What is the Law in California for Driving With Music too Loud?

Monday, Sep 29th, 2014

What is the Law in California for Driving With Music too Loud?- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Next time you are driving along listening to your favorite song, think twice before cranking up the tunes when it gets to the good part.

Under California law, if your music can be heard from 50 feet away, it’s too loud… and you can get a ticket - carrying a fine in the $150 - $250 range.

Excuses that work: Under exceptions to the law, you can blast your stereo to request assistance or warn of a hazard. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Emerging Technology Would Help Police Easily Detect Texting Drivers

Tuesday, Sep 23rd, 2014

Emerging Technology Would Help Police Easily Detect Texting Drivers- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Police may soon have a new trick up their sleeve, making it easier to snag texting drivers.

A Virginia company is working on developing a device, to be used much like a radar gun, that would pick up radio signals sent out from a vehicle when a driver is sending a text, reports CBS.

Since California does not ban all texting while driving, such a device if used in California would have to differentiate between hands-free and non- hands free texting. Under current California, law, a driver can dictate and send a text via a voice-operated and hands-free system (e.g. Siri). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

What's that in the sky? Highway Patrol Planes Looking for Speeders in Construction Zones

Tuesday, Sep 16th, 2014

What’s that in the sky? Highway Patrol Planes Looking for Speeders in Construction Zones - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Whether you are cruising the highways in So Cal or Nor Cal, it’s inevitable. You will encounter a construction zone, and this translates to reduced speeds, and, of course, higher fines if you receive a ticket in the “cone zone.”

Most recently, the speed limit was lowered to 55 mph for those driving eastbound on Interstate 80 through Across the Top construction project in Natomas. 

What will CHP officers do to enforce certain construction zones? 

In addition to using motorcycle officers (who can easily weave through traffic to catch speeders), CHP Officer Hertzell, says they will be tracking speeds from the air with their plane or helicopter.

How serious are they?

“If we have to wait seven miles to get this person, then we are going wait seven miles — we have nowhere else to go,” said Hertzell.

You can clean up a Criminal Record, what about a Driving Record?

Tuesday, Sep 09th, 2014

You can clean up a Criminal Record, what about a Driving Record?- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

In California, an expungement process allows you to remove certain criminal convictions from your record, after one year has passed. Can you do this for tickets too?

The same program is not available for traffic ticket convictions, which unfortunately can affect employment opportunities for many.

Once a ticket is on your record, there is no way to remove it until a set amount of time has passed, after which point it will “fall off” (typically at least 3 years and up to 10 in some instances). All the more reason to contest a ticket, and, keep it from going on your record!

To easily and effectively contest your traffic ticket, visit Ticketkick.com. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Avoid Speeding Ticket Scams: Here's How

Wednesday, Sep 03rd, 2014

Avoid Speeding Ticket Scams: Here’s How- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

“Ticket-rigging” (alleged) was recently discovered by the Houston Police Department (and reported on by KHOU-TV).

Dubbed “Ticket-rigging,” it can be described as when an officer issues a speeding ticket to a driver, then names two officers as witnesses to the violation on the ticket, when really there’s only one. The extra officer, although not present at the time of your traffic stop, will get overtime to appear in court to say they witnessed the violation and testify against you.  

Here’s how to avoid getting scammed:

-        If your ticket indicates that a speed measuring gun (lidar) was used then it’s possible two-officers were involved (one stationary pointing the gun, the other driving to catch speeders);

-        If your ticket indicates that speed was  determined by “aircraft,” it’s normal for two officers to be named on your ticket (one following in a plane, the other following drivers on the ground);

-        If your speeding ticket indicates any other method, and you only noticed one officer during the traffic stop, then be wary, it could be a scam

This could happen anywhere, so be on the lookout, and, remember, if you do get a speeding ticket (or any other type of traffic ticket), Ticketkick can help you dismiss it. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
