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....

“Click It or Ticket”: Strong Message for Non-Seatbelt wearers in Las Vegas, Memorial Day Weekend

“Click It or Ticket”: Strong Message for Non-Seatbelt wearers in Las Vegas, Memorial Day Weekend

“Click It or Ticket” If you aren’t in the habit of protecting your life by buckling up every time you sit down in a motor vehicle, you better form that habit fast! The death rate is rising for non-seatbelt wearing vehicle occupants, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2012 alone, over 10,000 individuals were involved in fatal crashes; the saddest part of this statistic is that their lives may have been saved if they had simply chosen to buckle up. The Nevada Highway Patrol is rightly upset with the amount of fatalities due to careless mistakes such as these, and as a result, they are once again cracking down on seatbelt laws by issuing more Las Vegas seatbelt tickets. Specifically, from May 19-June 1, the NHP will be gently reminding people to buckle up with their 2014 “Click It or Ticket” campaign. What does that mean to you? Well, you better buckle up in Las Vegas on Memorial Day Weekend because law enforcement will be amply present on the roads… and ready to write you a ticket for not obeying the law. For more information on the “Click It or Ticket” campaign, you may visit www.nhtsa.gov/ciot.

New Traffic Signal Activated At Bridger and 1st Street, Las Vegas

New Traffic Signal Activated At Bridger and 1st Street, Las Vegas

New Traffic Signal Activated At Bridger and 1st Street, Las Vegas, So be Wary As per Las Vegas Traffic News on the City of Las Vegas’ website, as of May 2nd 2014, there is a new traffic signal located on the corner of Bridger and 1st street. This is a signal with a purpose: the signal was strategically placed at this particular downtown intersection as part of an ongoing process to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety. If you haven’t realized it yet, pedestrians and bicyclists don’t have it easy in Las Vegas. While states like Oregon and Washington, or countries like the Netherlands boast super-friendly bike lanes (and even bicycle parking garages!) Las Vegas lags behind in “going green” and in adhering to the needs of the many pedestrians and bicyclists in the Valley. While the new signal isn’t meant to be a Speed Trap, police will issue tickets if you do not stop your car accordingly. A special thanks to Las Vegas Electric for constructing this new Las Vegas Traffic Signal, with the intent to provide safer and more efficient passage for those on foot, bike, car, moped, or even llama. If you have received a ticket for speeding or failing to stop at a stop sign or traffic signal, call Ticket Attorney Law Office of Mark Coburn today. Mark Coburn is a trusted Traffic Attorney in the City of Las Vegas who may have your ticket drastically reduced. Call for your free consultation at (702)...

Speeding: One of the Leading Causes of Traffic Crashes

Speeding: One of the Leading Causes of Traffic Crashes

Las Vegas has had it’s fair share of traffic crashes, but as of late speeding is one of the leading causes! The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) continues to publish disturbing findings regarding speeding in Las Vegas and traffic accidents. According to NHSTA statistics from a 2009 report, “39 percent of 15 to 20-year old and 37 percent of 21 to 24-year old male drivers involved in fatal crashes were speeding.” Not only does this prove a correlation between speeding and traffic-related fatalities, but it also says quite a bit about the mentality of younger (mostly male) drivers. The NHTSA also reported, in 2009, that there were 10,591 speeding-related crashes over the course of the previous year. Preparedness of our young drivers aside, the economic cost of speeding-related accidents to our society is estimated by the NHTSA to be $40.4 billion per year. And remember, that’s not taking into account personal losses, or, even worse, the loss of human life… which bears no price tag. Speeding in Las Vegas is not something to be taken lightly, no matter what your age/sex demographic. And when you add alcohol into the mix, the situation worsens. In the same 2009 report, it was shown that 43% of fatal speeding-related crashes had drivers with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. These NHSTA statistics are grave and show that we still do not have a handle on keeping reckless drivers off the road. While a true “accident” can happen to anyone, there is no excuse for excessive speeding or driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you...
