How to Find Your Courthouse After Losing a Ticket

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

How to Find Your Courthouse After Losing a Ticket - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

After losing a ticket, you may have also lost your only document with the name of the courthouse your ticket will be filed with.  You will not always receive a notice in the mail from your courthouse reminding you of your ticket due date and where to appear, so you will need to take action to avoid missing court deadlines.  

You can track down your courthouse by going to the California Court website http://www.courts.ca.gov/home.htm . From the home page click the “Courts” tab then click “Superior Courts”. The Superior Courts are the trial courts which handle traffic violations.  From the Superior Courts Menu select “Find my Court” and from there you will be able to scroll through every courthouse, or you can search by the city or county you were ticketed in. 

Many court websites also offer online services and you can check for any ticket in your name filed with the court by entering information such as your birth date or drivers license number.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Fighting your ticket without a Lawyer

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Fighting your ticket without a Lawyer - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

If you need legal advice then you should hire an Attorney or Lawyer, and if you were charged with a serious misdemeanor offense then you may need an Attorney or Lawyer, but the vast majority of traffic tickets like speeding, red light, cell phone, seatbelt, improper lane, and stop sign do not require an Attorney or Lawyer to be successfully dismissed (not to mention most drivers cannot the ticket let alone a lawyer to fight it). An Attorney or Lawyer can charge from $200 an hour to $2,500 for a court appearance and that is with no guarantee your ticket will be dismissed and no refund of your money either. No one can guarantee that your ticket will be dismissed since the court makes the ultimate decision so be wary of any Attorney or Lawyer that does make a guarantee. TicketKick.com is less costly avenue a driver can opt for and being exclusive with fighting traffic tickets using the California Trial by Written Declaration, TicketKick has the experience that most Attorneys or Lawyers don’t.   - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Survey Says Spouses Lie to Each Other About Getting Traffic Tickets

Tuesday, Apr 23rd, 2013

Survey Says Spouses Lie to Each Other About Getting Traffic Tickets - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

When you get a traffic ticket many thoughts race through your head: “how am I going to pay this”; “how is this going to affect my license”; “will my insurance company find out”. Maybe more distressing is “what will my wife/husband say”.

Recent survey by insure.com surveyed 1,000 married adults on this topic. Half of the 1,000 married adults surveyed were women and half men. The survey revealed 25 percent of all surveyed kept a traffic ticket secret from their spouse. Of those who kept a traffic ticket secret, more husbands than wives kept their ticket a secret! - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Driver of Borrowed Vehicle is Requested by Law Enforcement to Provide Evidence of Vehicle Insurance

Tuesday, Apr 09th, 2013

When a Driver of a Borrowed Vehicle is Requested by Law Enforcement to Provide Evidence of Vehicle Insurance - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Financial responsibility is required on any vehicle operated or parked on California roadways and it must be provided when demanded by a law enforcement officer. When a driver of a borrowed or loaned vehicle is requested by law enforcement to provide evidence of vehicle insurance does the driver present their own insurance or the insurance of the owner of the vehicle?

According to Allstate.com, auto insurance is designed to follow the car, which means that the coverage you purchased for your vehicle will generally cover the car regardless of who’s driving it. That said, in order to be fully covered by your insurance policy, the person driving your car must have permission (verbal or written) to do so. If they get into an accident while driving your car (and considering they had your permission to drive the car at the time of the accident), your auto insurance will be considered the primary coverage in any accident-related claim that’s made. The driver’s auto insurance coverage will be considered a secondary coverage, and will only activate if damage claims exceed the limits of your policy.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Using a GPS While Driving Allowed

Tuesday, Apr 02nd, 2013

Using a GPS While Driving Allowed- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Is using a GPS while driving allowed? Technically Yes!

As reported by pressdemocrat.com, CHP Officer Jon Sloat (spokes person for the Sonoma County Office) says yes, it is legal, because the law regarding cell phone use only specifies holding it to talk or to text.

Officer Jon Sloat also cautions that “It’s not safe, but it’s not illegal,” “If you can’t drive safely while using a GPS, you’re weaving or all over the road, then your safe speed is zero.” - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Newly Added Exemptions to Hands Free Law Already Under Attack

Tuesday, Mar 12th, 2013

Newly Added Exemptions to Hands Free Law Already Under Attack - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Exemptions which went into effect January of this year, loosen the current hands free laws to allow for voice-operated or hands-free texting and for activating or deactivating a feature on a wireless communications device. But these exemptions may be removed if new Bill is successful. Assembly Bill 313 introduced February of this year seeks to remove those exemptions for being too dangerous.  There are currently only a few states which have no ban on hand held phone use while driving including Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Montana, South Carolina, and South Dakota. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

States About Evenly Divided on Automated Camera Ticket Enforcement

Tuesday, Mar 05th, 2013

States About Evenly Divided on Automated Camera Ticket Enforcement - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

While it might seem there is a red light camera every corner you turn, in actuality there are just about as many states that ban automated camera enforcement of traffic tickets as ones that allow it. According to data reported by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute, the United States is about evenly split. California, Texas, and Florida are some of the states which allow for red light camera enforcement (although currently do not allow for speeding camera enforcement). Some states which do allow speeding camera enforcement include Arizona, Colorado, Oregon and Washington. Nevada and many mid-west states are some of the states which do not allow any traffic ticket automated enforcement. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Tips to Avoid Cell Phone Tickets

Tuesday, Feb 26th, 2013

Tips to Avoid Cell Phone Tickets - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Although the hands –free laws specify exactly what activity is prohibited, from the outside of a vehicle it is very easy for an officer to mistake some other activity involving your phone (like changing a song or scrolling through a phone directory) for illegal cell phone use while driving (like texting). The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) provides some basic tips, which may help prevent you from doing an activity that the officer could mistake for distracted driving:

  1. Pull over. If you need to make a call, pull over to a safe area first.
  2. Use your passengers. Ask a passenger to make the call for you.
  3. Prepare. Review maps and directions before you start to drive. If you need help when you are on the road, ask a passenger to help or pull over to a safe location to review the map/directions again.
  4. Know the law. Familiarize yourself with state and local laws before you get in the car. Some states and localities prohibit the use of hand held cell phones. GHSA offers a handy chart of state laws on its website: www.ghsa.org/html/stateinfo/laws/cellphone_laws.html.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
