Dangers Of Speeding 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2006, 38% of fatal crashes in Nevada were caused by speeding.  The faster you are going, the longer it will take you to stop.  If you double your speed, the braking distance will not double; it will be four times as long.  An unexpected hazard could appear and you may not be able to stop to prevent a crash.  An unexpected curve in the road may appear and you might lose control. The conditions of the road play a part in how fast you should be driving.  If you are driving on a wet or icy road you may lose control of the vehicle and cause an accident.  The faster you go, the more severe the injuries/accident.

Dealing With a Nevada Speeding Ticket 

If you were exceeding the speed limit and it was clearly marked, you might want to plead guilty and pay the fine without getting an attorney involved. Appearing in court and contesting the ticket is always an option.  If you contest the ticket you will want to have all of the facts of the situation (time, weather conditions, location, and account of what you and the officer said).  If at trial you feel you did not receive the appropriate verdict you can appeal.  You should hire an attorney to mount an appeal.

How Nevada Police Determine Speeding 

One of the most common instruments an officer will use to catch you speeding is a radar gun.  In this case, radio waves are transmitted at a specific frequency.  The waves bounce off of your car and are picked up by a receiver.  The change in frequency of the waves will tell the officer how fast you are going.

Driving Record Points 

As part of Nevada’s ‘Driver Improvement Program’, demerits are assigned to your driving record if a traffic violation occurs.  Demerits are assigned once a conviction notice is received by a court.  Your Nevada driver’s license will be suspended if 12 demerits or more are received in one year.   Attending a Nevada DMV approved traffic safety school will remove a maximum of 3 demerits in a one year period.  Even if points are removed by taking the class, the record of the conviction will remain as part of your driving history.

Nevada Speed Limits

In Nevada you must follow a Basic Rule of driving at a “reasonable or proper” speed.  In addition to abiding by the posted Nevada speed limits, drivers must determine a safe speed by the amount and type of traffic, weather conditions and visibility, and the type of road (flat/straight/steep/curvy/wide/narrow).  If the conditions warrant, speed may have to be reduced to less than the posted speed limit.  You must never drive at a speed that will endanger yourself or others.
