Know the Law

Icon

Nevada’s law prohibits driving at a speed that is greater than “reasonable or proper, having due regard for the traffic, surface and width of the highway, the weather and other highway conditions.”

Icon

Absolute speed limits are those that are posted alongside roadways. If the absolute speed limit is 50 miles per hour and you drive faster than that, you’ve violated the law.

Icon

Speeding is a misdemeanor in Nevada. A violation carries up to six months in jail and/or a maximum $1,000 in fines.

Help Save a Life

Slow down. Drive the speed limit.

Icon

If you are in the left lane and someone wants to pass, move over and let them by.

Icon

Give speeding drivers plenty of space. Speeding drivers may lose control of their vehicle more easily.

Icon

Adjust your driving accordingly. Speeding is tied to aggressive driving. If a speeding driver is tailgating you or trying to engage you in risky driving, use judgment to safely steer your vehicle out of the way.

Call the police if you believe a driver is following you or harassing you.
