Police Driving Badly got you Seeing Red? You’ll Love This New Tool - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

A police car without sirens, zipping in and out of lanes, without signaling? If this has got you seeing red then you’ll love this new tracking system for monitoring police officers driving habits:

Ford, is now offering a tracking system for its Taurus and Explorer-based Police Interceptors that can monitor the driving behavior of law enforcement officers (seatbelts, speeding, cornering or braking hard), according to FoxNews.

The technology can then take this information and determine whether the driving behavior, like speeding, was appropriate for the situation, such as whether or not the officer behind the wheel was responding to call. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Latest Techniques Used by Police to Catch Texting Drivers

Latest Techniques Used by Police to Catch Texting Drivers- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

In CA it’s illegal to text and drive. But most drivers still do it.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that at any given daytime moment, over 600,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving.

So cops are getting creative and coming up with new ways to catch you texting behind the wheel.

Here are 6 of the latest techniques being used by police, according to Insurance.com.

  1. The panhandler on the corner

The next time a panhandler approaches your car, you had better put your phone down, at least if you live in Canada.

  1. The trucker in the next lane

Elevated SUVs and even 18-wheelers give officers a bird's-eye view of a driver's hands.

  1. The spotter on the overpass

Visibility is key to catching drivers in the act of texting, and an overpass is the perfect vantage point.

  1. Your own cellphone records

This is not a commonly used tactic unless you have been involved in a car accident. If the police believe texting led to an accident they will gladly pursue your phone records.

  1. You, staring at your own lap

Drivers busy with their phones tend to be obvious. They drive slowly, hesitate at lights and are prone to weaving. Display any of these behaviors and there is a good chance you will be pulled over.

  1. And now, the texting detector

The police soon may have a new tool in their arsenal when it comes to detecting drivers who can't put their phones down.

You Might be Driving Distracted Even if Using Hands Free

You Might be Driving Distracted Even if Using Hands Free- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Siri and other hands-free, voice-activation systems, may cause unwanted distraction for drivers.

Voice-activated smartphones and dashboard infotainment systems, let drivers do things like send a text message, while keeping their eyes on the road, and their hands on the wheel, but many of these systems require more concentration from drivers rather than less, according to studies released Tuesday by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and the University of Utah. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.

Got a Red Light Camera Ticket you Want Dismissed? Check the Yellow

Got a Red Light Camera Ticket you Want Dismissed? Check the Yellow- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The length of a yellow light (aka “amber”), can affect how many drivers are caught by red light cameras.

If the yellow light is not legally long enough, it can also affect how many drivers get their tickets dismissed.

City hearing officers in Chicago for example, are increasingly tossing tickets because the yellow light time stamped on the citation is less than the minimum required by the city, the Tribune analysis showed.

If you do receive a ticket give us a call. We can help you determine if the yellow light time on your ticket meets California’s legal requirements of the minimum length of a yellow light. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

What is the Law in California for Driving With Music too Loud?- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Next time you are driving along listening to your favorite song, think twice before cranking up the tunes when it gets to the good part.

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.
