What types of traffic citations are there in Nevada?

Usually there are 3 types of traffic violations in Nevada:

These include:

  • Parking Violations
  • Non-moving Violations
  • Moving Violations

Each type of traffic citation above carries different penalties and fines.

For example, most moving violations will require the payment of a fine and may even require traffic school. You should also expect to have to attend Court at least one time if you receive a moving violation ticket.

For a non-moving violation, you may also have to pay a fine or present proof to a judge that the item that whatever led to the ticket is fixed. 

What exactly is a parking violation?

A parking violation usually involves a minor infraction. 

This can include parking in a handicap spot without a placard or appropriately designated handicap plate, parking in a metered space without paying for it and parking within 20 feet of a fire hydrant. 

Usually, parking citations can be resolved in exchange for paying a fine. 

They do not carry any demerit points and will not go against your driving record. 

In most cases, it is not necessary to have a traffic ticket attorney handle a parking citation.

What is a non-moving violation?

A non-moving violation usually involves an issue regarding the whether you are legally allowed to drive. 

The most common non-moving violations include:

  •  illegal cell phone use while driving

  • driving without proof insurance 

  • driving without proof of a valid driver’s license 

  • failing to use a seatbelt

Most non-moving violations are misdemeanors that prosecutors will agree to resolve for a fine. 

However, convictions for misdemeanors in Nevada can potentially carry up to six months in jail and/or up to $1,000 in fines.

What is a moving violation?

Moving violations are the most common types of a traffic tickets. 

These types of violations include running red lights, speeding, failing to stop at stop sign, making an illegal U-turn, DUI, reckless driving and aggressive driving. 

Moving violations are usually misdemeanors but depending on the severity of the violation may be a felony. 

They usually carry substantial fines, possible jail time, result in points against your driving record and may cause your insurance rates to go up. 

It is strongly recommended that individuals receiving a traffic ticket for a moving violation consult a traffic ticket attorney.

How much is my traffic ticket?

In most cases, the cost of your traffic ticket, if you just plead guilty and pay the fine is listed on your traffic citation as your bail amount. This is usually the fee that it would cost you to simply pay the traffic ticket and make it "go away." 

In addition to this fee, the Court that is handling your ticket will also assess you administrative fees. The administrative fees will be in addition to the bail amount listed on your ticket. Again, these will be the fees if you simply pay the ticket. 

If you hire a traffic ticket attorney, in some cases, the Court may lower the fees for your ticket or reduce, or even waive, the administrative fees. 

For more information about the fees and costs associated with your traffic citation, you can call us at (702) 433-2889 or fill out our on-line form to get more information. 

Will my traffic citation go on my driving record?

Nevada uses a demerit system for traffic citations. 

Depending on the severity of the offense identified on your traffic ticket, will depend on the number of demerits that will go against you on your driving record. 

For example, a reckless driving citation is an 8 point demerit. 

A simple speeding ticket can be 1 to 5 demerit points, depending on your speed. If you receive 12 or more demerits on your driving record in any 12 month period your license can be suspended for a 6 month period. 

For more information about the demerit system, click here

If you have the citation dismissed or reduced to a non-moving violation, the traffic ticket should not show up on your driving record. 

In most cases, for first offense traffic tickets or minor traffic infractions, the Court will reduce the citation to a non-moving violation or a parking ticket. 

Non-moving violations are 0 point demerits and will not show up on your driving record. 

Should I hire a traffic ticket attorney to help me?

There are many reasons to hire a traffic ticket attorney

First, prosecutors are more likely to negotiate with a traffic ticket attorney. 

Most prosecutors will likely reduce the ticket, might reduce the fine and may even dismiss the ticket if you are represented by a traffic ticket lawyer. 

Second, if you go alone, you may find that it may take several court appearances to resolve your case and the prosecutors may not be willing to negotiate on the citation. 

Third, if you just decide to plead guilty and pay the fine, you could end up with points on your record, increased insurance rates, a suspended driver’s license, and the possibility that traffic citations could be used against you in a civil lawsuit.

Hiring a traffic ticket attorney is usually inexpensive

Hiring a good traffic ticket attorney usually means you will not have to go to Court

A good traffic ticket attorney may be able to have your citation reduced so you will not have points on your record or any increase in your insurance rates.

What happens if I forgot to pay my traffic ticket?

First and foremost, it is important not to panic if you forgot to pay your traffic ticket. 

Second, you will need to check and see if your traffic ticket has gone into warrant. 

If the Court has issued a bench warrant for you, it is important to speak with a traffic ticket attorney right away to have your warrant quashed. 

For more information about bench warrants, check out our page: Warrants

If your ticket has not gone into warrant, but you have missed the deadline to pay, it is imperative that you contact a traffic ticket attorney to handle the ticket, or if you want to take care of the ticket yourself, that you immediately contact the Court issuing the ticket.

Depending on how late you are in paying handling the ticket will depend on how much you will have to pay the Court in late fees, whether or not a warrant will be issued and whether or not your citation will be reported to DMV and/or whether or not the citation will go on your driving record. 

Keep in mind that forgetting to pay a traffic citation is not the end of the world. 

If you have forgotten to pay your citations, we can help. Call us at (702) 433-2889 or fill out our on-line form for more information.
