Are Ride-Hailing Service Drivers Required to Register for Special Plates?

Tuesday, Jan 27th, 2015

Are Ride-Hailing Service Drivers Required to Register for Special Plates?- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Earlier this month the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) issued a statement hinting that Uber, Lyft, and other ride-hailing service drivers who use their personal cars for profit, should be required to get commercial license plates.

However, after a flood of media coverage sparking debate, the DMV has taken a step back.

In its recent press release, the DMV stated, “In the coming days, the DMV will be meeting with regulators and industry to continue working through this issue. Pending this further review, Vehicle Industry News alert VIN 2015-1, which affected ride share operators, is hereby revoked including any reference to the requirement of a commercial plate.” - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Driving While Snacking: What will they think of ticketing next

Wednesday, Jan 21st, 2015

Driving While Snacking: What will they think of ticketing next - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

A man says enjoying a double quarter-pounder with cheese as he cruised down a highway outside Atlanta got him in trouble with the law - and a ticket for eating while driving, reported cbs news.

Is that sort of thing ticket-able in California?

Similar to Georgia, the state of California has rules on distracted driving. And much like Georgia’s law, California’s doesn’t single out food.

That said, the CHP has been known to ticket for just about anything that takes your eyes off the wheel, especially during the month of April – Distracted Driver Awareness Month. In a prior press release, the CHP said, “Focus on driving, and avoid eating, drinking, reading, grooming, smoking, and any other activity that takes your mind and eyes off the road.”

We’ve even seen this sort of thing written up as an unsafe speed charge – a bit of a stretch if you ask us (and probably why we’ve seen many of these tickets dismissed). The process used by TicketKick can help you with an undeserved ticket; call us or visit us on the web.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

The Real Cost of Missing that Posted Sign

Wednesday, Jan 14th, 2015

The Real Cost of Missing that Posted Sign - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

It's no wonder you found yourself accidentally disobeying a posted sign. If they're not blocked by trees they're obscured by posters for lost cats.

How bad could it be for missing that sign?

Besides a negative point on your driver record you’re looking at hefty fine, after all the state and county assessments are tacked on to the base fine.

Just like the OC register recently reported, a seemingly cheap ticket is more like a few hundred dollars when all is said and done.

And now you’re thinking, how is that fair? After all, the only warning you had for that sign was hidden behind a tree.

That's where TicketKick comes in.

What is a Speed Contest and Why it's Risky to Even Watch

Tuesday, Jan 06th, 2015

What is a Speed Contest and Why it’s Risky to Even Watch - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.


Just last month, police in Los Angeles had to break up an early-morning, "Fast and Furious"-style highway takeover, reported nbc news.

What is a Speed Contest?
Speed contests or exhibitions of speed, commonly known as "street race," "speed race," or "drag race,” are illegal.

And if you just watch…
Even a spectator, who engages, aids, or participates at a speed contest, could be cited.

Bottom Line

Its risky behavior and the penalties are harsh:
•    Arrest or imprisonment
•    vehicle impoundment
•    fined up to $1,000.
•    driver license revocation
•    car insurance cancellations or huge premium increase.
