RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – Thousands of Nevadans will be able to drive without fear in a matter of weeks.
Assembly Bill 116, which decriminalizes minor traffic infractions, takes effect on January 1, 2023.
During last year’s parliamentary session, the legislation was voted on with the purpose of avoiding throwing individuals in jail because they can’t afford to pay or neglected to deal with a traffic concern.
“Our municipal courts are working hard on that and they’re just ensuring to comply with the law that if there’s a warrant for a traffic-related offense only, those warrants are going to be cleared,” said Sparks District Attorney Wes Duncan.
