news coverage around it, was ranking different cities in the United States in terms of traffic and travel. How far away do people live from where they work? How long do they spend sitting in traffic, how long is their commute, these are the types of questions this survey set out to elucidate for the general public. And the word is, that Las Vegas is actually pretty well off, comparatively, in terms of our traffic. No, no one likes to sit in a parking lot on Interstate 15 when a Las Vegas car crash is blocking three lanes. Yes, everyone wants lights here and there timed better and merges to just be simple already! But at least according to this report we are doing okay, at least for major metro areas.

What’s not OK is getting a speeding ticket in Las Vegas because you did get stuck in traffic and then you were trying to make up time. Really any speeding ticket in Las Vegas in general, for whatever reason, can ruin your day or night. That’s where 24hourticketpower.com can help. Our online service will fight your Las Vegas speeding ticket totally online. Maybe you can afford to just send the ticket in with a check. But maybe you think you were unfairly ticketed, you can’t afford more points on your license, you don’t think the fine is correct or warranted, or all of the above. That’s why having top traffic attorneys in Las Vegas fight the ticket for you, and doing it online so you don’t have to visit our offices and you can avoid Las Vegas traffic court, that’s fantastic. That’s why we do what we do, to make your life easier.

Some detail from the article that made us think of speeding in Las Vegas:

“Perhaps not surprisingly, the world’s most congested roads are in Los Angeles, where commuters spent about 104 hours during peak traffic times in 2016. Moscow drivers came in second with 91 hours spent in traffic, followed by New York commuters with 89 hours, according to the traffic scorecard compiled by Inrix.

Bogota, Colombia, ranked fifth, followed by Sao Paulo, Brazil. Other cities in the world’s top 10: London, Atlanta, Paris and Miami.

Las Vegas ranked as the 52nd most congested city in the U.S. Being stuck in traffic cost the average Las Vegas driver $1,022 last year and roughly $715 million combined for the region, Inrix found.”

Las Vegas DUI numbers from checkpoint, Super Bowl

The numbers are out from at least on Las Vegas DUI checkpoint that was in place for the Super Bowl. The numbers, as they usually do, tend to lend ever more credence to the arguments of those who say that these are not the most effective means to catch drunk drivers. Now, our goal here at 24hourticketpower.com is to help people who have been arrested for DUI in Las Vegas. However, we still understand the Las Vegas Metro Police force’s point, and the Nevada-wide focus on drunk driving, as DUI accidents in Las Vegas can cause serious injury. But if they point is to prevent them, then there are statistically much better ways. Roving patrols, for instance, are shown to be “better’ at catching drunk drivers.

If you’re arrested for DUI in Las Vegas and need to connect to a lawyer day or night, 24hourticketpower.com is the place for you to visit. Our service can help you make the best of this admittedly unpleasant situation. Our top DUI attorneys know Nevada law and Las Vegas police. If we can’t get the charge thrown out, we’ll get it reduced down as far as humanly possible.

Here’s the full info, from the horse’s mouth so to speak, on the DUI checkpoint:

February DUI Checkpoint February 5, 2017 The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Traffic Bureau and Patrol Bureaus conducted a “Sobriety Checkpoint” on Sunday February 5, 2017 and Monday February 6, 2017, between the hours of 6:00 PM and 1:00 AM. The checkpoint was located on Blue Diamond Road west of Decatur Boulevard. The checkpoint symbolized Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s efforts to raise the publics’ awareness of our zero tolerance toward drug and alcohol impaired driving. The checkpoint focused on identifying drug and alcohol impaired drivers to include juveniles, young adults, and older adults, before they get involved in a collision, thereby increasing the safety for all Southern Nevada motorists. . The results of the checkpoint are summarized below Vehicles passed through the checkpoint: 4,255 Individuals tested: 130 Individuals Arrested for DUI: 19 Other Arrests: 0 Citations for Possession of Controlled Substance: 0 Administrative Citations: 0 Personnel assigned to checkpoint: 49”

