What is the difference between Sheriff or Police and Highway Patrol?

Tuesday, Sep 24th, 2013

What is the difference between Sheriff or Police and Highway Patrol? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

What is the difference between a Sheriff's Deputy, Police Officer, and the Highway Patrol?

  • A Deputy Sheriff (like Ventura County Sheriff) works for the County Sheriff's Department.
  • A Police Officer (like Los Angeles Police Department) works for the City.
  • The California Highway Patrol provides law enforcement functions in state-operated facilities and provides traffic-related enforcement in various communities as well as on freeways.

All three are peace officers and are authorized under the California penal code with equal police powers anywhere in California.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Local and State Police Will be Checking Child Passenger Seats

Wednesday, Sep 18th, 2013

Local and State Police Will be Checking Child Passenger Seats- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

California’s child passenger safety seat law, which went into effect January 1, 2012, now requires children to ride in the back seat of a vehicle, in either a car seat or booster seat, until the age of eight, or until they are 4 feet 9 inches in height.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 73 percent of child restraints are not used properly; infant seats have the highest percentage of misuse followed by rear-facing convertible seats. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will observe National Child Passenger Safety Week from September 15-21 by conducting child safety seat events throughout the state.

While a seatbelt ticket for an adult driver or passenger does not add a point to a motor vehicle record, tickets for child seats do. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

When a Traffic Ticket is Issued to a Minor

Wednesday, Sep 11th, 2013

When a Traffic Ticket is Issued to a Minor - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

An adult can avoid going to court for most violations by simply mailing in the fine for the ticket, pleading not guilty in writing, or requesting a written trial by mail. However the process can be different for a minor.

If your child received traffic ticket while they were under the age of 18 you will likely have to make a trip to the courthouse with them in order for them to take care of their ticket.

Most courthouses require a minor’s parent or guardian appear in court with the minor to handle a traffic ticket. This prevents the minor from being able to keep their parent or guardian in the dark about the ticket.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Court Has Ruled Drivers May Be Liable For Texting Someone Who They Know Is Driving

Court Has Ruled Drivers May Be Liable For Texting Someone Who They Know Is Driving - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Reported by CNN.com, a New Jersey court has ruled drivers may be liable for texting someone who they know is driving:

We've all heard the dictum: Don't text and drive. Now a New Jersey state appeals court has an addendum: Don't knowingly text a driver -- or you could be held liable if he causes a crash.

On Tuesday, three appeals court judges agreed with it -- in principle. They ruled that if the sender of text messages knows that the recipient is driving and texting at the same time, a court may hold the sender responsible for distraction and hold him or her liable for the accident."We hold that the sender of a text message can potentially be liable if an accident is caused by texting, but only if the sender knew or had special reason to know that the recipient would view the text while driving and thus be distracted," the court said.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
