Traffic Stops & Racial Profiling

Traffic Stops & Racial Profiling

According to (NRS 289.820) “Racial profiling” means reliance by an officer upon the race, ethnicity or national origin of a person as a factor in initiating action when the race, ethnicity or national origin of the person is not part of an identifying description of a specific suspect for a specific crime. Basically, Nevada law requires you pull over when signaled to do so by a police officer. You are recommended to follow all legal instructions received from the officer. -To assist the officer in determining that you are not a wanted fugitive, keep your hands in sight at all times. (i.e. Upon initial contact, keep your hands on the steering wheel unless instructed by the officer to do otherwise.) -If/when the officer asks to see paperwork, let the officer know what you are intending to do. For example, “I’m going to get my registration in my glove box.” If for some reason there is a firearm in the vehicle, LET THE OFFICER KNOW IMMEDIATELY. -If you are stopped at night, turn on the vehicle’s dome light. -Stay in the car unless directed by the officer to exit the car. If you followed these guidelines but feel you were a victim of racial profiling during a routine stop, you have the right to report your concerns to the law enforcement agency in which the officer works. We wish you the...

“Move-Over” Laws in Nevada

If You Have a Fender-Bender Regardless of whether or not you believe there is damage to your vehicle, you must NOT obstruct traffic after a fender-bender. Obviously, if you are in a bad crash and your car is not able to move from the road, this rule does not apply!

When you Notice an Emergency Vehicle (moving)   When any official vehicle of a regulatory agency, making use of flashing lights, approaches you from behind (or on the other side of the road) you must yield the right-of-way by immediately driving to a position parallel to, and as close as possible to, the right-hand edge or curb–clear of any intersection. You need to stop and remain there until the emergency vehicle has passed, unless otherwise directed by a police officer. When you Notice an Emergency Vehicle (stopped) According to NRS 484B.607, the driver of a vehicle approaching a stopped emergency vehicle must: Decrease the vehicle speed to a speed that is reasonable and proper and less than the posted speed limit Proceed with caution Be prepared to stop; and If possible, drive in a lane that is not adjacent to the lane in which the emergency vehicle is stopped unless the roadway, traffic, weather or other conditions make doing so unsafe or impossible. Near Bicycles Motorists passing a bicycle must move into an adjacent lane to the left, if possible. If not, you must pass with at...
Update: Facts for Potential Uber Drivers in Las Vegas

Update: Facts for Potential Uber Drivers in Las Vegas

Uber is expected to be fully operational in Las Vegas by the end of the summer. But there are quite a few factors to consider before becoming an Uber Driver, including the expenses involved. Uber drivers must pay for their own gas. 20% of the collected fare goes to Uber as a commission an additional $1 per fare is collected by Uber as a “Safety Fee” which funds driver background checks Uber drivers are responsible for their own vehicle’s insurance, maintenance, and additional tax costs All those things considered, it is also important to note that many Uber drivers touch upon the fact that they are not tipped as often (if at all) in comparison to traditional taxi drivers. And, perhaps most importantly: what about the safety of the Uber drivers themselves? Many traditional cab companies have camera installed in the cars for the safety of the cab drivers. This extra precaution does not exist for...
