Tips to Avoid Cell Phone Tickets

Tuesday, Feb 26th, 2013

Tips to Avoid Cell Phone Tickets - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Although the hands –free laws specify exactly what activity is prohibited, from the outside of a vehicle it is very easy for an officer to mistake some other activity involving your phone (like changing a song or scrolling through a phone directory) for illegal cell phone use while driving (like texting). The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) provides some basic tips, which may help prevent you from doing an activity that the officer could mistake for distracted driving:

  1. Pull over. If you need to make a call, pull over to a safe area first.
  2. Use your passengers. Ask a passenger to make the call for you.
  3. Prepare. Review maps and directions before you start to drive. If you need help when you are on the road, ask a passenger to help or pull over to a safe location to review the map/directions again.
  4. Know the law. Familiarize yourself with state and local laws before you get in the car. Some states and localities prohibit the use of hand held cell phones. GHSA offers a handy chart of state laws on its website: www.ghsa.org/html/stateinfo/laws/cellphone_laws.html.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Should Post Office Drivers be Immune From Red Light Camera Tickets

Tuesday, Feb 19th, 2013

Should Post Office Drivers be Immune From Red Light Camera Tickets- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Sure the average citizen is held accountable for traffic tickets, including those issued by a red light camera, but what about tickets issued to the United States Post Office? As reported by Yahoo News, the attorney for the post office says the post office enjoys federal immunity from state and local regulations. The  post office is attempting to have millions of dollars in traffic tickets dropped, including those issued by  a red light camera. Attorney for American Traffic Solutions (ATS), the Arizona-based company that enforces East Cleveland’s camera citations, suggested the government transfer liability for the traffic infractions to the USPS drivers who incurred them. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

California Speeding Ticket Basics

Wednesday, Feb 13th, 2013

California Speeding Ticket Basics - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Watch for speed limit changes when crossing county lines and state lines. If you don’t see a speed limit sign on a freeway remember the general rule: 65 Miles – per – hour, unless posted higher to 70 miles – per – hour. Even if there are no signs posted you are never allowed to exceed 100 miles – per – hour!

Speed Violations can range from putting 1 point on your license to 2, and the cost can be $150 - $400 plus. 

When traveling through unfamiliar areas, lower speed when entering towns, business districts, residential areas, or commercial districts, the speed limit can sometimes drop to 25 mph to 35 mph in these areas.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Ticket Quotas Are Illegal Under State Law

Tuesday, Feb 05th, 2013

Ticket Quotas Are Illegal Under State Law - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

You get nabbed for speeding a block from your house and it’s the end of the month. Are you the victim of an officer just trying to fill his quota? Ticket quotas are illegal under state law, since they can pressure police to write unjust tickets to meet the goal, however it can be hard to prove the officer was just filling a quota if you really were breaking the law by driving over the speed limit or rolling that stop sign. 

Ticket quotas are illegal under state law and in 2011, the LA Times reported that ten Los Angeles motor officers sued the city alleging that their supervisors retaliated against them for resisting traffic-ticket quotas. Among their allegations is that LAPD supervisors punished them for refusing to follow orders to implement traffic ticket quotas. The officers testified they were ordered to scrap regular patrol assignments and sent instead to specific streets where they were more likely to catch motorists committing moving violations. Though not illegal, being sent to those so-called "orchards" or "cherry patches," they said, reinforced the belief that hitting ticket targets trumped other aspects of the job.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
