Las Vegas, Nevada Crash & DWI information.
The prosecution of a DWI case involves the examination of the totality of the circumstances surrounding the incident: operation of the motor vehicle, all visual observations of the defendant made by the police or civilian witnesses, statements made by the defendant, his2 performance of psychomotor tests (standardized field sobriety tests) and the result of any chemical test (i.e. breath, blood, or urine).

Alcohol-related crashes are completely avoidable. Your use of these powerful visual terms will help and will reemphasize that his actions were criminal