Super Bowl DUI Arrest Focus in Henderson

You had to know this post was coming. As predicable a post as there is for an online DUI attorney to know about, especially in Henderson and the rest of the Las Vegas valley. Football and beer are fairly synonymous enough to begin with. But you throw in the biggest of football games in the biggest sports gambling city and the biggest party city in general, and you have really got to worry anyway about a DUI enforcement presence for this night. Sure enough, they were out in force to arrest Las Vegas drivers for DUI. We haven’t yet seen anything about the final numbers. But we did see this report about the Henderson DUI arrest push from not only Henderson police but other law enforcement agencies in the area. If you are arrested for driving under the influence in Henderson or anywhere else in the Las Vegas area, fight it online with ticketpower.com. Our 24 hour service connects you with a Nevada DUI traffic attorney who can make the best for you out of a scary and sometimes ugly situation. We get tickets and arrests thrown out, knocked down, shortened, points reduced, and everything possible to make your life better.

An interesting sign of the times is the other thing that police with be looking for is DWS as some refer to it as, perhaps you know it better as driving stoned. That’s the same for most legal purposes as an alcohol DUI. The same is true for prescription medicine as well. That is we believe part of why it isn’t really referred to as DWI anymore people it’s more than about the “intoxicated” therein at this point. Check out this blurb from the news on Henderson DUI:

“No matter how many times people are told to not don’t drink and drive, many don’t get the message.

In 2016, police say there were 42 fatal alcohol-related crashes in Clark County. Three of those happened in Henderson.

Police are also keeping an eye out for drivers who may be using marijuana since recreational usage of the drug is now legal. In addition to the increased patrols in Henderson, metro will also be taking extra steps including a DUI checkpoint in on Sunday”

More Las Vegas work zone speeding tickets coming

Remember to breathe deeply. Go to the bathroom before you leave. Don’t drink too many fluids on the drive. Have calming music, headphones or a Bluetooth so that you can make phone calls safely and legally, a snack, and some patience. More and more and even more road work is coming to Las Vegas, and it’s going to make the traffic problems we have already faced due to road construction look like child’s play. All of this is part of a broader project, Project Neon, that aims to cut down on traffic around the Las Vegas valley. But in the meantime, it will mean more traffic, as lanes are closed to allow for the construction. Above all, remember that Las Vegas speeding tickets will double in these work zones. There will be more officers checking speed, and out there to give you a work zone speeding ticket and ruin your day. It’s hard to not drive faster when you can when traffic is bad, because you have to get where you’re going. But it can be expensive. However, you can fight your Las Vegas work zone speeding ticket online with 24hourticketpower.com if you need to. We will make the ticket totally disappear if we can, and if we can’t we can at least get you the best outcome possible – lower fines, fewer points on your license, deferred judgment, all of these things are possible with 24hourticketpower.com fighting your Las Vegas speeding ticket online for you. You don’t have to come into our office, you don’t have to go to traffic court, but you do get to have top traffic ticket representation, and get to sleep easier.

Some more specific info on the upcoming projects that may cause Las Vegas work zone speeding tickets:

“U.S. Highway 95 will be reduced to two travel lanes in each direction between Rancho Drive and Interstate 15 from February through December, Dale Keller, the Nevada Department of Transportation’s project manager for Project Neon, told the Las Vegas City Council on Wednesday.

Drivers can also expect to see periodic closures along freeway ramps and surface streets, including Martin Luther King Boulevard.

And yes, NDOT officials are conjuring up another catchy nickname for the lengthy project.

The restrictions will allow crews to widen U.S. 95 as part of the larger Project Neon, the $1 billion effort to redesign and add traffic lanes along Interstate 15 from the U.S. Highway 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue.”

