Q: Can I speed to pass another vehicle?
A: No, in Nevada, one mile over the speed limit is speeding.
Q: Why are there two police vehicles on every stop?
A: It might seem that there are two police vehicles on every traffic stop but that is not the case. Most of the time when you see two police vehicles on a traffic stop someone in the vehicle has a warrant, the driver is intoxicated, or the officer saw something and wants to investigate further. The second vehicle is there for officer safety.
Q: Is it true when an emergency vehicle is on the side of the road with its emergency lights on, I have to slow down or moved over a lane?
A: Yes. Nevada along with 47 other states have the same law.
Q: Can I back into a diagonal parking spot?
A: No. You must front into the parking space.
Q: How loud is too loud if I play music in my vehicle?
A: The sound is considered too loud if it can be heard more than 75 feet from the vehicle.
Q: If there are no vehicles coming in any direction, do I have to come to a complete stop at a Stop Sign?
A: Yes. Though it may seem as though there are no cars approaching or pedestrians crossing, a slight error in judgement and an accident can happen very quickly.
Q: When will the Boulder City Police Department host another Citizens Academy?
A: A Citizens Academy is being organized by members of the police department and we anticipate it will be hosted very soon. Check back for updates.
