Why are construction vehicles, commercial traffic and golfers excluded from fines?
When a homeowners purchases within an HOA they are contractually obligated to conform to the governing documents (the ByLaws and the CC&RS and the Rules published under the CC&Rs). The HOA does not have the authority to fine construction vehicles and golfers; Violators will be identified and the HOA will work with the declarant to address speed on the part of these invitees. Please note, however, that residential vehicles comprise more than 80% of all traffic.
What method of traffic control does the HOA use on private roads?
We did consider the controversial suggestion of installing speed bumps; however the the City of Henderson does not allows them. See Traffic Calming Policy for Public and Private Roadways within the City of Henderson 2013. This policy is an expansion of the current policy and includes the possible use of vertical deflections in the roadway; Vertical deflections include speed humps, speed cushions, speed tables (raised intersections), raised crosswalks, and raised pavers/rumble strips. NOTE: raised pavers/rumble strips are approved for use on privately maintained roadways only. Speed bumps and road spikes (aka tiger teeth) are prohibited on all roadways.

What is NV statutory basis for permitting HOA to establish policies for creating rules and regulations?
What is the basis for not permitting residents to park overnight (without a pass) on the street?
This covenant allows for parking on the for guests and vendors during daylight and business hours for a short period of time. The prohibition of parking between 2 am and 6 am means that there is no 24/hr permission to park on the streets. Such parking would diminish the aesthetic appearance of the community as well as cause safety issues including reduced visibility for garage ingress and egress.
