Sleepy driving is impaired driving

Sleepy driving is impaired driving. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

For many, the switch to Daylight Saving Time, on March 13, means losing an hour of sleep.

If you have a hard time adjusting to the time change this could affect your driving.

According to research by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), the effect of not getting enough sleep (awake over 18 hours) is similar to having a blood alcohol content of .05 percent.

The NSF recommends that drivers get seven to nine hours of sleep a night.  - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

As bad as texting? How to avoid this driving distraction

As bad as texting? How to avoid this driving distraction. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Next month in April police will be ramping up enforcement for “Distracted Driving Awareness Month.”

Distracted driving can occur without you even realizing it.

Police data, analyzed by Erie Insurance, revealed that a fatal crash is about five times more likely to be caused by a daydreaming driver than a driver using a phone. You can minimize daydream driving by:

  1. Keeping your eyes moving;
  2. Chewing on something;
  3. Taking different routes then you’re used to.

The California Rolling Stop: Most drivers don't even realize they are doing it

The California Rolling Stop: Most drivers don’t even realize they are doing it. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Did you really stop at that stop sign? Many people roll through stop signs on auto pilot without even realizing it especially along routes they take all the time.

According to Manteca Bulletin.com, Police Chief Nick Obligacion guesses that at least 50 percent of the time most motorists don’t come close to stopping in the manner California law requires.

Remember the rules:

  1. If there’s a limit line stop the entire vehicle behind the line.
  2. If there’s a crosswalk stop behind the crosswalk.
  3. Yield in lieu of stopping only when there’s actually a yield sign in place of a stop sign.

What your favorite music says about the way you drive

What your favorite music says about the way you drive. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

A survey by Kanetix.ca (online comparison site for insurance and other financial tools) asked 1,000 drivers about what they liked to listen to in the car, their driving habits and driving record.

Overall the survey showed that the type of music drivers listen to does seem to have some correlation to driving habits.

Heavy metal music and talk radio listeners were more prone to getting a speeding ticket. While Classical and folk music listeners were probably less prone.

Hip-hop listeners were more likely to be charged with careless driving. And country music or classic rock listeners were more likely to have been charged with a DUI. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Traffic safety: Game plan for the Big Game

Traffic safety: Game plan for the Big Game. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Along with a big crowd, Super Bowl festivities are sure to increase traffic in the Bay Area.

The CHP has released its game plan for keeping the roads safe during this time. 

The public can expect to see increased law enforcement presence on and around February 7, 2016.

Plan ahead how you will get home after game-day socializing – get a DD, use public transport, or hail a cab.

If you’re hosting on game day, the CHP suggests offering non-alcoholic beverages and helping guests find a sober ride home. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

Common myth about police enforcement debunked

Common myth about police enforcement debunked. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.

When we hear “speed trap” we think steep hill and a hiding officer.

This begs the question, does an officer have to be out in plain view when monitoring traffic?

We’ve got news for you. There appears to be no state law preventing an officer from discreetly parking behind that tree or that building. So remember, just because you don’t see them, doesn’t mean they can’t see you.- This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets

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

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

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

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

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
