Las Vegas Work Zone Traffic Tickets: Safety in Construction Zones

Las Vegas Work Zone Traffic Tickets: Safety in Construction Zones

Las Vegas Work Zone Traffic Tickets Means Double The Penalty The U.S. Department of Transportation reports that work zone fatalities claim three lives daily in the United States. It may surprise that, more than 80% of these fatalities are not the workers, but are the drivers and passengers of the motor vehicles. Fast fact: a car driving at 60 miles per hour travels 88 feet per second, so, if you are driving 60 miles per hour past a sign that reads: “Road Work Ahead”, you will reach that work zone is just 17 seconds. It is understandable that drivers become frustrated when they must unexpectedly slow down due to Las Vegas construction delays, Las Vegas construction zone work, and other unforeseen holdups, but it’s important to remember that these instances are not there to inconvenience you; they are a necessary part of improving the Las Vegas roadways for future easy and flow of traffic. So, give yourself extra time during your commute so that you do not feel rushed when you are attempting to reach your final destination. Remember: Nevada law DOUBLES the penalty for speeding in a construction zone or speeding in a work zone, so you may end up paying up to $1,000 for a traffic ticket in Las Vegas. If you have already recently received such a ticket, and you would like the opportunity to discuss your options with an experienced attorney, call our Ticket Office today at (702) 382-2000....

Bad Neighborhoods + People Walking to the RedBox machine at Night = Reason for Suspicion

  How would you feel about getting pulled over while strolling down your sidewalk at night? This frustrating experience has happened twice to my partner and I, in our very own Las Vegas neighborhood. When we relocated to the West side of town, at the edge of Summerlin, we didn’t think we needed to do much research beforehand. We’d found a decent condo, were pleased that the location was near several major highways, and we signed our lease. Little did we know, we had moved into an extremely dangerous zone in Las Vegas and would be constantly battling for a moment’s peace among the sounds of the choppers in the sky at night (‘ghetto birds’, they’re called), the constant police sirens, and the domestic shout-outs at 2 a.m. All this we managed to laugh off over the months, and we even light-heartedly brushed off two attempted car thefts, a burglary, and odd circumstances such as a young woman jogging with a baseball bat in hand. “You never know,” she said. But where we drew the line and began to really reconsider our location, was when we discovered we could not even walk to the RedBox on the corner at night to return a DVD without getting pulled over.  Yes, we were quite literally pulled over on the sidewalk. “Why are you out here?” the officer began the interrogation. “We’re returning a DVD.” “In this neighborhood?” “Yes, is that okay? There’s a box right over there.” “You’re walking to the box?” “Yes. Why are we being stopped?” “People don’t normally walk around at night out here. I’m going to have...

Flavor Flav Arrested in Las Vegas Domestic Violence Case

Flavor Flav Arrested in Las Vegas Domestic Violence Case Entertainer Flavor Flav (whose legal name is William Drayton Jr.) threw his fiancee to the floor twice and grabbed before grabbing several knives and chasing while threatening to kill her 17-year-old son. These incidents took place in the couple’s home in Las Vegas, according to Metro Police. Luckily, the former rapper, hip-hop star, and reality TV personality did not succeed in stabbing his fiancee’s son. However, Flavor Flav did succeed in cutting his own finger with one of the knives before police arrived and arrested him at 3:30 a.m., according to the Metro police report. William Drayton, 53, faces a Las Vegas felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon and a misdemeanor count of Las Vegas battery-domestic violence. He could face up to six years in prison on the assault charge if convicted. His girlfriend of eight years, Elizabeth Trujillo, told police her earring was ripped out during the fight, which she said stemmed from an argument over infidelity. Trujillo told police that her son intervened after Drayton grabbed her and threw her to the ground; then the teen wrestled with Drayton before Drayton grabbed two large knives and chased him through the living room, according to the police report. He has also been arrested in the past for traffic tickets in Las Vegas. The teen told police he ran to his sister’s upstairs bedroom, where he said Drayton kicked in the door and threatened him while holding both knives. Drayton/Flavor Flav has a criminal history that includes arrests and convictions on traffic infractions, a month in jail for...
