New system being tested that would allow drivers to contest a ticket online

Wednesday, Jun 10th, 2015

New system being tested that would allow drivers to contest a ticket online - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Some courts are making it even easier for ticketed drivers to contest a citation they receive.

An “online ticket review program” is being tested in four courts in Michigan. It would allow someone fighting a ticket to answer a series of questions online and submit it to a judge for review.  While the main idea is to save the public time and effort, in theory it could save the court and taxpayers money on the personnel and paperwork side, says News8.

No word as to whether California will follow suit and allow tickets to be contested online; but we do have the luxury here of being able to contest a ticket by mail. For more information about how a ticket can be contested in writing, without having to appear in court, call us or visit us on the web at www.ticketkick.com. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Cellphone violations: Different set of rule for teen drivers

Tuesday, Jun 02nd, 2015

Cellphone violations: Different set of rule for teen drivers - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Using a phone while driving is oh-so-tempting for teen drivers.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, teens read or send text messages 26 times more often than their parents think they do.

For teen drivers it’s no wonder the rules for using a cell phone while driving are even stricter.

It’s not allowed at all - not even if you’re using a hands free device. The only exception is for emergencies.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

CHP steps up enforcement on problem freeways for Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

As part of Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, the CHP is stepping up patrols along certain trouble spots.

On the 110 and 405 freeways and along the Angeles Crest Highway (roads which have the highest number of motorcycle crashes), officers will focus on violations committed by both vehicle drivers and motorcyclists, according to abc7.

Drivers, remember to look for motorcyclists before changing lanes.

Riders, remember lane-splitting is not explicitly legal yet (might be if new bill gets passed) so take caution doing it.

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month continues through the end of May.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

California's Chief Justice seeks to remove roadblocks when challenging traffic ticket fines

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

California’s Chief Justice seeks to remove roadblocks when challenging traffic ticket fines - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

According to the Judicial Council of California, the Chief Justice is asking for emergency action to adopt a rule of court to facilitate access to justice for court users challenging traffic fines:

“Many of the procedures and practices regarding traffic fines derive from statute,” the Chief Justice said. “However, the law is confusing and may result in inconsistent practices or policies throughout the state.”

In addition, the Commission on the Future of California’s Court System, is taking a broader look at traffic proceedings and the impact of traffic fines, fees, and penalties.- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

These three traffic tickets will raise your insurance rates the most

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

These three traffic tickets will raise your insurance rates the most - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

According to MainStreet.com, Laura Adams, senior analyst for InsuranceQuotes.com, says of all the moving violations a motorist can earn a ticket for, these three are the worst:

1)     DWI/DUI: Average rate increase in California = 184%

2)     Reckless driving: Average rate increase in California = nearly triple.

3)     Speeding 31+ miles over the limit: Percentage of average rate increase = 29.26%

If you’re like most people you probably cannot afford to pay the high ticket fines or increases in your insurance rates.

Now of course, we do not encourage reckless driving, but no matter how safe of a driver you are, inevitably everyone gets traffic tickets.

What are you really paying for when you pay off your traffic ticket fine?

Tuesday, May 05th, 2015

What are you really paying for when you pay off your traffic ticket fine? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The LA Times uncovered that about 80% of what Californians pay for their moving violations isn’t part of the so-called “base fine” at all:

One reason you pay so much when you are ticketed for, is that there are surcharges added to your ticket to help victims of violent crimes; to pay for training police officers; to provide services to people with traumatic brain injuries; to build new court facilities; and even one to protect the state's wildlife!

It’s no wonder most people simply cannot afford to pay the high ticket fines.

We say: don't just pay off your ticket when you can fight it.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

How often your driving record gets checked by your insurance company might depend on where you live

Wednesday, Apr 29th, 2015

How often your driving record gets checked by your insurance company might depend on where you live - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

According to a recent study by insurancequotes.com, it's becoming more common for insurers not to frequently check the driving records of their policyholders, partly due to states charging a lot for access to driving records.

Each state charges a different amount for obtaining a motor vehicle record – ranging from $2 in California, to $10 in Pennsylvania, to nearly $30 in Oklahoma, according to the report.

It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg for insurers to access a driving record in California, which means you might get checked more often here.

For information on how to keep your ticket off your record and away from your insurer’s prying eyes, visit us on the web at ticketkick.com. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

Another Los Angeles city kicks red light cameras to the curb

Wednesday, Apr 22nd, 2015

Another Los Angeles city kicks red light cameras to the curb- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Last year, the City of Santa Clarita began looking at whether making left-turn yellow lights longer at some intersections would decrease red light running. And it did. Dramatically.

As of this month the City has ceased red light camera ticketing all-together.

Now for the bad news. If you’ve got an upcoming court date for a City of Santa Clarita ticket issued prior to April 2015, it doesn’t go away just because the cameras are no longer active.

But don’t think - They caught me on camera, I’m done for!

There’s a lengthy list of reasons why red light tickets can get dismissed: an unclear photo of the driver; a misidentified driver; a noncompliant light; the driver had a legitimate safety reason for not stopping; and the list goes on…

For help “kicking” your red light camera ticket to the curb, call us or visit us on the web. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

LAPD cracks down on jaywalking: How to cross the street without getting a ticket

Wednesday, Apr 15th, 2015

LAPD cracks down on jaywalking: How to cross the street without getting a ticket-by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

According to LA times, during a 4 year period the LAPD issued over 13,000 tickets to pedestrians who stepped off the curb when the red light was flashing.

If you’re walking to save on gas the last thing you want is an expensive ticket for jaywalking…

So how do you avoid tickets when stepping out on the pavement?

  • follow pedestrian signals
  • cross at an intersection or a marked crosswalk
  • don’t step out in front moving vehicles
  • don’t lollygag - peds can’t (unreasonably) delay traffic when crossing

A pedestrian ticket won’t put a negative mark on a driver record but can be as much as $200. If you need help with a ticket you received call us or visit us on the web www.ticketkick.com. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Police looking for all types of distracted driving not just texting

Tuesday, Apr 07th, 2015

Police looking for all types of distracted driving not just texting - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

April isn’t just about egg hunts and bunnies - its Distracted Driver Awareness Month too.

Police are out in full force and looking for any activity that takes your eyes off the road.

Traditionally we think of talking on the phone or texting, but police have been known to ticket for other types of distracting activities like: putting on makeup, reading, or eating.

While there’s no specific law against it, under California law a driver can be ticketed for disregarding the safety of others which allows police to ticket for otherwise legal behind-the-wheel activities. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
