Totally hypothetical, just legally interesting debate my mother and I had the other night. I was turning out of a driveway with a right turn to same side, a large wagon/suv thing was blocking view to see anyone coming. So I hung back and watche...
In Nevada, the court's recognize the concept of contributory negligence. If you were hit by another driver that was speeding after you pulled out in front of them, there is a strong likelihood that some amount of fault would be attributed to both driver's. Only the driver that is less at fault than the other would be able to collect damages in a civil case. The "good news" is that if your mother is injured in the accident, as a passenger, she gets to collect from both at-fault driver's.
That being said, if you pull out in front of someone, regardless of fault, you will likely get a ticket. A traffic ticket case can determine fault both criminally and civilly if not handled properly.
My best advice is to not take chances, and that goes doubly so when your mother is in the car.See question

The short answer to your questions is maybe.
The reason nobody has answered your question is because the fact pattern you present resembles the type of fact pattern a law professor might present as a law school exam. There are quite a few questions that you need to answer before an anyone can give you an accurate response without taking a considerable amount of time trying to fill in all of the blanks.
You really need to sit down with a lawyer and discuss your situation in detail to get a proper answer to your question.See question
I received a ticket for not having my seat belt on and for not having proof of my driver's license about 5 years ago. Well now it's in collections.
The statute of limitations basically says the cops had twelve months to file your case with the court. Once the case is filed the statute of limitations no longer applies in Nevada. The fact that the case is in collections indicates that the case was filed. Remember, though, you are innocent until proven guilty. You still have a right to due process, including a trial.See question
Would it be better to have a lawyer reduce this to illegal parking or should I just pay the fine?
A cell phone violation is a moving violation in Nevada and it will be reported to the DMV and appear on your driving record if convicted. For a first time violation, the DMV does not assign any points, but your insurance company might still raise your auto insurance rates as a result. If your potential employer checks your driving record, then yes, they will see that.See question

You have the right to cut any portion of a tree that extends into your property. I think your first step would be to cut the branch so that it doesn't cause further damage to your house. Beyond that, you may want to contact a lawyer to discuss your options for a lawsuit.See question

HOAs are private property, so by entering the property you are implicitly agreeing to their rules. If you don't pay the fine they could sue you in small claims court. They may have a collection agency that might try to collect. The HOA may have a hard time collecting through a collection agency or small claims, but it would certainly be time consuming to fight either way.
If you go back to the property, they could have you arrested for trespassing.See question
