Red light camera report reveals clear financial benefits and unclear safety benefits

Thursday, Jan 28th, 2016

Red light camera report reveals clear financial benefits and unclear safety benefits. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

This may not come as a surprise, but the safety benefits of red light cameras are still being questioned.

According to The Newspaper.com, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency annual report on automated ticketing reveals that while the red light cameras have obvious financial benefits, the safety benefits are unclear. Millions of dollars worth of camera tickets were issued, less than 10 percent of which were actually contested.

It’s no wonder then that State Senator Jerry Hill’s new measure seeks to cut the base fine amount for rolling stops in half. The “right on red” violations are currently in the same ticket category as speeding for example, even though National Highway Traffic Safety Administration studies have reportedly found that less than .04 percent of crashes nationwide involve “right on red” turns. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Police policy to issue more warnings instead of tickets aims to free up court resources

Wednesday, Jan 20th, 2016

Police policy to issue more warnings instead of tickets aims to free up court resources. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

This police department is starting the New Year off with a policy change that allows officers to write warnings instead of tickets for minor driving offenses.

Sorry folks in not anywhere in California (at least not yet).

But if you happen to be road tripping through Chesterfield County, Virginia, you might catch a break if you forget to signal or have a broken tail light. The program, which began January 1, is aimed at unclogging court dockets.

You might be thinking California could benefit from a similar program. This is especially true considering the courts were bombarded with over 4.5 mil. traffic tickets between 2013 and 2014, according the Judicial Council 2015 court statistics report. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

This driving age group has a better overall safety record compared to others

Monday, Jan 11th, 2016

This driving age group has a better overall safety record compared to others. This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Did you know almost 15 percent of the licensed drivers in California are 65 or older?

According to the CHP, although drivers age 65 and older may have a better overall safety record than other age groups, they often face unique challenges.

During the holiday season, family gatherings are a good chance to discuss with your older drivers how they can stay safe behind the wheel, suggests CHP Commissioner Farrow.

To provide senior drivers with tools to evaluate and improve their driving skills the CHP developed the Age Well, Drive Smart program which is offered at no charge at local CHP offices. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

The risk of driving without a license: CHP Cracks down on unlicensed drivers

Monday, Jan 04th, 2016

The risk of driving without a license: CHP Cracks down on unlicensed drivers - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Under the “The Safe and Responsible Driver Act,” which took effect earlier this year, any eligible California resident is able to apply for a driver’s license, regardless of immigration status.

So, now every driver in California must have a valid driver’s license or a learner’s permit. And police are cracking down on this too. Recently the CHP was featured on the news stopping, citing, and towing several vehicles belonging to unlicensed Bay Area drivers.

So remember, if you drive without a license a simple speeding or red light ticket could have costly consequences like vehicle impoundment or arrest. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets
