How a Typical Traffic Ticket Can Affect Your Privilege to Drive

How a Typical Traffic Ticket Can Affect Your Privilege to Drive- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

If you start accumulating tickets for moving violations after you are licensed to drive in California, you may be considered a negligent operator and may lose your privilege to drive.

A typical speeding ticket (if cited for less than 100 miles per hour) adds one point to your record. Red light tickets, stop sign tickets, and other offenses like crossing double yellow lines, will also add one point to your record. Commercial drivers face more serious penalties because a typical ticket, like one for speeding can add one and a half points.

Most offenses that are designated as “1 point” violations will remain on a driving record for a minimum of three years from the violation date. Remember too many points can result in you losing your ability to drive, not to mention astronomical insurance rates! - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Speed Limit of 65 Has Not Always Been Allowed on Major California Freeways

Speed Limit of 65 Has Not Always Been Allowed on Major California Freeways- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Speed limits have traditionally been the responsibility of the states. In the mid-1970s, however, Congress established a national maximum speed limit by withholding highway funds from states that maintained speed limits greater than 55 mph. The requirement was loosened for rural interstates in 1987 and completely repealed in 1995. As of today, many states have speed limits of 70 mph or higher on some portion of their roadway systems. (Source - website of Highway Safety Research and Communications)

According to CHP website, there have been fewer citations issued for speed violations compared to the same time frame in 1994.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

How to Find Your Courthouse After Losing a Ticket

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

Ignoring a Red Light Ticket Can Put a Dent in Your Credit Report

Ignoring a Red Light Ticket Can Put a Dent in Your Credit Report- this blog was written by TicketKick.com,Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

You shouldn’t just pay a red light ticket without understanding the affect it could have on your driving record or driving privilege, but you also should not ignore a red light ticket. Ignoring a red light ticket can lead to another charge being added to your original ticket, a failure to appear, and could potentially harm your credit score.

Newly released report from CreditData.com informs readers about unexpected things that may harm their credit. MSNBC news reporter Chuck Todd just found out the “hard way” that not paying a traffic ticket is a collision that can put a dent in a credit report. The traffic ticket was for running a red light. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Fighting your ticket without a Lawyer

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

Hand Held Cell Phone Use Higher Among Female Drivers

Hand Held Cell Phone Use Higher Among Female Drivers - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS) provides nationwide probability-based observed data on driver electronic device use in the United States. The NOPUS is conducted annually by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2011 NOPUS found more female drivers than male drivers drove while using a cell phone without a hands free device.

Most local police departments and the CHP have been participating in a statewide crackdown during the national distracted driving awareness month of April. Last year approximately 57,000 tickets were issued. If you get a cell phone ticket it is a reportable offense.  - 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

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

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
