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

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

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?

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

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

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

Police looking for all types of distracted driving not just texting

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
