Stop Signs: Aren't Bicyclists Required to Stop Too?

Stop Signs: Aren’t Bicyclists Required to Stop Too?- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Believe it or not, stop signs are not optional for bicyclists.

A bicyclist who fails to stop for a stop sign can be ticketed just like a driver of a car, under the same Vehicle Code, section 22450.

Although violations occurring on a bicycle are not assigned a negligent operator point in California (the points that go on your driving record), bicycle violations do carry just as hefty a fine.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Buckle Up Fido When Driving - It's the Law

Buckle Up Fido When Driving – It’s the Law- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

In California, no person may drive any animal in the back of the vehicle (like the bed of a truck), unless the animal is secured in such a manner to prevent jumping or falling from the vehicle.

It’s also a good idea to buckle-up Fido on his own seat when inside the vehicle. Officers have been known to ticket drivers for “unsafe speed” or “reckless driving,” if driving with a dog sitting or leaning over the driver, in such a manner that might hinder the driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle.

So, buckle up for safety (and ticket prevention), both you and your furry friend!  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Gear Up for New Traffic Law- Space Cushion for Cyclists

Gear Up for New Traffic Law- Space Cushion for Cyclists - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

As the month of September nears, we’re reminding motorists of a new traffic law that police will start ticketing for starting September 16, 2014.

Dubbed the “Three Feet for Safety Act,” it will become a citable offense for drivers to pass a cyclist with less than three feet of clearance.

If there’s not enough room, don’t take a chance with being ticketed, instead slow down and pass only if you can do so safely.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Redlight Camera Tickets - Spotting a Phony

Redlight Camera Tickets - Spotting a Phony- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The number of U.S. cities with roadside cameras is on the decline, from 540 in 2012 to 508 this year.

While red light camera use is on the decline, there are many cities left throughout California where red light cameras are still active.

So, if you received a red light camera ticket, make sure it’s valid... There are tell-tale signs to look for like a due date and courthouse.

Ticketkick can help you spot a phony (snitch) ticket, and, help you fight it too if you do have a real one. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Motorcycle Tickets: Legal to Lane Split?

Motorcycle Tickets: Legal to Lane Split? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) previously posted guidelines motorcyclists could follow when engaging in lane-splitting, but has now withdrawn its safety guidance on motorcycle lane-splitting, reports the LA Times.

This begs the question is it still legal to lane split?

There is currently no law in California that specifically prohibits motorcyclists from splitting lanes. However, motorcyclists should be cautious to avoid other types of tickets when lane-splitting. We have seen riders ticketed for splitting lanes in an unsafe manner – like unsafe speed, or unsafe lane movement.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Getting a Traffic Ticket: Do You Have to Sign it

Getting a Traffic Ticket: Do You Have to Sign it - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

“The officer made me sign it.”

So why should you have to sign a traffic ticket when you feel (or in some cases know) you did nothing wrong?

Signing the ticket given to you by an officer is not an admission of guilt (as printed above the place you sign). By signing the citation you are simply promising to appear in court (or take care of your ticket on or before the due date).

Without your signature on the citation, the officer would have to take you into custody, and nobody wants that. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Driving and Road Rage: Dont Wage it

Driving and Road Rage: Don’t Wage it- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

We’ve all been through it; getting cut off on the highway, being tailgated, or some cell-phone-handling motorist slams their brakes for no reason just ahead of you.

In California, there are so many reasons every day to lash out and vent a little frustration on another driver; however, motorists should always be careful to curb their anger since road rage is actually a punishable offense.

California law prescribes court ordered 6 month suspension of driving privileges to curb serious road rage (those who commit any kind of physical assault on another driver, pedestrian, or bicyclist). Jail time is a significant possibility, as well as mandatory court-approved anger management course.

Given the harsh consequences of road rage, lashing out toward someone’s brief moment of ignorance on the road, is just not worth it. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Driving on the Freeway Name that Lane

Driving on the Freeway – Name that Lane- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

If you get a ticket and need to describe the incident, it’s helpful to know how traffic lanes are numbered. Officers will also often mark the lane they saw you driving in on your ticket using just a number.

Traffic lanes are described as follows:

  • Left or “fast” lane is referred to as the “#1 Lane.”
  • to the immediate right of the “#1 Lane” is the “#2 Lane,” and so on.
  • If you are on a freeway with a carpool lane, the left lane is still referred to as the #1 Lane, while the carpool lane is simply that

As a general rule, use the left lane if you need to pass, the right lane if you need to slow down, and the middle lane if you are looking for the smoothest travel (odds are you won’t have to adjust your speed as much). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Tips to Avoid Drunk Drivers This Fourth of July

Tips to Avoid Drunk Drivers This Fourth of July - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

As plans are being made for an exciting 4th of July, motorists should be aware of impaired drivers.

Although impaired drivers appear at any time throughout the year, alcohol consumption, and in turn impaired drivers, increases during holidays.

If you catch yourself driving with an impaired driver on the road:

  • it is best to maintain your position behind that motorist; however, if you are in front of it,
  • try to make the first right hand turn possible to avoid any problems.

Avoid Collisions (And Traffic Tickets) By Keeping Your Distance

Avoid Collisions (And Traffic Tickets) By Keeping Your Distance- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Did you know that most collisions occur when drivers do not maintain enough space when traveling behind other vehicles?

As a general rule of thumb, you should follow the good ole’ three second rule that we learned in Drivers’ Ed, which is also suggested by the DMV.

When the vehicle ahead of you passes a certain point such as a sign, count “one-thousand-one, one-thousand-two, and so on.

If you pass the same point before you finish counting…you’re probably too close. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