If you can’t avoid a red light violation in Las Vegas, fight it online

The best way to fight a red light ticket in Las Vegas is to not get one in the first place. Sounds silly, but of course it’s the truth. However, for many of you that isn’t an option – in which case, fight a Las Vegas red light violation ticket online with 24hourticketpower.com. We’ll give you some tips below to avoid them in the future, but if you’ve got one, you are well past that. So for now, you will need a good ticket attorney. 24hourtickpower.com connects you with one, and lets you take care of your citation without having to visit our offices or go to traffic court in the vast majority of instances. Doesn’t that sound nice, fighting your Las Vegas ticket for running a red light online, any time? That is why our clients love 24hourticketpower.com because it connects them with a traffic attorney and gets a legal professional on the case while they move on with their lives.

How to avoid getting a red light ticket in Nevada is another thing entirely, and here is some good advice from the good folks over at the Zero Fatalities campaign:

“In Nevada, as in other states, the main reason for all the unsafe driving at intersections is simple: people are in a hurry. Too often, the traffic signal’s yellow light has come to symbolize “hurry up” instead of “prepare to stop.”

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Slow down.
  • Stop on red and look right before turning on green.
  • Look both ways before entering an intersection.
  • Signal every turn and lane change.
  • Make a complete stop at traffic signals and stop signs.
  • Yield to other drivers and to bicyclists and pedestrians.

KNOW THE LAW

You are allowed to turn right on a red light after coming to a full stop, unless otherwise posted. You must be in the extreme right-hand lane and yield to pedestrians and all traffic moving through the intersection.

For left turns, more and more intersections have flashing yellow arrows. Here’s how they work:

  • When flashing, a vehicle is allowed to cautiously enter an intersection only to make the turn indicated by the arrow, but the driver must first yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians, then proceed with caution.
  • After it flashes, the yellow arrow becomes steady (non-flashing) or a green arrow. Treat the steady yellow arrow just like a standard yellow light—prepare to stop or safely clear the intersection before the red light appears.”

The Added Insurance Costs of a Las Vegas Speeding Ticket

A favorite of ours here at 24hourticketpower.com is the Road Warrior over at the Las Vegas Review Journal. A recent column under these auspices talked a lot about an issue that we and our clients are very well aware of: insurance. That is to say, how getting a Las Vegas speeding ticket, DUI, or any other road infraction can cost you even more than the ticket itself in rising insurance costs. That’s part of the reason we developed our website to help Las Vegas fight speeding tickets online. We know that getting the charge reduced, the ticket thrown out, or an infraction changed to one without points on your license can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year. That’s why 24hourticketpower.com makes it so easy for you to access our online legal service for Las Vegas speeding tickets and traffic tickets of all kinds. We’ll take care of everything for you – you won’t need to go to court or even to our offices in most cases, and we’ll get you the very best outcome possible.

One of the great things about Road Warrior is that he does the math out for you. How much will a Las Vegas speeding ticket add to your insurance? Well, let’s not take the words out of his mouth, but instead, from the article linked above, comes this:

“The average car insurance rate for Nevada drivers with a clean record is $1,591 a year, but that cost increases by 17 percent — to an average of $1,865.33 — after just one speeding ticket, according to NerdWallet’s analysis.

That average jumps 50 percent — to $2,392 — after a single DUI in Nevada, according to the report, released to mark National Impaired Driving Prevention Month in December.

With all the holiday parties planned in the next few weeks, drivers should pay heed.”

Of course we also love Road Warrior from interesting tidbits like this, from the same piece:

“Aquilino from Las Vegas wants to know whether the new signal at Las Vegas Boulevard and Serene Avenue could be equipped with a flashing yellow left-turn light. The east-west signals on Serene already are equipped with blinking arrows, but Aquilino said the change is needed because traffic is far heavier on Las Vegas Boulevard.”

