More Las Vegas Speeding Tickets, or non-Speeding

Frankly, it is about time somebody put this bill forward. By “this bill” we mean a fine for driving too slowly. Now, regular readers of our blog might be somewhat surprised at the whole construction of the beginning of this blog. We are, of course, a site that helps people fight Las Vegas speeding tickets online. We deal with people who are in trouble for going too fast. Therefore it might be surprising to hear us say (or write, as the case may be) that we are glad to see potentially people being fined for going too slowly.

But let us face it: most of our clients are not going too slowly.

Here’s info on the bill on speeding in Nevada:

Legislative Counsel’s Digest:

1 Under existing law, a driver operating a motor vehicle at a speed so slow as to

2 impede the forward movement of traffic proceeding immediately behind the driver

3 on a highway with two or more lanes for traffic traveling in the same direction must

4 drive in the extreme right-hand lane of the highway. (NRS 484B.627) Section 1 of

5 this bill amends existing law by providing that a driver on a highway with two or

6 more lanes for traffic traveling in the same direction may not continue to operate a

7 motor vehicle in the extreme left-hand lane of the highway if the driver knows, or

8 reasonably should know, that he or she is being overtaken in that lane from the rear

9 by a motor vehicle traveling at a higher rate of speed. Exceptions are provided for:

10 (1) a vehicle in the extreme left-hand lane for the purpose of overtaking another

11 vehicle or preparing for a left turn; (2) a vehicle lawfully operating in a lane

12 designated for high-occupancy vehicles; (3) a vehicle engaged in the construction,

13 maintenance or repair of the highway; (4) when traffic conditions, inclement

14 weather, obstructions, hazards or compliance with an official traffic control device

15 or the directions of a peace officer make it necessary to drive in the extreme left-

16 hand lane; and (5) an authorized emergency vehicle in the course of his or her

17 official duties. A violation of the prohibition is a misdemeanor, and a violator must

18 be punished: (1) for the first offense within the immediately preceding 7 years, by a

19 fine of $50; (2) for a second offense within the immediately preceding 7 years, by a

– 2 –

– *AB329*

20 fine of $100; and (3) for a third or subsequent offense within the immediately

21 preceding 7 years, by a fine of $250.

22 Section 2 of this bill requires the Department of Transportation, for not less

23 than 2 years after July 1, 2017, to use reasonable means, including public service

24 announcements, to notify and advise the public of the requirements of this new

25 traffic law. Section 2 also requires the Department to prioritize the highways in this

26 State which have two or more clearly marked lanes for traveling in the same

27 direction based on the extent to which the effect of the requirements of this new

28 traffic law will have on traffic safety and maintaining the free flow of traffic, and

29 then, in priority order, as money becomes available for that purpose, to erect

30 advisory signs at reasonable intervals along those highways to advise drivers of the

31 requirements of this new traffic law

Proposed change to Nevada DUI law not going anywhere yet

In our ongoing quest to not only stay up to date ourselves, but to also keep you well informed, we have news that there is no news on a particular bill that is important to anyone convicted of a Nevada DUI. This Nevada DUI bill was recently covered in the Las Vegas Sun, if you want to read up on another summary of it. We follow it because that is our job. We are Nevada DUI lawyers who handle cases online as much as possible. That way we can save our clients time, and we can save our clients money.

At this point, there really isn’t much to follow. Despite news coverage and some other pushes, the bill has gone nowhere. You can see on the link below that there are no scheduled hearings for the bill, it has not been heard, and certainly it has not been voted on. But we will continue to keep tabs on it, that’s what 24hourticketpower.com does. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence in Nevada contact 24hourticketpower.com for help right away. We stay on top of all the latest Nevada DUI laws so that you don’t have to. See below for information from the legislature’s website on this proposed Nevada DUI law.

Legislative Counsel’s Digest:

1 Existing law requires a law enforcement officer to revoke the driver’s license,

2 permit or privilege to drive of a person who has a concentration of alcohol of 0.08

3 or more in his or her blood or who is found to have a detectable amount of a

4 prohibited substance in his or her blood or urine for which he or she did not have a

5 valid prescription or hold a valid registry identification card. The driver’s license,

6 permit or privilege of the person is revoked for 90 days. (NRS 484C.210,

7 484C.220) Section 3 of this bill requires a person whose license, permit or privilege

– 2 –

– *SB259*

8 has been revoked to install, at his or her own expense, an ignition interlock device

9 in each vehicle the person owns or operates as a condition to obtaining a restricted

10 license. Section 3 also revises the period of revocation to not less than 6 months.

11 Existing law further provides that the officer is required to advise the person of his

12 or her right to administrative and judicial review of the revocation and to have a

13 temporary license, valid for 7 days, which the officer must issue upon request.

14 Section 4 of this bill requires the officer to also advise the person that he or she is

15 required to install an ignition interlock device, at his or her own expense, in each

16 vehicle the person owns or operates as a condition to obtaining a restricted license.

