Hand Held Cell Phone Use Higher Among Female Drivers

Tuesday, Apr 30th, 2013

Hand Held Cell Phone Use Higher Among Female Drivers - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS) provides nationwide probability-based observed data on driver electronic device use in the United States. The NOPUS is conducted annually by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2011 NOPUS found more female drivers than male drivers drove while using a cell phone without a hands free device.

Most local police departments and the CHP have been participating in a statewide crackdown during the national distracted driving awareness month of April. Last year approximately 57,000 tickets were issued. If you get a cell phone ticket it is a reportable offense.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Survey Says Spouses Lie to Each Other About Getting Traffic Tickets

Tuesday, Apr 23rd, 2013

Survey Says Spouses Lie to Each Other About Getting Traffic Tickets - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

When you get a traffic ticket many thoughts race through your head: “how am I going to pay this”; “how is this going to affect my license”; “will my insurance company find out”. Maybe more distressing is “what will my wife/husband say”.

Recent survey by insure.com surveyed 1,000 married adults on this topic. Half of the 1,000 married adults surveyed were women and half men. The survey revealed 25 percent of all surveyed kept a traffic ticket secret from their spouse. Of those who kept a traffic ticket secret, more husbands than wives kept their ticket a secret! - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Driver of Borrowed Vehicle is Requested by Law Enforcement to Provide Evidence of Vehicle Insurance

Tuesday, Apr 09th, 2013

When a Driver of a Borrowed Vehicle is Requested by Law Enforcement to Provide Evidence of Vehicle Insurance - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Financial responsibility is required on any vehicle operated or parked on California roadways and it must be provided when demanded by a law enforcement officer. When a driver of a borrowed or loaned vehicle is requested by law enforcement to provide evidence of vehicle insurance does the driver present their own insurance or the insurance of the owner of the vehicle?

According to Allstate.com, auto insurance is designed to follow the car, which means that the coverage you purchased for your vehicle will generally cover the car regardless of who’s driving it. That said, in order to be fully covered by your insurance policy, the person driving your car must have permission (verbal or written) to do so. If they get into an accident while driving your car (and considering they had your permission to drive the car at the time of the accident), your auto insurance will be considered the primary coverage in any accident-related claim that’s made. The driver’s auto insurance coverage will be considered a secondary coverage, and will only activate if damage claims exceed the limits of your policy.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Using a GPS While Driving Allowed

Tuesday, Apr 02nd, 2013

Using a GPS While Driving Allowed- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Is using a GPS while driving allowed? Technically Yes!

As reported by pressdemocrat.com, CHP Officer Jon Sloat (spokes person for the Sonoma County Office) says yes, it is legal, because the law regarding cell phone use only specifies holding it to talk or to text.

Officer Jon Sloat also cautions that “It’s not safe, but it’s not illegal,” “If you can’t drive safely while using a GPS, you’re weaving or all over the road, then your safe speed is zero.” - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
