Phone in Hand and Ticket in the Other Campaign Kicks Off Next Month

Tuesday, Jan 29th, 2013

Phone in Hand and Ticket in the Other Campaign Kicks Off Next Month - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

As reported by the California Office of Traffic Safety, the office has teamed up with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the California Highway Patrol, and 37 law enforcement agencies across the greater Sacramento region to eliminate motorists’ hand-held cell phone use and texting. 

California has been selected to receive federal support for the “Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other” project. The Office of Traffic Safety was awarded $600,000 in federal funds for these special high visibility law enforcement operations. The California program will be conducted in the Sacramento valley region comprising eight counties and 3.8 million residents.

Distracted drivers talking on a hand-held cell phone or texting will receive a first-time ticket costing a minimum of $159, with a second offense costing $279.  But the goal of the special enforcement operation is not to issue tickets, but to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving.

Drivers be warned, the next wave of enforcement will occur in February-March and June, 2013.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

California Traffic Violator Penalties Not Harsh Compared to China

Tuesday, Jan 22nd, 2013

California Traffic Violator Penalties Not Harsh Compared to China Traffic Rules Said to be Harshest Ever - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Most traffic tickets are designated as one-point violations that will add one point to your driving record and fall off after three years. China’s newly enacted “harshest ever” traffic laws have sparked debate among Chinese drivers who now face double the amount of penalty points compared to last year for ignoring a traffic light. Equally harsh is China’s newly enacted traffic violation which requires drivers to stop for a yellow light even if the light has not turned red yet. Compare to California which assigns only one negligent operator point for a red light violation. Additionally California has no requirement to stop for a yellow light; rather the purpose of the yellow light is only to warn that a red light is approaching. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Many Bills Passed But None to Raise California Traffic Ticket Fines

Tuesday, Jan 15th, 2013

Many Bills Passed But None to Raise California Traffic Ticket Fines - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

California Legislature passed some 800 bills, most of which went into effect the first of the year. Among those bills were some new traffic laws. Most notable were the traffic laws relating to the allowance for voice activated texting and paperless proof of automobile insurance, new guidelines for red light camera operators, and relaxed restrictions on which types of drivers can attend traffic school (relief for commercial drivers).

No sign of any laws to increase traffic fines this year. A welcome change from 2011 when the state added $4 to the cost of already high traffic ticket fines. Residents of Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Bernardino County should however be on the lookout for additional registration fees, as new state law authorizes these counties to increase registration fees by $1 or $2 in order to fund vehicle theft programs. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Unlikely Story of Driver Getting a Ticket and a Gift From Police Officer

Tuesday, Jan 08th, 2013

Unlikely Story of Driver Getting a Ticket and a Gift From Police Officer - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

CBS DFW news reported a Texas Man received a little more than a traffic ticket for no registration this December. When the driver was pulled over for having expired registration the police officer learned it was because the man couldn’t afford to both renew his registration and feed his family. The officer didn’t give the man a complete break as he was still given a traffic ticket, but the officer did surprise the man with a $100 bill. With California Ticket Prices, $100 wouldn’t quite cut it as a traffic ticket for no current registration is over $200.00. But a traffic ticket for expired registration is also a fix-it-ticket in California, so if you are able to show proof of current registration to the court, you will be charged you only a nominal fee and the ticket will be dismissed.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
