Regular viewers are aware that Real World Police published a series of videos showing Nevada Highway Patrol’s fastest-speed speeding tickets of 2019. A subset of those regular viewers might have noticed, however, that our top-ten list was incomplete. Today we fill in a gap, with the 127 MPH citation of Alan Rosania, who tried to get out of his ticket by citing “CES” — Las Vegas’s annual Consumer Electronics Show.
It didn’t work.
And unlike almost every other high-speed speeding ticket we have seen in Nevada, Rosania’s citation — ninth place on the leaderboard — was not amended to a parking ticket. His wife just paid the fine and they moved on.
The ten fastest speeding tickets issued by Nevada Highway Patrol in 2019 were:
#1 – 155 MPH, to Aaron Snyder and his Charger
#2 – 142 MPH, to Michael Alexander and his Corvette
#3 – 134 MPH, to the off-duty cop from LA
#4 – 133 MPH, to the hairdresser on his way to Salt Lake
#5 – 132 MPH, to the guy from Jamaica who just got married
#6 – 129 MPH, to Mohammed Basiouny, visiting from the UAE
#7 – 129 MPH, someone you haven’t met because there is too much wind noise in the video
#8 – 127 MPH, to Justin Cole Jance
#9 – 127 MPH, to Mr. Rosania
#10 – 127 MPH, upcoming
They are all pretty great, but if you haven’t already seen the first place citation, it’s a particularly fun watch. Aaron Snyder was stopped driving 155 MPH while wearing a tee-shirt emblazoned with the word “THRILLS,” and the trooper spends much of the stop kind of amazed that Snyder stopped, even telling Snyder that there’s no way he would have caught him.
On October 1, 2019, Nevada Assembly Bill 434 went into effect, reforming – a bit – the state’s approach to traffic violations. The new law states that for someone arrested for a violation of Nevada’s traffic laws, “…there is a presumption that the person should be released on his or her own recognizance.” This presumption doesn’t apply to arrests for reckless driving, vehicular manslaughter, DUI; or if the person willfully refuses to pay court-imposed obligations and refuses to perform community service to satisfy a court-imposed obligation; or if the court finds that releasing the person “…would substantially jeopardize public safety.”
