Avoid Collisions (And Traffic Tickets) By Keeping Your Distance

Tuesday, Jun 24th, 2014

Avoid Collisions (And Traffic Tickets) By Keeping Your Distance- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Did you know that most collisions occur when drivers do not maintain enough space when traveling behind other vehicles?

As a general rule of thumb, you should follow the good ole’ three second rule that we learned in Drivers’ Ed, which is also suggested by the DMV.

When the vehicle ahead of you passes a certain point such as a sign, count “one-thousand-one, one-thousand-two, and so on.

If you pass the same point before you finish counting…you’re probably too close. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

The Need for Speed (Limit Signs)

Tuesday, Jun 17th, 2014

The Need for Speed (Limit Signs) - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

One of the most common reasons drivers use when they are caught speeding by officers is that they never saw a speed limit sign (especially in rural areas).

But the question is: when is this excuse actually valid?

Harsh as it may seem, sometimes no speed limit sign needs to be posted; you are just expected to “know.”  Like, you will never see a “100 mph” sign, but you can never exceed 100 mph.

On the other hand, a 2 lane highway, with a 55 mph speed limit, IS supposed to have signage; a “reasonable” amount (according to the Vehicle Code) and posted every 5 to 10 miles (according to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices).- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Parking 101: Illegal to Park in These Places - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Nobody wants their windshield decorated with the dreaded PARKING VIOLATION.

With so many annoying parking rules (some requiring a tape measure), we figured a refresher course was in order.

Here are the most common places you’re NOT supposed to park:

  • on a sidewalk or crosswalk
  • blocking a driveway
  • at a red curb
  • on a freeway (with few exceptions)
  • less than 15 feet of a hydrant
  • less than 7 ½ feet from a railroad track
  • more than 18 inches from curb

Traffic Fines Doubled in School Zones?

Tuesday, Jun 03rd, 2014

Traffic Fines Doubled in School Zones? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Drivers are subject to double traffic fines in constructions zones, and the same could apply to school zones.

Existing traffic laws applies a reduced school zone speed limit while children are entering or exiting during school hours or noon recess period. If it passes, Senator Cannella’s bill, introduced earlier this year, would effectively double the base fine of a ticket received in a school zone.

The increased school zone fine would go a step further than the current law.

If the bill passes, the increased traffic fine would also be triggered during a time when a “school-sponsored activity” is going on. Potentially problematic for passing drivers who may be unaware a school function is in progress if outside of normal school hours. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
