We have all been there, One minute you are driving down the street (maybe a little fast) minding your own business and the next minute you are getting pulled pulled over and have a list of charges miles long.

There are a few things I have learned about getting pulled over in Las Vegas or North Las Vegas.

  • 1: Cops want to give you a ticket.
  • 2: You’re not going to walk away with just a speeding ticket.
  • 3: It is best to have someone go to court for you!
  • 4: Speeding tickets WILL cost you a lot of money!

So let’s cover this one at a time.

Number 1:  Copes want to give you a ticket.

We have all heard the jokes about it being the end of the month so cops need to make the payroll. But how much of a joke is that really?  I got pulled over for my back light being out and drove away feeling like I just got fucked over.  I know cops are not out to hurt us but they are also not there to listen to us. To the cop that pulled me over it did not matter that I was driving a friend’s car that was from out of state. I guess when he was in town for a few days he should have registered his car in Las Vegas so I could run to the gas station.  If the cop was out there really wanting to do good I think it would have been great for him to say. “Just wanted to let you know your back light is out” and called it good. But he had to run all my information and see what he could hit me with.

Number 2:  You’re not going to walk away with just a speeding ticket.

You know that it never happens that you will walk away with a speeding ticket and that’s it. It is a cops job to find things wrong and when they pull you over that’s just what they are going to do.  Just keep that in mind. It is there job to give you tickets and that will never change.

Number 3: It is best to have someone go to court for you!

I design WebPages and do SEO work. I have next to no idea what should be done in court and what is the best way to handle things.  And most people are just like me on this one. We have all been told to plead not guilty to speeding ticket but what do you do after that and more so does it really help?

I have seen it go both ways. I have seen it hurt and help a person and when it hurts it really hurts them.

The first time I had someone go to court for me I got really fucked! The guy did not show up and got a warrant for me and in the end just said “guilty” for me.

This last time (Ok it’s been 2 times) I have called a guy named Rick at Law Offices of Paul J. Adras and let me tell you it really does matter who goes to court for you.

I had a warrant for not showing up to court and needed to get it fixed without paying the thousand dollars the court wanted me to pay. So I started to make a few calls and well I thought I was going to jail. Everyone wanted like $700.00 just to take care of the warrant.  Then I found Rick at Paul J. Adras Law Office and they took care of it really fast and cost me about 1 tenth of the court wanted. (That about $100.00 for the lazy people like me)  And if you ask me that is better than waiting to go to jail or paying a thousand dollars to the court just for forgetting one date.

Number 4: Speeding tickets will cost you a lot of money!

This kind of goes hand in hand with number 3.  One way or another you are going to pay. There is nothing you can do about that. The real question is, how much do you want to pay?   I have gone to court and had it cost me $900.00 and I have had Rick help me get that down to $200.00.

To sum it all up if you live in Vegas you are going to need a good Las Vegas Traffic Attorney and the guys over at The Law Offices of Paul J. Adras, PC are great!  Trust me I have yet to save my work number in my phone (been here for about 2 years) but I saved their number.  They don’t over charge and they are kind and they don’t mess around.
