TicketKick Reminds Drivers to Drive Cautiously in Work Zones Where Fines Are Much Higher

Tuesday, Apr 29th, 2014

TicketKick Reminds Drivers to Drive Cautiously in Work Zones Where Fines Are Much Higher- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Did you know that fines for traffic offenses committed in a construction or maintenance areas can be doubled (for misdemeanor violations) or nearly doubled (for infraction violations)?

California law also requires drivers to move over or slow down when a parked emergency or Caltrans vehicle is flashing emergency or warning lights. Change lanes safely or, if unsafe or impracticable, slow to a speed that is safe for existing conditions.

“Work zones on our state’s highways can be complex, especially in urban areas. There are often bright lights, workers near the traffic lanes, and slow-moving or parked vehicles. Awareness and planning are keys to safe driving,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “We would like to encourage motorists to slow down and drive cautiously in work zones.” - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

What Percent of Drivers Who Activate a Red Light Camera Get Ticketed

Tuesday, Apr 01st, 2014

What Percent of Drivers Who Activate a Red Light Camera Get Ticketed- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Not all red light camera activations result in a ticket. March 18, 2014 Santa Ana Staff Report (on the topic of whether to allow the Red Light Camera contract expire in June 2015) reveals only about 50% of drivers who activate a red light camera when going through an intersection actually receive a ticket. Many violations get rejected in the initial review phase due to:

  • Vehicles having paper temporary plates
  • Motorcyclists wearing full face helmets
  • Drivers having more than ¾ of their face blocked (example a sun visor)
  • Violations occurring during a time when police officers are directing traffic (example an accident scene)
  • Violations occurring during inclement weather

Violations passing the initial review phase may still later be rejected when being reviewed by a police officer for reasons such as: unclear picture, unclear plate number, gender mismatch, safe turn on red, funeral procession, sun glare causing unclear scene image. So remember, just because you see the light flash when you pass through an intersection it doesn’t mean you will necessarily receive a ticket in the mail.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
