Nevada ranks #1 for Traffic Tickets

Nevada ranks #1 for Traffic Tickets Las Vegas drivers may want to put the pedal to the metal (the brake metal, that its), in order to avoid unpleasant consequences. According to a recent analysis completed by the National Motorists Association, Nevada ranks number one among the states most likely to issue Traffic Tickets. Georgia, Alabama, Florida and Maryland follow Nevada’s unfavorable lead, according to the association’s rankings. The motorists’ rights group created the rankings after analyzing ticket-related Google search queries. The association plugged in eight variations of “traffic ticket” into the search tool, said John Bowman, communications director for the National Motorists Association. The results showed how popular any given search term was in a particular location. This is the second such list released by the association, which began the rankings to distribute information that states and jurisdictions can’t easily collect and compare. Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Loy Hixson said the state’s high position doesn’t surprise him given its tourist destinations. “A lot of drivers are ticketed whether they’re local or tourists because we’re [focused on] keeping people safe,” he stated. Hixson also said that Interstate 15 is a major reason for Nevada’s number 1 ranking because of the thoroughfare’s high volume of traffic. Wyoming and Montana stayed near the bottom of this year’s list, according to the report.

Distracted Driving Not Just Limited to Texts

  Though the uprising of ‘texting-related’ Las Vegas Traffic Ticketscannot be denied, there are a multitude of other ticketable offenses that fall under the category of “Distracted Driver.” In short, anything that takes the driver’s attention off the road and onto something else is an offense worthy of a costly ticket and points on your Nevada driving record. These offenses include but are not limited to: eating while driving, self-grooming while driving, turning to the back seat to silence a noisy child, fumbling around with your radio or MP3 player, turning to talk to the passenger next to you, flipping through a magazine or book while driving, etc. Please keep your eyes on the road whenever you are behind the wheel. It doesn’t take much for an accident to occur—and during that half second you look down to check the weather, grab something from your purse, or wipe the crumbs off your slacks—an unexpected obstacle could have appeared in front of you on the road. It’s not just your own driving you must remain focused on; it’s the driving of all the other individuals on the road. Remain defensive, alert, and ready to respond at all times. This is the only way to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

Independent Vendors on Strip Targeted

As you may or may not have noticed, an uprising of water-sellers, t-shirt pan handlers, CD hustlers and other self-described “broke” folk have been doing their best to make a fast buck on the Las Vegas Strip. With the economy in its current state, can you really blame them? Unfortunately, as city zoning would have it, selling anything on the Las Vegas Strip is strictly illegal (unless you are a casino, of course)… and if you are caught in the act by Metro (who are now trolling the strip undercover), you could be fined, jailed, or face other severe penalties. Sadly, many of the individuals recently cited and arrested for selling water and other such goods on the strip were unaware that their activities were illegal. They had seen the hoards of men handing out free porn materials, and assumed that selling good and health bottled water would not turn any heads. Well, this is Vegas. A free picture of a naked woman with her legs spread is more acceptable than paying for a small gulp of the vital life-force liquid itself. Dramatically stated, but true. Dozens of people have been recently ticketed due to the new county ordinance aimed at clearing the strip of independent vendors. The new law took effect last month, and according to county business license agents, “It enhanced our ability to conduct enforcement.” The county agents also said that their office has increased plain-clothed business license agents are patrolling the Strip until 1 a.m. each day. So, in effect, both business agents AND Metro are on the look-out of vendors. Beware. Also outlawed on...

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...

Penalties For Texing While Driven Worsen

If you HATE seeing people text while they’re driving, you will be happy to hear this news. Las Vegas Traffic Ticket violations for texting while driving have quadrupled in recent months. Due to strengthening of the existing law, police now have more power than ever to pull over a driver who is texting while behind the wheel. Las Vegas texing tickets are on the rise. Texting while driving is now considered a primary traffic offense (meaning, the cop needs no other reason to pull you over!) The point penalty has also also been raised from two to three points. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported over 3,000 deaths in 2011 due to distracted driving (caused in large part by hand-held devices.) If you are cited for a Las Vegas texting ticket while driving, or any other Las Vegas Traffic Ticket, contact the Office of Mark Coburn today for a free consultation.
