Drivers More Susceptible to Traffic Tickets When Driving Out of Town - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
Many drivers who come to Ticketkick.com for help with their traffic tickets often received tickets outside of their home state. It is often speculated that drivers are more likely to be ticketed when going out of town. Some believe this is due to officers being more likely to target a vehicle with out of state plates. Others believe it is simply driver’s being unaware of speed limits or other traffic laws when driving in unfamiliar territory.
It’s true that you might just be more likely to receive a ticket when driving out of town, according to a 2007 study (“Political Economy at Any Speed: What Determines Traffic Citations?” by Michael Makowsky and Thomas Stratmann):
“Computing differences in the likelihood of fines and the amount of fines reveals that when stopped by a police officer, an out of town drivers has a 51 percent likelihood of receiving a fine as opposed to a warning while a local driver has a 30 percent chance of receiving a fine.” - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
