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....

Las Vegas Pedestrians

More bad news from the streets of LV. Pedestrians are being killed by careless drivers more than ever in Southern Nevada. Recently, Dana Goudie, and her dear friend, Scott Buchard, were crossing the Las Vegas Strip when they were suddenly struck by a Honda Accord being driven by a 23-year-old male. Both pedestrians were killed. Shortly after that accident took place, yet another pedestrian was killed while taking a walk: 71-year old Robert Legesque. Mr. Legesque was pronounced dead in Henderson after a Jeep Commander driven by a 78 year-old-male struck him full force. It is reported that the driver had lost control of his SUV and began to drive on the sidewalk. If you’re a pedestrian (or bike rider) in Las Vegas, please take extra care to watch out for careless drivers who are not watching out for you. 2012 has been an especially dangerous year so far on Las Vegas roads and highways. And though the Las Vegas Regional Transit Commission is working hard to find solutions that will reduce the number of wrongful deaths in Las Vegas, it is you alone who is ultimately responsible for your own safety. Stay alert, stay aware, and stay safe. The same advice can be applied when you climb behind the wheel. Nothing is worth the regret, suffering, and severe consequences you will face if you kill another human being due to gross negligence when you’re behind the wheel. Stay within the posted speed limits, be mindful of crosswalks, and try to stay patient behind the wheel.   If you receive a Las Vegas Traffic Ticket or have questions regarding...
