In Nevada, a speeding ticket is more than just a fine. It can lead to points on your record and other penalties that can impact your life in various ways.
There are 4 basic speeding laws that all drivers should follow:
If you follow the posted speed limit, you should not receive a speeding ticket in Nevada. Be wary of when you are in school zones, pedestrian safety zones, or construction zones. You must drive 15 miles per hour in a school and pedestrian zone. For a construction zone, there will be a posted reduced speed within the work zone. If you drive above these speed limits, you’ll receive a fine double that of a normal speed violation. For example, if the regular fine is $150 dollars, you’ll receive a $300 fine if you’re speeding in a work zone or school zone. People that drive well beyond the posted limit may also face reckless driving charges.
We believe that a minor mistake should not dictate the course of your life, and we work hard to minimize the impact of traffic tickets. Indeed, our goal is to protect the interests of clients facing any type of moving violation.
If you received a ticket for speeding or a similar moving violation, you have options. Many people assume that simply paying the ticket and moving on is the best course of action, but violations could stay on your record for as long as three years.
Any type of moving violation leads to demerit points on your Nevada license. Driving less than 10 miles per hour over the posted speed limit will result in one point and driving 11 to 20 miles per hour over the speed limit will result in two points. Additional charges, such as those for driving dangerously, can lead to as many as eight points on your license. You may also have to attend traffic school. If you accumulate 12 points, your license will be suspended or, in some cases, revoked. Due to the serious nature of speeding, you are unable to request record sealing until a year after your misdemeanor charge. If you decide to not fight the charges, you may face employment troubles and they will affect your life negatively in many other ways.