Speeding Ticket in Las Vegas for 1mph Over the Limit

Most people think you’re fine if you’re going five miles per hour or less over the speed limit. They believe there is a “grace speed” where cops won’t really stop you, much less write you a ticket. This is just not the case. Yes, it’s true that usually, on a normal day and in normal conditions, officers will not pull you over nor will they issue you a ticket for driving less than five miles per hour over the speed limit. But as we can attest to, as can our clients, that doesn’t mean that’s always the case. We have handled cases for our clients where they were ticketed for under five miles per hour over the speed limit, and there are stories like this of Las Vegas speeding tickets for going just one mile per hour over the limit. Is it common? No. Is it something we see all the time? No. But that doesn’t mean it never happens. Perhaps the most common reason it happens is due to conditions. Speed limits are set a “best case” circumstance numbers where that is meant to be the fastest you are allowed to go in ideal conditions. No traffic, clear weather, no other factors. If it’s raining outside, police have every reason to ticket you for going well below the posted speed limit. We of course know that rain is not exactly common in the Las Vegas valley, but it happens. When it does, it often floods. Another common factor would be traffic. Officers may pull you over and ticket you for going too fast for the traffic flow, particularly if you’re weaving in and out of lanes to try to make it through the crush in the fastest time possible. Night time or other low visibility conditions can also be ways officer look to bust you.

Fortunately, anything like that that is up to interpretation is also up to counter argument. 24hourticketpower.com specializes in helping people in these instances fight their Las Vegas speeding ticket online. We can get it thrown out if there is any way to within the realm of possibility. If not, we’ll get you the best plea deal possible, tailored to your specific needs. Maybe you’d prefer more of a fine and fewer points on your license or a shorter time with a revoked license. Maybe you’d prefer to do traffic school, and it makes the most sense to do that. No matter what is best for you, we’ll fight for it. Best of all, you can handle everything online in most cases.

More Voices Against Las Vegas DUI Checkpoints

DUI checkpoints in Las Vegas and across the country are really not an efficient or effective means of keeping the roads safe, at least according to a fairly recent piece in the Las Vegas Review Journal. The piece covers the usual range of arguments that we have all seen in recent years. The officers it ties up from doing other patrols. The ease with which drivers who are impaired can avoid the checkpoints. The level of difficulty in even being able to spot a drunk driver from just having them roll down their window for a moment, as opposed to seeing them driving out on the street. Contrary to the belief of many, they don’t breathalyze everyone who goes through the checkpoint, only the ones who they suspect. That means visible intoxication, smell of alcohol, or other factors that alert police to possible suspicious activity. Then there’s the number of people who are inconvenienced  by the checkpoints themselves. Add to that the people who are out driving on the rest of the roads that do not have as many patrols because of the number of officers needed to man a checkpoint, and you get some real problems. 24hourticketpower.com can help with the problems if they include a Las Vegas DUI arrest or any other traffic violation. We specialize in quick service that is conducted over the internet for your convenience, though we are happy to speak with you in whatever format is preferable to you. 24hourticketpower.com is the best way to handle a Las Vegas DUI day or night.

We applaud and appreciate the need to keep streets safe, especially given the number of vehicle and pedestrian injuries in Las Vegas recently. We also know and have set up to be an advocate for people arrested for DUI in Las Vegas – everyone deserves the full coverage of the law. 24hourticketpower.com is committed to helping you with your Las Vegas DUI charge.

Here are some interesting tidbits from that recent piece we mentioned up top:

“More than 70 percent of drunken driving fatalities are caused by hardcore offenders with a blood alcohol content of 0.15 or above — i.e. almost twice the legal limit. These are the drivers that roving patrol officers should actively seek out and pull over before they reach a checkpoint. It’s easier for an officer to judge impairment by driving habits (not using a signal, swerving, not staying in the lane, etc.) than by looking at a driver’s face in a stationary vehicle at a checkpoint. (Remember, only a small fraction of those stopped at checkpoints are actually breathalyzed.)”

