Emerging Technology Would Help Police Easily Detect Texting Drivers

Emerging Technology Would Help Police Easily Detect Texting Drivers- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Police may soon have a new trick up their sleeve, making it easier to snag texting drivers.

A Virginia company is working on developing a device, to be used much like a radar gun, that would pick up radio signals sent out from a vehicle when a driver is sending a text, reports CBS.

Since California does not ban all texting while driving, such a device if used in California would have to differentiate between hands-free and non- hands free texting. Under current California, law, a driver can dictate and send a text via a voice-operated and hands-free system (e.g. Siri). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

What's that in the sky? Highway Patrol Planes Looking for Speeders in Construction Zones

What’s that in the sky? Highway Patrol Planes Looking for Speeders in Construction Zones - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Whether you are cruising the highways in So Cal or Nor Cal, it’s inevitable. You will encounter a construction zone, and this translates to reduced speeds, and, of course, higher fines if you receive a ticket in the “cone zone.”

Most recently, the speed limit was lowered to 55 mph for those driving eastbound on Interstate 80 through Across the Top construction project in Natomas. 

What will CHP officers do to enforce certain construction zones? 

In addition to using motorcycle officers (who can easily weave through traffic to catch speeders), CHP Officer Hertzell, says they will be tracking speeds from the air with their plane or helicopter.

How serious are they?

“If we have to wait seven miles to get this person, then we are going wait seven miles — we have nowhere else to go,” said Hertzell.

You can clean up a Criminal Record, what about a Driving Record?

You can clean up a Criminal Record, what about a Driving Record?- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

In California, an expungement process allows you to remove certain criminal convictions from your record, after one year has passed. Can you do this for tickets too?

The same program is not available for traffic ticket convictions, which unfortunately can affect employment opportunities for many.

Once a ticket is on your record, there is no way to remove it until a set amount of time has passed, after which point it will “fall off” (typically at least 3 years and up to 10 in some instances). All the more reason to contest a ticket, and, keep it from going on your record!

Avoid Speeding Ticket Scams: Here's How

Avoid Speeding Ticket Scams: Here’s How- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

“Ticket-rigging” (alleged) was recently discovered by the Houston Police Department (and reported on by KHOU-TV).

Dubbed “Ticket-rigging,” it can be described as when an officer issues a speeding ticket to a driver, then names two officers as witnesses to the violation on the ticket, when really there’s only one. The extra officer, although not present at the time of your traffic stop, will get overtime to appear in court to say they witnessed the violation and testify against you.  

Here’s how to avoid getting scammed:

-        If your ticket indicates that a speed measuring gun (lidar) was used then it’s possible two-officers were involved (one stationary pointing the gun, the other driving to catch speeders);

-        If your ticket indicates that speed was  determined by “aircraft,” it’s normal for two officers to be named on your ticket (one following in a plane, the other following drivers on the ground);

-        If your speeding ticket indicates any other method, and you only noticed one officer during the traffic stop, then be wary, it could be a scam

This could happen anywhere, so be on the lookout, and, remember, if you do get a speeding ticket (or any other type of traffic ticket), Ticketkick can help you dismiss it. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

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.

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
