Avoid the insurance hike for forgetting to signal

Wednesday, Jun 29th, 2016

Avoid the insurance hike for forgetting to signal. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Failure to signal for a turn can increase your insurance rate by about 20% on average, according to InsuranceQuotes.com.

So when are you supposed to signal anyway?

According to California traffic law, if any other vehicle could be affected by the movement of your car you have to signal, and turn it on at least 100 feet before the turn.

If it’s a really sunny day, the DMV recommends also using hands signals since bright sunlight can make the signal lights hard to spot. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Tuesday, Jun 21st, 2016

Why teen drivers need to be reminded to buckle up. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, compared to other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt usage.

Reportedly, only 54 percent of high school students admitted to always wearing seat belts when riding with someone else.

In light of the recent nationwide “Click It or Ticket” campaign let’s remember to remind those teen drivers in our lives to buckle up (whether they are a driver or a passenger). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

More traffic tickets handed out on holiday weekends

Wednesday, Jun 01st, 2016

More traffic tickets handed out on holiday weekends. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Holidays weekends are some of the busiest travel times. Where there’s an overpass there’s probably a police car parked under it and where there’s an emergency lane there’s probably someone pulled over signing a ticket. 

California Highway Patrol officers will take to the roads this holiday weekend, conducting its annual Memorial Day Maximum Enforcement Period throughout the state.

The period begins at 6:01 p.m. on Friday, and continues through 11:59 p.m. on Monday. Although seatbelt usage is a huge focal point, the CHP will also be on the lookout for distracted and drunk drivers. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Is it ever ok to drive solo in a carpool lane?

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

Is it ever ok to drive solo in a carpool lane? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Is there ever a time to drive solo in a carpool lane? Not usually, but the California Highway Patrol website lists a few exceptions to the general rule:

-Part-time carpool lanes (common in NorCal) allow solo drivers outside of the designated HOV hours.

-You can use Express Lanes (like FasTrak) without a passenger for a toll fee.

-Drivers of vehicles with special Clean Air Decals don’t need a passenger (unless locally prohibited).

-Solo motorcyclists can use carpool lane unless otherwise posted, but can’t ride on or over solid double lines.

In addition to the above guidelines, drivers should be aware that regardless of the number of passengers, any vehicle towing a trailer can’t be in a carpool lane. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

National Bike Safety Month: What drivers and bicyclists should know. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

May is National Bike Safety Month and the California Highway Patrol is reminding motorists and bicyclists to share responsibility for road safety.

Drivers should be reminded that they are required to give three feet of clearance when passing a bicycle on the road.

Bicyclists must also obey the laws of the road, such as stopping at stop signs, and riders can increase their safety by wearing reflective clothing, a helmet, and riding with the flow of traffic. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Tips for avoiding cell phone tickets

Thursday, Apr 28th, 2016

Tips for avoiding cell phone tickets. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Distracted Driver Awareness Month may be coming to an end but police will continue to ticket if it looks like you are on your phone.

From outside your car an officer can easily mistake a lawful activity changing a song or dialing a number on your phone, for texting.

Avoid getting stopped in the first place by pulling over if you need to use your phone, asking a passenger to dial for you, or reviewing maps and directions before you start to drive. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Got pulled over? Now what

Thursday, Apr 21st, 2016

Got pulled over? Now what. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

What you do or say during a traffic stop could make or break you. 

If you’re just being difficult, you can bet the officer will be too if you try and fight the ticket that you’re sure to get. But hey, if you’re nice you might get off with just a warning.

When you get pulled over try to eliminate anything that might come off as a potential safety threat. Keep your hands on the wheel and avoid quick reaching movements.  And if you’re worried about saying the wrong thing, just remember your right to remain silent. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Do bicyclists have to obey speed limits?

Thursday, Apr 14th, 2016

Do bicyclists have to obey speed limits? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Fines and speeding tickets for mountain bikers could soon be real, according to gearjunkie. The speed limit enforcement, which began earlier this month is taking place within northern California’s parklands, where trails are shared by bikers, hikers, and pedestrians.

Marin County, is now enforcing 15 mph speed limits on trails using speed guns and other tactics to slow riders down, according to gearjunkie.

While the enforcement aspect may seem new, the law itself isn’t. State law requires bicyclists to obey traffic laws like red lights, stop signs, and even the speed limit. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets
