However, getting a speeding ticket doesn’t mean that your driving record, insurance rates and your time has to suffer. This article explains the basics about Nevada Speeding Tickets and how a traffic ticket attorney can help.
The basics of Nevada law says “A person shall not drive a vehicle greater than is reasonable or proper, having due regard for the traffic, surface and width of the highway, the weather and other highway conditions.” There are more specific laws that talk about school zones, construction areas and even operating a vehicle at a minimum speed. Just know that if you violate these laws, you are likely to be the beneficiary of a Nevada speeding ticket.
The penalties for a Nevada Speeding Ticket include fines (not more than $1,000), possible jail time (not more than 6 months) and possible driver’s license suspension (not more than a year). YIKES!
