Multiple Traffic Offenses in Las Vegas
Receiving Multiple Traffic Tickets
Having multiple traffic citations is never an ideal position to be in. Once you have accumulated a certain amount of points on your driving record, the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles will have your driver's license suspended. Trust me when I tell you that you do not want to have your license suspended. Not only is it incredibly inconvenient, but once your suspension is over you will have to go through the trouble of getting your license reinstated.

How Multiple Tickets Can Affect You
If you have been issued a traffic ticket for the second, third, fourth, or even fifth time within one year, you should take the time to consult an experienced Las Vegas traffic ticket attorney about your legal options. Depending on the type of citations you have been issued, you could face a number of very seriously penalties. If you were ticketed for a moving violation, points will be assessed to your driving record based on the severity of the violation. For example, if you were issued a speeding ticket for driving 11 to 15 mph over the posted speed limit, 2 points will be assessed to your driving record. If you were issued a ticket for running a red light, four points will be assessed to your driving record. As soon as you have accumulated 12 points in a one-year period, your license will be suspended.
The situation is even more serious for people who have been charged with more than one traffic violation. Certain offenses, such as DUI, racing on the highway, and reckless driving, are already punishable by more than just demerit points. Should a person be charged with a traffic offense for the second time, or she may suddenly find himself or herself facing felony charges-as opposed to misdemeanor charges-and a number of penalties, including incarceration, large fines, probation, driver's license suspension or revocation, community service, and more.
