NV Attorney General Aaron Ford
Getting his Covid-19 vaccine shot!

Attorney General Aaron Ford Receives COVID-19 Vaccine – Encourages Nevadans to get Vaccinated

Carson City – As a member of law enforcement and tier one vaccinations, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford received his COVID-19 vaccination yesterday. He has the following message for all Nevadans:

“Stopping a pandemic requires everyone’s help,” said AG Ford. “Vaccines work hand in hand with your immune system to help your body fight the COVID-19 virus if you’re exposed. Wearing masks and social distancing can also help reduce your risk. Yesterday, I was vaccinated as a member of law enforcement. The process is quick, easy, and free to all Nevadans. As part of a minority group even more vulnerable to this virus, this vaccine is all the more important. I’m encouraging all Nevadans to do their part by getting vaccinated. Help yourself and others, and stay strong Nevada.

Cell phones and driving is a deadly mix!

If You’re Behind the Wheel holding a phone against your ear, it’s Against the Law!

Use of any Handheld Electronic Device While Driving is Illegal in Nevada!!

Between January 15 and January 25, 2021, Nevada’s law enforcement agencies throughout the state will be Joining Forces and citing distracted drivers. Nevada law clearly states that any use of a handheld electronic device—cell phone, mp3 player, GPS device, etc. — while driving is illegal. Nevada’s ban on handheld devices while driving went into effect January 1, 2012, and still, law enforcement continues to spot and cite offenders every day. The Governors Highway Safety Association provides the following tips to help limit driving distractions and increase safety:

  • Turn it off. Turn your phone off or switch to silent mode before you get in the car.
  • Spread the word. Set up a special message to tell callers that you are driving and you’ll

    get back to them as soon as possible.

  • If you need to make a call, find a legal and safe place to pull over and park first
  • Use your passengers. Ask a passenger to make the call for you.
  • Prepare. Review maps and directions before you start to drive. If you need help when

    you are on the road, pull over to a safe location to review the directions again.

  • Focus on the task at hand. Refrain from smoking, eating, drinking, reading and any

    other activity that takes your mind and eyes off the road.

    Taking your eyes off the road for even one second can change your life or someone else’s life forever. The Nevada Highway Patrol urges you to be a safe, distraction-free driver.

    The Nevada Department of Public Safety’s- Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) provides funding for law enforcement agencies to participate in Joining Forces to reduce traffic deaths and injuries on Nevada roadways. Visit www.zerofatalitiesnv.com for more information.

Nevada Attorney General: “Stop spreading lies….”

Aaron Ford
Nevada AG

Attorney General Ford Issues Statement on Letter From Nye County Republican Chairman  

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford issued the following statement in response to a letter from Nye County Republican Chairman Chris Zimmerman:

“As we have learned last week, words may lead to actions, and both have consequences,” said AG Ford. “Those peddling conspiracy theories and lies must take personal responsibility for their words and the consequences of pushing these lies on a public looking for guidance. This includes the leader of a local political organization whose recent letter lends to the inflamed passions that likewise led to the insurrection we all just experienced.”  “Let’s be clear: If so-called “evidence” of widespread voter fraud was so clear and convincing, it would have been persuasive to any of the many, many courts that heard challenges to the election. Yet judges across the country rejected these claims for one reason: These claims are false. As we have seen, perpetuating these lies or standing quietly aside as others do so in your name has deadly consequences. I will not so quietly stand and, instead, expressly denounce these lies.” 

“Our nation is at a crossroads,” continued AG Ford. “Every elected official and community leader faces a choice. Will you accept the will of the people in this election, even if you were disappointed by the outcome, and channel your energy to unifying our country?  Or will you continue to baselessly lie and defame our democracy and your fellow Americans who risked their health to ensure every eligible citizen could exercise their right to vote in a pandemic?  

“Since its inception, our nation has endeavored to create a ‘more perfect union.’ I was raised as a true patriot, believing that America is the world’s best example of democracy, albeit one that requires consistent improvement. The hope and steadfast belief in our democracy has always been a guiding star. Even in the midst of the Civil War, as blood was spilled just miles away from our Nation’s capital by brother fighting brother, the construction of the Capitol Dome continued rising high into the skyline. Our country, including my ancestors, kept building the seat of our democracy because we believed in its inevitability. Now, over 100 years later, the flag of traitors flew in those hallowed halls, and blood was spilled on its doorsteps to stop one of our most sacred features — the peaceful transition of power.” 

“What is at stake is nothing short of allowing our children to be the first generation of Americans to grow up without steadfast confidence in America’s democracy and our Nation’s exceptionalism. Failure is unacceptable. That’s why I’ll continue the work toward re-affirming that our Country is, indeed, ‘one Nation, under God, Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.’”
