Dealing with Las Vegas Driving Laws

Many visitors are not familiar with Las Vegas Driving Laws. Facing a DUI you were charged with while visiting Nevada can be a daunting task. The state of Nevada considers it a misdemeanor offence to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol to a degree that renders a person incapable of safely driving the vehicle or if the driver is found to have a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or higher. Tourists charged with this offence face a drawn-out, stressful, costly, and embarrassing process that involves multiple Courts and the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Las Vegas Driving Laws relating to DUI cases are complex and out of state defendants may find it impossible to decide between pursuit of case dismissal, plea bargain negotiation, and trying the case in court without the assistance of a qualified attorney.