17 With certain exceptions, existing law requires a court to order a person to

18 install, at his or her own expense, an ignition interlock device in each vehicle the

19 person owns or operates if the person is convicted of an offense involving driving

20 under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance which: (1) constitutes a

21 felony; or (2) constitutes a misdemeanor, but the concentration of alcohol in the

22 person’s blood or breath was 0.18 or more. Existing law also authorizes a court to

23 order a person to install an ignition interlock device if the person is convicted of a

24 misdemeanor offense involving driving under the influence of alcohol or a

25 controlled substance in which the concentration of alcohol in the person’s blood or

26 breath was less than 0.18. (NRS 484C.110, 484C.400, 484C.460) Section 6 of this

27 bill requires a court to order the installation of an ignition interlock device for all

28 persons convicted of an offense involving driving under the influence of alcohol or

29 a controlled substance. Section 9 of this bill authorizes a juvenile court to order the

30 installation of an ignition interlock device for a child convicted of an offense

31 involving driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. Section

32 3 requires the court to give the person day-for-day credit for any period during

33 which the person installed a device as a condition to obtaining a restricted license

34 before the issuance of an order from the court to do so. Further, section 7 of this

35 bill authorizes the court to extend the order of a person required to install an

36 ignition interlock device if the court receives a report from the Department of

37 Motor Vehicles or the manufacturer of the device that the person has committed

38 certain violations. Existing law authorizes a court to provide an exception to

39 ordering a person to install an ignition interlock device to avoid undue hardship to

40 the person. Section 6 removes this exception and instead authorizes the court to not

41 order a person to install an ignition interlock device if such an order would not

42 serve the interests of justice.

43 Section 8 of this bill requires the manufacturer of the ignition interlock device

44 to provide certain discounts and waive certain costs for persons whose income is at

45 or below certain federal poverty levels

Bill Heard to Change Marijuana DUI Arrest Testing

We’ve told you it was coming, and it has. It, in this case, is a bill to change how Nevada marijuana DUI arrests are made, based on how the DUI is calculated. Basically, almost everyone agrees that the way marijuana DUIs are measured in Nevada is worthless. You can be sober, and have been sober for quite some time, and still the test would consider you driving under the influence if you had used marijuana at all recently because the current test measures a level in your blood that does not correspond with impairment. Now, that test is still valid and still how you would be arrested right now. It’s important to remember that the law hasn’t changed yet, so if you’re arrested for a marijuana DUI in Nevada 24hourticketpower.com is the best online resource for you to get legal help with an arrest. We are available day or night. Best of all, 24hourticketpower.com stays up to date on all changes in the law, even ones that haven’t happened yet but are making their way through the legislature like this one. Remember that 24hourticketpower.com is the best way to fight a Nevada DUI, whether for marijuana, alcohol, or prescription drugs.

Here is some relevant text from the proposed bill to change marijuana DUI arrest testing in Nevada:

Legislative Counsel’s Digest:

1 Existing law provides that it is unlawful for any person to drive or be in actual

2 physical control of a vehicle on a highway or on premises to which the public has

3 access if the person is under the influence of a controlled substance or has certain

4 specified amounts of a prohibited substance in his or her blood or urine, including

5 marijuana and marijuana metabolite. (NRS 484C.110) Section 1 of this bill

6 removes the specified amounts of marijuana and marijuana metabolite in a person’s

7 urine, thereby providing that the amount of marijuana or marijuana metabolite in a

8 person’s system can only be measured through his or her blood. Sections 2 and 6

9 of this bill make the same changes to similar provisions of existing law relating to a

10 person driving or being in actual physical control of a commercial motor vehicle on

11 a highway or on premises to which the public has access or operating or being in

12 actual physical control of a vessel under power or sail on the waters of this State,

13 respectively. Sections 3-5 and 7-17 of this bill make conforming changes.

Beer saves driver from Las Vegas speeding ticket

This is certainly a unique way of getting out of a speeding ticket. Of all things, it was beer that got this driver out of a Las Vegas speeding ticket. These are not words we are used to writing, but read on if you will.

A driver, pulled over by the police for speeding, expects a ticket. They will certainly and rightfully try to talk their way out. To use every different kind of line, excuse, emotional tinge to their story, bare honesty and apology, you name it. Sometimes that gets folks out of a traffic ticket, sometimes it does not. In reality it often has very little to do with whether a police officer will give you a warning or not. They will look up your driving history, judge by the conditions, and more. Sometimes it boils down to how they’re feeling that day, sometimes there are traffic ticket quotas and sometimes, yes, your tack and story and demeanor or something else can inspire a Las Vegas Metro Police traffic cop to ticket you for speeding, and sometimes it can get you out of one.

But what got this person out of a Las Vegas speeding ticket was the crash of a wave of beer into the officer. It’s unclear whether it was a Nevada commercial vehicle crash with an automobile, an obstacle in the road, or attempting to avoid another vehicle that caused the cargo of a big rig to go flying off. The cargo in this case was reported to be one thousand pounds of beer. No, we don’t know why they used that metric, which seems an odd one for a beverage, let alone beer. There’s video from the officer’s dash cam that shows the wave of beer coming at him right after the sound of breaks, shattering glass, and warning calls. The officer was standing by the passenger side of the vehicle he’d pulled over, and can be seen getting soaked from somewhere below the knee down, and walking back to his vehicle. This, this is how the driver avoids a Las Vegas speeding ticket.

If you are not so lucky and get a ticket you can fight a Nevada speeding violation online at ticketpower.com. Our online system is quick and easy to use, our staff gets right on it and takes care of everything, and you get the best outcome possible while going on with life like nothing happened.

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. We stay on top of all DUI law and know how to get you out of the arrest, the points, the revoked license, whatever is possible given your unique situation. 24hourticketpower.com has a proven track record of helping customers, and creating satisfied clients, by fighting Las Vegas DUI arrests online.

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.”
