Who Runs Red Lights And Why?

Tuesday, Nov 19th, 2013

Who Runs Red Lights And Why? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

A red light violation occurs when a motorist deliberately enters an intersection after the signal light has turned red. Motorists who are already in an intersection when the signal changes to red (while waiting to turn for example) aren't red light running.

All types of people run red lights. The most common reason (47 percent) is just impatience. Red light runners are most likely to be younger, less likely to use seat belts, more likely to have poor driving records, and have a tendency to drive older, smaller vehicles. They are also three times as likely to have multiple speeding convictions (source lomalinda-ca.gov).

Currently the cost of a red light ticket in California can range from about $200 to $500. The least costly red light tickets are those issued to pedestrians while the most costly are those issued to drivers who were going straight through an intersection or turning against an arrow.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

Most Common Reason for Contact with the Police is Being a Driver in a Traffic Stop

Tuesday, Nov 12th, 2013

Statistics Show then Most Common Reason for Contact with the Police is Being a Driver in a Traffic Stop- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

According to Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) findings based on a Police-Public Contact Survey (survey that interviews U.S. residents about their contacts with police during the previous 12 months), showed the most common reason for contact with the police is being a driver in a traffic stop.

Being pulled over for the first time can be a stressful time and because it is most likely your first contact with a police officer it is helpful to know some unwritten rules about interacting with an officer during a traffic stop, to avoid having an already stressful event become any worse:

DO:

  1. turn off your engine and place your hands on the wheel where the officer can see them;
  2. remain in your vehicle;
  3. follow the officer’s lead and wait for instructions before speaking or reaching for anything.

DON’T:

  1. become argumentative;
  2. fumble around looking for your registration and insurance instead keep them all in an envelope in your glove compartment;
  3. tell the officer you plan to contest his or her decision to write you a ticket. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

Can a Driver Ever Cross a Double Yellow Line Without Being Ticketed

Tuesday, Nov 05th, 2013

Can a Driver Ever Cross a Double Yellow Line Without Being Ticketed - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Section 21460 of the California Vehicle Code makes it an infraction to drive to the left of a double yellow line. If a police officer observes you crossing over a double yellow line illegally and tickets you, the penalties include a fine and a point added to your DMV record if convicted.

To avoid being ticketed you should only cross a double yellow line if doing so falls under one of the several exceptions provided under the law. You can generally cross double yellow lines when: (1) making a lawful u-turn (watch out for business districts where u-turns are generally not allowed), (2) passing a vehicle if one of the double yellow lines is broken and the broken line is closest to you, (3) turning left at an intersection, (4) making a left turn into a driveway, (5) making a left turn out of a driveway, (6) making a left turn into a private road, (7) making a left turn out of a private road, (8) entering a two way left turn lane (double parallel lines on either side of the lane with the inner lines broken and the outer line solid). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
