What are Nevada's laws regarding cell phone use while driving?

According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, a person who is talking on the phone while operating a motor vehicle is four times more apt to be involved in a car accident than those who don't. In fact, if a person is using a cell phone while behind the wheel of a car to send a text message or make a phone call, his or her reaction time can be delayed just as much as if the person was driving while intoxicated. This is true even if the motorist is using their cell phone hands-free.

One killed, one injured in catastrophic car crash on I-80

After a night out on the town, if a person is too intoxicated to drive, they have options. They can take a taxi or the bus home. They can catch a ride with a sober driver. They can even remain where they are until they are no longer intoxicated. Unfortunately, intoxicated drivers will still take to the streets of Nevada, causing catastrophic accidents.

Road rage leads to fatal accident in Nevada

Driving can be a stressful and sometimes aggravating activity, particularly when those who share the road are driving recklessly.

Expert medical witness banned from testifying


Expert witnesses may be vital part in a Nevada personal injury lawsuit to prove a cause of action or to bolster a defense. In a rare move that may impact witness qualifications, two Las Vegas judges barred a local neurosurgeon from presenting testimony in two cases because he was biased against plaintiffs in personal injury cases.

Traffic deaths rise with economy


The stronger economy has encouraged motorists to drive more often and more dangerously. The risk of personal injury and dying in a car accident in a late model car has risen slightly according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The overall fatality rate involving 2014 models is 30 per one million registered vehicle years. This is an increase from 28 for 2011 models. This latest study is based upon car crash fatalities that occurred from 2012-2015. In its last study, however, IIHS found that the overall rate dropped by almost a third over a three-year period. This was attributed to improved vehicle designs and safety technology.
