Fight Your Nevada Citation for Failing to Yield to Traffic Incidents Don't Accept Unfair Tickets - Protect Your Rights

Don’t just pay the fine if you received a citation in Nevada for allegedly failing to yield or slow down for a traffic incident. These tickets are often unfairly issued. But a dedicated lawyer can get the citation dismissed.

Understanding Nevada's "Move Over" Traffic Laws

Nevada law requires drivers to reduce speed, proceed cautiously, and move over if possible when approaching stopped emergency vehicles, tow trucks, and other incidents along the road. Violations carry fines of $150-200.

However, circumstances are not always clear-cut. A skilled attorney knows how to challenge questionable failure to yield tickets.

Potential Defenses Against These Citations

There are legal defenses an experienced lawyer may use to fight a failure to yield a citation, such as:

  • You did take proper action to slow down and move over
  • The incident scene was not visible or correctly indicated
  • There were unclear lane markings or obstruction
  • You were prevented from moving over by heavy traffic
  • The officer made an error in identifying your vehicle
  • The ticket violates procedural requirements

Our lawyers thoroughly investigate the facts and fight questionable tickets. We also negotiate with prosecutors, highlight mitigating circumstances, and advocate for dismissal. Don’t accept an unfair citation – fight back.
