Understanding Motorcycle accident laws in Henderson, NV
Motorcyclists in Nevada have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of passenger vehicles. However, there are some conditions intended to help reduce the number of motorcycle accidents in Nevada. To start with, motorcyclists are required to have a class M license before they start operating a motorcycle. Motorcycle operators are also required to wear helmets. If the motorcycle doesn’t have a windshield or screen, the cyclist is required to provide goggles or a protective shield to their passenger. Motorcycle operators may not pass or ride next to another vehicle in the same travel lane.
Nevada laws also require motorcycles to have at least one headlight, taillights that are visible for at least 500 feet, rear reflector, front and rear electric turn signals and left and right rearview mirrors.
