Going Green May Have You Going to The Courthouse More

Tuesday, Jul 30th, 2013

Going Green May Have You Going to The Courthouse More -- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Owners of hybrid vehicles tend to drive more… and get more tickets, as reported by thecarconnection.com.

A study (by Quality Planning) of the behavior of 360,000 motorists found insurers pay 17 percent more for comprehensive coverage of hybrid owners compared to owners of conventional models. Toyota Looking at moving violations, Quality Planning found Toyota Prius owners specifically committed 0.38 violations per 100,000 miles driven, compared to an average of 0.23. Considering hybrid owners also drive 25 percent farther for pleasure trips, the number of violations accrued is even higher relative to the record of drivers of gas-only - powered cars. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Warning or a Ticket? Where the Speeding Violation Occurs and the Road Conditions Are Big Factors

Tuesday, Jul 23rd, 2013

Warning or a Ticket? Where the Speeding Violation Occurs and the Road Conditions Are Big Factors this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The Post-Tribune (Chicago Sun-Times.com) analyzed a year’s worth of traffic tickets and warnings from the Lake County Sheriff’s Department and talked to several patrol officers and found out some answers:

Chances of getting a ticket over a warning are greater for School Zones and Constructions Zones. Chances are, an officer will be stricter in a school zone (especially if he has school-age child or has grandkids), in a construction zone, or if he feels the motorist was endangering the lives of other people. “Did it occur around a playground, did it occur around a school? Was it in a residential neighborhood on a nice summer night or spring day where there’s children all over the street? The conditions. It’s the officer’s call or discretion,” Lake County Sheriff John Buncich said.

Chances of getting a ticket over a warning are greater for known problem areas. On a more general level, issuing tickets is often a way to make drivers slow down in a dangerous area with many accidents or where residents have complained about speeders. “If I know we’re having problems in a certain area, if we had a couple of fatalities and have constant callers about speeders, I put the grant sheet up, we might want to run some grants in this area,” said Lake County patrol Officer Richard Graham.

Issuing a ticket versus a warning is completely up to a police officer’s discretion, but this provides some insight as to how officers decide. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Drivers More Susceptible to Traffic Tickets When Driving Out of Town

Tuesday, Jul 16th, 2013

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

Speeding Ticket on Federal Property

Tuesday, Jul 09th, 2013

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

Speeding on through a national park, military base, post office or federal building grounds will result in a more troublesome ticket than your average speeding ticket. A federal ticket will include the words “U.S. District Court Violation Notice”.

Your average California speeding ticket can generally be contested through a convenient and time-saving written trial, called a Trial by Written Declaration, in lieu of an in person trial, and any request for traffic school can generally be made in writing as well. Compare to a federal speeding ticket where there is no written trial option and requesting traffic school may also require making a burdensome appearance in court. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Officer Gets Surprise Nip When Handing Driver a Ticket

Officer Gets Surprise Nip When Handing Driver a Ticket- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Don’t bite the hand that feeds. Ahem, rather don’t bite the hand that gives you a traffic ticket.

A rookie officer in Aransas Pass, Texas, was surprised to learn that the man he was ticketing during a traffic stop had a pet monkey. The monkey jumped out and bit him as he handed over an electronic ticket for the driver to sign. The officer, 21-year-old Keith Moore, recoils and walks back to his patrol vehicle. He tells his sergeant, "His monkey attacked me!" The other officer laughs. "He's got a monkey and it attacked my hand. I'm not even kidding," Moore says. "A monkey? Like a legitimate monkey?" the sergeant asks, smiling. "Yeah like a legitimate monkey," Moore said. (story by Huffington Post)

Despite the monkey’s best effort to prevent it, his owner still received the ticket. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
