Latest Techniques Used by Police to Catch Texting Drivers

Monday, Oct 27th, 2014

Latest Techniques Used by Police to Catch Texting Drivers- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

In CA it’s illegal to text and drive. But most drivers still do it.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that at any given daytime moment, over 600,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving.

So cops are getting creative and coming up with new ways to catch you texting behind the wheel.

Here are 6 of the latest techniques being used by police, according to Insurance.com.

  1. The panhandler on the corner

The next time a panhandler approaches your car, you had better put your phone down, at least if you live in Canada.

  1. The trucker in the next lane

Elevated SUVs and even 18-wheelers give officers a bird's-eye view of a driver's hands.

  1. The spotter on the overpass

Visibility is key to catching drivers in the act of texting, and an overpass is the perfect vantage point.

  1. Your own cellphone records

This is not a commonly used tactic unless you have been involved in a car accident. If the police believe texting led to an accident they will gladly pursue your phone records.

  1. You, staring at your own lap

Drivers busy with their phones tend to be obvious. They drive slowly, hesitate at lights and are prone to weaving. Display any of these behaviors and there is a good chance you will be pulled over.

  1. And now, the texting detector

The police soon may have a new tool in their arsenal when it comes to detecting drivers who can't put their phones down.

You Might be Driving Distracted Even if Using Hands Free- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Siri and other hands-free, voice-activation systems, may cause unwanted distraction for drivers.

Voice-activated smartphones and dashboard infotainment systems, let drivers do things like send a text message, while keeping their eyes on the road, and their hands on the wheel, but many of these systems require more concentration from drivers rather than less, according to studies released Tuesday by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and the University of Utah. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

Got a Red Light Camera Ticket you Want Dismissed? Check the Yellow

Monday, Oct 13th, 2014

Got a Red Light Camera Ticket you Want Dismissed? Check the Yellow- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The length of a yellow light (aka “amber”), can affect how many drivers are caught by red light cameras.

If the yellow light is not legally long enough, it can also affect how many drivers get their tickets dismissed.

City hearing officers in Chicago for example, are increasingly tossing tickets because the yellow light time stamped on the citation is less than the minimum required by the city, the Tribune analysis showed.

If you do receive a ticket give us a call. We can help you determine if the yellow light time on your ticket meets California’s legal requirements of the minimum length of a yellow light. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
