We are getting many e-mails from our clients with all kinds of questions about moving violations, traffic tickets or where to pay for traffic tickets in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In this article you will find answers to many of your questions.
Definition of a Traffic Ticket
A traffic ticket in Nevada is any citation that relates to a motor vehicle that is less than a Reckless Driving.
Nevada traffic tickets can be split into two categories:
- Moving violations
- Non-moving violations
A moving violation traffic ticket is usually issued for failing to obey a law that has to do with operating the vehicle.
Common traffic tickets that are moving violations include:
- Failure to obey a traffic control device (aka, running a red light or stop sign)
- Failure to use due care
- Failure to yield to a pedestrian
- Failure to signal
Traffic tickets that are moving violations can put demerit points on your license. These demerit points can raise your insurance payments and can even result in your license being suspended.
Although every case is unique, a traffic ticket attorney usually can drop the demerit points so you can keep your license and keep your insurance low.
A traffic ticket for a non-moving violation is usually issued for failing to have the proper documents or maintenance of a vehicle.
Common traffic tickets for non-moving violations include:
- No insurance
- Driving on a suspended driver’s license
- No registration
- Fix-it tickets (aka, broken headlamps, tail lights, bumpers)
Non-moving violations often carry very high fines. A good traffic ticket attorney can reduce or even dismiss these traffic tickets with proof that the reason for the citation has been fixed.
Even if you have not fixed the reason for getting the ticket, the traffic ticket attorney can get you extra time to fix it and, by doing that, will to save you money.

- In person, at the traffic ticket court counter