Thanksgiving DUI in Las Vegas Ruins the Holiday

Thanksgiving is a day of celebration, for most people living in the United States of America, anyway. It is a day abounding with the Three Fs: food, family and football. While the roots of Thanksgiving may be somewhat less glowing and uniformly happy than most of us realize, that’s also how history works in a lot of ways. Regardless of what it was or wasn’t, it is now what it is: a feast and a long weekend of celebration. Of course for some they head straight from being thankful for what they have to throwing punches in the line to check out during Black Friday sales events, but that also is another story.

However, there are also those of us who like to celebrate with a little alcohol as well as our food on Thanksgiving (most adults are probably in this category). Police have a tendency of setting up DUI checkpoints in Las Vegas for this very reason, since there are a number of Las Vegas vehicle accidents related to it. That almost always lends itself to at least a few people getting arrested for driving under the influence in Nevada on an otherwise celebratory evening. This is a truly unfortunate way to spend an evening: sitting in a jail cell in Clark County after being arrested for DUI in Las Vegas on Thanksgiving or one of the days around it. It certainly takes a lot of the “giving thanks” out of the holiday.

Not to worry, though, with 24hourticketpower.com you can fight a Las Vegas DUI online while most law firms are shuttered for the holiday. Put some basic information into our online system and our Las Vegas DUI defense lawyers will get started right away. You can at least rest easy over the next few days knowing you’re connected with a top DUI attorney in Nevada. We know all the tricks and tips to check first to see if we can get you out of the DUI altogether. If it can be thrown out through any number of technicalities or misreadings, we’ll get it done and have it completely off your record. If not, 24hourticketpower.com and our top Las Vegas DUI lawyers will get you the absolute best deal possible in a plea bargain, and help you keep the worst off your permanent record. At 24hourticketpower.com we know just how helpless you can feel facing this – so don’t face a DUI charge in Las Vegas alone, let 24hourticketpower.com help you fight it online and with ease.

Nevada DUI Laws May Get Harsher

Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD as they are often known, is again calling for stricter and harsher sentencing for drunk driving arrests in Nevada. In fact, they are specifically calling for a harsher sentence for a first time Nevada DUI arrest and conviction. They would like to see ignition interlock devices as a mandatory consequence of a first time DUI offense. Let’s step back for a moment for those of you who are not aware: an ignition interlock device is something that you have to blow into before your car will start. Of course your breath has to be free of alcohol for it to allow the vehicle to start, for the ignition to turn on. Hence, the name of the machine. The Mothers Against Drunk Driving will be pushing for this type of legislation during the upcoming legislative session in Carson City. We here at 24hourticketpower.com will be following that legislative session closely, as we do for any legislative session. We obsessively monitor all changes to traffic law and Nevada DUI law so that we can continue to offer top notch online service for Nevada DUI arrest or citations, as well as all traffic law. 24hourticketpower.com is available at all hours of the day or night. We’ll get you the absolute best outcome for your Nevada DUI. Try 24hourticketpower.com today to fight a Nevada DUI online.

What is Nevada DUI law? These ignition interlock devices are part of it, to be sure, but so are many, many more pieces. Here is just a small section of Nevada DUI law – the things that we know so that you don’t have to:

“Illegal Per Se “Illegal per se” means that the operation of a vehicle by a person with a blood alcohol content (BAC) at or above the legally defined threshold constitutes an offense of impaired driving in and of itself. Nevada’s blood alcohol limit is .08 and .04 for commercial drivers. Note that these limits are only guides. Drivers can be arrested and convicted for DUI with a lower BAC reading or for driving under the influence of controlled or prohibited substances. (NRS 484C.110) Chemical Tests Failure to submit to a breath, blood or urine test as directed by a police officer results in a driver’s license revocation of at least one year. A blood sample can be drawn involuntarily if the officer obtains a warrant or court order.”

Got all that? That’s not even close to all of it. That’s why you need 24hourticketpower.com to fight your Nevada DUI online for you so that you don’t have to.
