Rules of the Road

Speed laws:

Nevada has a basic rule for driving at a reasonable or proper speed. This means that in addition to any posted speed limits, you must consider:

  • The amount and type of traffic
  • The weather and the distance you can see
  • The condition of the road surface, whether it is dry, wet, icy or snow covered

It also means that you are never to drive at a speed that endangers you or anyone else. It is important to reduce the speed of your vehicle whenever weather conditions reduce visibility or make the roadway slippery.

Speed limits in Nevada:

  • 15 mph                 School Zones
  • 25 mph                 Business and residential areas and school zones
  •  35-45 mph           Reduced speed areas going into town
  • 55-65 mph           Urban freeways, rural highways
  • 70 mph                 Rural interstate freeways

Not all vehicles have the same speed limit. On some highways and in mountainous areas, trucks will have a slower speed limit.

Nevada does not have a minimum speed law; however, if you are driving under the speed limit and you have 3 or more vehicles behind you, you must pull over when it is safe and allow them to pass.
