What Do I Do If I Receive A Speeding Ticket In Las Vegas?
You have to first decide whether you want to appear at court or hire a traffic ticket attorney to appear for you. Whether you appear for your speeding ticket, or you hire a lawyer, you have to decide whether you want to plead guilty, no contest or not guilty to your Las Vegas Speeding Ticket. If you hire a lawyer, the lawyer will most likely work out a deal with the prosecutor so that you plead no contest to a lower charge such as illegal parking which is a non-moving violation and carries no points against your driving record.
What Happens If I Ignore My Speeding Ticket?
If you forget your Court date or simply ignore your ticket, the Court will not just forget about it. Instead, the court will issue a bench warrant for your arrest. Not only could you be arrested if you are pulled over, having a bench warrant drastically increases the fines and fees associated with your Las Vegas speeding ticket.
What Will Happen To My Driving Record If I Receive A Speeding Ticket In Las Vegas?
If you plead guilty or no contest to your Las Vegas Speeding Ticket, you may face having “points against your driving record.” Nevada used a demerit point system for every traffic ticket conviction. The more serious the violation the higher the number of points. If you receive enough demerit points, 12 or more, your driver’s license could be suspended. Las Vegas Speeding Tickets generally follow this point structure:
Speeding over the limit by:
- 1 to 10 MPH: 1 point.
- 11 to 20 MPH: 2 points.
- 21 to 30 MPH: 3 points.
- 31 to 40 MPH: 4 points.
- 41 MPH or more: 5 points.
Will I Have To Go To Traffic School If I Receive A Speeding Ticket In Las Vegas?
Whether or not you go to traffic school will depend upon the Court in which your citation was issued and your prior driving history. In some Las Vegas Courts, traffic school is required. Some Courts will allow you to “buy out of traffic school” which means that instead of attending traffic school you can pay a higher fine.
What Does It Cost If I Receive A Speeding Ticket In Las Vegas?
The fine associated with your ticket should be listed on the ticket as your “bail amount.” This is the fine that the Court is asking you to pay. Fines vary across the state depending on court, county and the driver circumstances (license type, driving record, etc.). If you hire an attorney to help you with your Las Vegas Speeding Ticket, you will also have to pay the attorney a small fee to handle the ticket. If you attend traffic school, you will need to pay for that as well.
