No lower fines for California stops and rolling rights

No lower fines for California stops and rolling rights. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Lawmakers’ effort to reduce the fine for “rolling stops” where drivers don't fully stop at a red light before turning right, has failed.

The bill that would have reduced the base fine for not fully stopping before turning right on red to $35 from $100, has been stopped in its tracks.

The bill had broad support from the California Assn. of Highway Patrolmen but likely failed due to an analysis that predicted if it were to pass there could be a significant loss of state and local revenue. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Why don't teens like to wear a seatbelt?

Why don’t teens like to wear a seatbelt? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

 In California, teens can’t ride passenger unless properly restrained by a safety belt. Fines for violating seatbelt laws vary depending on certain factors, but on average can cost $100 - $200.

Despite there being laws like this, teens have the lowest rate of seatbelt use as compared with other age groups. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports only 54 percent of high school students admitted to always wearing a seatbelt when riding with someone else.

Safety advocates encourage parents to warn teens of the dangers of being in a car without a seatbelt. -  this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Is motorcycle lane splitting legal and is it safe?

Is motorcycle lane splitting legal and is it safe? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Lane splitting is the practice of a motorcycle driving between two rows of stopped or moving cars in the same lane. No law in CA specifically authorizes lane splitting and none prohibits it.

According to research done by UC Berkeley in 2015, it can be done safely if the motorcycle is driven at a speed of no more than 50 mph and not more than 15 mph faster than surrounding traffic.

Although there are currently no official safety guidelines in place, a new bill seeks to authorize the California Highway Patrol to develop these. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Traffic Tickets: Why it matters what kind of car you drive. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Everybody gets tickets. And many who get speeding tickets can’t escape the feeling that they were targeted because of the car they were driving.

Curious if there really is any connection between the car you drive and whether you will get pulled over? Well, a study by Quality Planning, a company that provides services to auto insurers, seems to imply there is.

Topping the charts with the most moving violations was the Mercedes Benz SL-Class and Toyota Camry Solara. Next was the Hummer, Scion Hatchback, and Acura Integra. And finally the Volkswagen GTI. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Thousands of drivers get tickets for distracted driving: Here’s how to not get one yourself. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

During this year’s National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the California Highway Patrol reportedly issued over 13,000 tickets for distracted driving!

How can you avoid becoming just another ticketed driver?

Texting while driving gets the most attention from police but there are other distracting activities you need to avoid to avoid getting pulled over.

Eating and drinking, putting on make-up, reading a GPS or adjusting the radio are all distractions which can contribute to a driver making unsafe lane changes, swerving in the lane, following too close or driving at an unsafe speed. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

The woes of summer driving

The woes of summer driving.- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Summertime means sunshine, beaches, and BBQ…but also presents a new set of challenges on the road.

With school out, more young and inexperienced drivers will be on the road. And traveling will bring drivers unfamiliar with an area who may be distracted looking for landmarks and exits. Not to mention high temperatures may create problems for tires and engines.

‘Beat the heat’ of summer driving by being an alert driver, keeping your vehicle well maintained, and having passengers navigate the GPS and radio for you. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Avoid the insurance hike for forgetting to signal

Avoid the insurance hike for forgetting to signal. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Failure to signal for a turn can increase your insurance rate by about 20% on average, according to InsuranceQuotes.com.

So when are you supposed to signal anyway?

According to California traffic law, if any other vehicle could be affected by the movement of your car you have to signal, and turn it on at least 100 feet before the turn.

If it’s a really sunny day, the DMV recommends also using hands signals since bright sunlight can make the signal lights hard to spot. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.
