informed that it is a criminal misdemeanor in Nevada to place a business flyer upon the windshield of a vehicle! I'm told this consti- tutes an act of vandalism!
TInformed by whom ?
I think you're going to find out this is more of a local ordinance rather than a State law. Every Incorporated City, and each individual County can pass their own ordinances that limit, restrict, govern, or prohibit handbill placement within their corporate limits.
It's doubtful that it would be considered an act of vandalism, as placing a handbill generally doesn't create any damage to property constituting vandalism.
You would be well advised to contact either the City Manger, or the County Manager, depending on where you are located, to determine what the ordinance is concerning the placement of handbills.
