 Assemblyman Matthew Harper, introduced legislation this month that would keep any new red light traffic cameras from being installed in California.

Although red light cameras already installed could stay, the bill - AB 1160 - would require safety studies of existing cameras throughout the state.
 
Red light cameras, which are supposed to reduce accidents, are causing accidents and taxpayers are shouldering the burden of maintaining them, according to the press release. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

• Designate a sober driver and leave your car keys at home.

Avoid getting ticketed during Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Avoid getting ticketed during Distracted Driving Awareness Month- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Last year more than 55,000 drivers were ticketed for talking or texting during April’s Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

In preparation for next month’s police crackdown remember:

  • even if you’re using speaker phone or a headset you can’t hold your phone
  • you can use your phone’s GPS but it’s risky; it can look like texting
  • at night, the bright glow from your phone’s screen is a dead giveaway

Did you get a ticket but weren’t on your phone? Contact your cell provider and ask for a copy of your call and text records. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Unfair Speeding Ticket? Keep Calm and Keep Your Record Clean

Unfair Speeding Ticket? Keep Calm and Keep Your Record Clean - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

So why did the officer decide to single you out? Whatever the reason, you probably feel you did not deserve that speeding ticket.

Being wrongly ticketed can make people do crazy things.

Take the Utah man for example who has been trying to protest his speeding ticket fine for the past several years by sending “payment” in the form of a wooden check.

Here at TicketKick, it's been our mission to help California drivers keep calm and keep their record clear of unfair speeding tickets.

How you ask?

By a process in the California traffic courts system called Trial by Declaration. It's a wonderful system because it's all just paperwork. We can help do it so you can challenge your speeding ticket without you ever needing to show up in court and without you needing to get a lawyer to argue on your behalf.- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Who should get to decide if driverless cars are safe for you to drive?

Who should get to decide if driverless cars are safe for you to drive? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

As of October 31, 2014, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) had issued Autonomous Vehicle Testing Permits to the following manufacturers:

  1. Volkswagen Group of America
  2. Mercedes Benz
  3. Google
  4. Delphi Automotive
  5. Tesla Motors
  6. Bosch
  7. Nissan

Before the self-driven cars can be made available to everyone though, the DMV is developing regulations to establish the requirements that manufacturers must meet to certify that their autonomous vehicle has been successfully tested, meets certain safety requirements, and is ready for the general public to operate on public roads.

But Google officials argue that the technology behind autonomous vehicles is too intricate for state government representatives to fully grasp - and therefore regulate, reported the Sacramento Business Journal online.

This begs the question, who should get to decide if driver-less cars are safe – the tech giants who built the car or the DMV? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Tips to Keep Your Driving Safe in Foggy Weather

Tips to Keep Your Driving Safe in Foggy Weather- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Did you know that you have to turn on your lights if you can’t see more than 1,000 feet ahead of you during the day?

This can come up when you hit pockets of deep fog like when driving on the coast or in the central San Joaquin Valley.

The Fresno Bee in an interview with David Singer, community outreach and media relations officer for the CHP’s Central Division in Fresno, presented some important tips for navigating your wheels through foggy weather:

1)     if driving is unavoidable, allow extra time to get to the destination and slow down

2)    go at the speed you are comfortable with, and that you can stop if you see a problem

3)    keeping a safe distance from the car ahead is mandatory - one car length per 10 miles per hour of speed is recommended

4)    if the fog is too thick for safe driving, take an exit, find a safe location and wait it out

5)    it’s legal to pull to the side of a road that’s not a freeway - turn on flashing hazard lights if you think your location is a hazard to other drivers

Are Ride-Hailing Service Drivers Required to Register for Special Plates?

Are Ride-Hailing Service Drivers Required to Register for Special Plates?- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Earlier this month the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) issued a statement hinting that Uber, Lyft, and other ride-hailing service drivers who use their personal cars for profit, should be required to get commercial license plates.

However, after a flood of media coverage sparking debate, the DMV has taken a step back.

In its recent press release, the DMV stated, “In the coming days, the DMV will be meeting with regulators and industry to continue working through this issue. Pending this further review, Vehicle Industry News alert VIN 2015-1, which affected ride share operators, is hereby revoked including any reference to the requirement of a commercial plate.” - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Driving While Snacking: What will they think of ticketing next

Driving While Snacking: What will they think of ticketing next - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

A man says enjoying a double quarter-pounder with cheese as he cruised down a highway outside Atlanta got him in trouble with the law - and a ticket for eating while driving, reported cbs news.

Is that sort of thing ticket-able in California?

Similar to Georgia, the state of California has rules on distracted driving. And much like Georgia’s law, California’s doesn’t single out food.

That said, the CHP has been known to ticket for just about anything that takes your eyes off the wheel, especially during the month of April – Distracted Driver Awareness Month. In a prior press release, the CHP said, “Focus on driving, and avoid eating, drinking, reading, grooming, smoking, and any other activity that takes your mind and eyes off the road.”

We’ve even seen this sort of thing written up as an unsafe speed charge – a bit of a stretch if you ask us (and probably why we’ve seen many of these tickets dismissed). The process used by TicketKick can help you with an undeserved ticket; call us or visit us on the web.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

The Real Cost of Missing that Posted Sign

The Real Cost of Missing that Posted Sign - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

It's no wonder you found yourself accidentally disobeying a posted sign. If they're not blocked by trees they're obscured by posters for lost cats.

How bad could it be for missing that sign?

Besides a negative point on your driver record you’re looking at hefty fine, after all the state and county assessments are tacked on to the base fine.

Just like the OC register recently reported, a seemingly cheap ticket is more like a few hundred dollars when all is said and done.

And now you’re thinking, how is that fair? After all, the only warning you had for that sign was hidden behind a tree.

That's where TicketKick comes in.

TicketKick can get help you contest your ticket, without you ever having to step foot in court, using a process called Trial by Written Declaration. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

What is a Speed Contest and Why it's Risky to Even Watch

What is a Speed Contest and Why it’s Risky to Even Watch - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.


Just last month, police in Los Angeles had to break up an early-morning, "Fast and Furious"-style highway takeover, reported nbc news.

What is a Speed Contest?
Speed contests or exhibitions of speed, commonly known as "street race," "speed race," or "drag race,” are illegal.

And if you just watch…
Even a spectator, who engages, aids, or participates at a speed contest, could be cited.

Bottom Line

Its risky behavior and the penalties are harsh:
•    Arrest or imprisonment
•    vehicle impoundment
•    fined up to $1,000.
•    driver license revocation
•    car insurance cancellations or huge premium increase.
