Buckle up: Police will soon be cracking down on seatbelt violators

Buckle up: Police will soon be cracking down on seatbelt violators - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

From May 23rd through June 5th, police will be stepping up enforcement to crack down on motorists not wearing their seat belts.

In California you can be pulled over just for forgetting to buckle up even if you’re not doing anything else wrong. 

Don’t forget, properly buckled means wearing both the lap and shoulder portion of your seatbelt (no tucking behind the back). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Is it ever ok to drive solo in a carpool lane?

Is it ever ok to drive solo in a carpool lane? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Is there ever a time to drive solo in a carpool lane? Not usually, but the California Highway Patrol website lists a few exceptions to the general rule:

-Part-time carpool lanes (common in NorCal) allow solo drivers outside of the designated HOV hours.

-You can use Express Lanes (like FasTrak) without a passenger for a toll fee.

-Drivers of vehicles with special Clean Air Decals don’t need a passenger (unless locally prohibited).

-Solo motorcyclists can use carpool lane unless otherwise posted, but can’t ride on or over solid double lines.

In addition to the above guidelines, drivers should be aware that regardless of the number of passengers, any vehicle towing a trailer can’t be in a carpool lane. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

National Bike Safety Month: What drivers and bicyclists should know. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

May is National Bike Safety Month and the California Highway Patrol is reminding motorists and bicyclists to share responsibility for road safety.

Drivers should be reminded that they are required to give three feet of clearance when passing a bicycle on the road.

Bicyclists must also obey the laws of the road, such as stopping at stop signs, and riders can increase their safety by wearing reflective clothing, a helmet, and riding with the flow of traffic. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Tips for avoiding cell phone tickets

Tips for avoiding cell phone tickets. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Distracted Driver Awareness Month may be coming to an end but police will continue to ticket if it looks like you are on your phone.

From outside your car an officer can easily mistake a lawful activity changing a song or dialing a number on your phone, for texting.

Avoid getting stopped in the first place by pulling over if you need to use your phone, asking a passenger to dial for you, or reviewing maps and directions before you start to drive. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Got pulled over? Now what

Got pulled over? Now what. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

What you do or say during a traffic stop could make or break you. 

If you’re just being difficult, you can bet the officer will be too if you try and fight the ticket that you’re sure to get. But hey, if you’re nice you might get off with just a warning.

When you get pulled over try to eliminate anything that might come off as a potential safety threat. Keep your hands on the wheel and avoid quick reaching movements.  And if you’re worried about saying the wrong thing, just remember your right to remain silent. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Do bicyclists have to obey speed limits?

Do bicyclists have to obey speed limits? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Fines and speeding tickets for mountain bikers could soon be real, according to gearjunkie. The speed limit enforcement, which began earlier this month is taking place within northern California’s parklands, where trails are shared by bikers, hikers, and pedestrians.

Marin County, is now enforcing 15 mph speed limits on trails using speed guns and other tactics to slow riders down, according to gearjunkie.

While the enforcement aspect may seem new, the law itself isn’t. State law requires bicyclists to obey traffic laws like red lights, stop signs, and even the speed limit. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

How tens of thousands of drivers got their traffic tickets reduced - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Tens of thousands of California drivers have had their traffic fines reduced, according to a report by state authorities.

This was made possible by Gov. Jerry Brown’s amnesty program, implemented to help the poor.  In just the first three months of the program, more than 58,000 drivers benefited according to the Judicial Council of California. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Sleepy driving is impaired driving

Sleepy driving is impaired driving. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

For many, the switch to Daylight Saving Time, on March 13, means losing an hour of sleep.

If you have a hard time adjusting to the time change this could affect your driving.

According to research by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), the effect of not getting enough sleep (awake over 18 hours) is similar to having a blood alcohol content of .05 percent.

The NSF recommends that drivers get seven to nine hours of sleep a night.  - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

As bad as texting? How to avoid this driving distraction

As bad as texting? How to avoid this driving distraction. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Next month in April police will be ramping up enforcement for “Distracted Driving Awareness Month.”

Distracted driving can occur without you even realizing it.

Police data, analyzed by Erie Insurance, revealed that a fatal crash is about five times more likely to be caused by a daydreaming driver than a driver using a phone. You can minimize daydream driving by:

  1. Keeping your eyes moving;
  2. Chewing on something;
  3. Taking different routes then you’re used to.

The California Rolling Stop: Most drivers don't even realize they are doing it

The California Rolling Stop: Most drivers don’t even realize they are doing it. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Did you really stop at that stop sign? Many people roll through stop signs on auto pilot without even realizing it especially along routes they take all the time.

According to Manteca Bulletin.com, Police Chief Nick Obligacion guesses that at least 50 percent of the time most motorists don’t come close to stopping in the manner California law requires.

Remember the rules:

  1. If there’s a limit line stop the entire vehicle behind the line.
  2. If there’s a crosswalk stop behind the crosswalk.
  3. Yield in lieu of stopping only when there’s actually a yield sign in place of a stop sign.
