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Patrol (CHP) previously posted guidelines motorcyclists could follow when engaging in lane-splitting, but has now withdrawn its safety guidance on motorcycle lane-splitting, reports the LA Times.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

The Need for Speed (Limit Signs)

The Need for Speed (Limit Signs) - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

One of the most common reasons drivers use when they are caught speeding by officers is that they never saw a speed limit sign (especially in rural areas).

But the question is: when is this excuse actually valid?

Harsh as it may seem, sometimes no speed limit sign needs to be posted; you are just expected to “know.”  Like, you will never see a “100 mph” sign, but you can never exceed 100 mph.

On the other hand, a 2 lane highway, with a 55 mph speed limit, IS supposed to have signage; a “reasonable” amount (according to the Vehicle Code) and posted every 5 to 10 miles (according to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices).- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Here are the most common places you’re NOT supposed to park:

  • on a sidewalk or crosswalk
  • blocking a driveway
  • at a red curb
  • on a freeway (with few exceptions)
  • less than 15 feet of a hydrant
  • less than 7 ½ feet from a railroad track
  • more than 18 inches from curb

Traffic Fines Doubled in School Zones?

Traffic Fines Doubled in School Zones? - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Drivers are subject to double traffic fines in constructions zones, and the same could apply to school zones.

Existing traffic laws applies a reduced school zone speed limit while children are entering or exiting during school hours or noon recess period. If it passes, Senator Cannella’s bill, introduced earlier this year, would effectively double the base fine of a ticket received in a school zone.

The increased school zone fine would go a step further than the current law.

If the bill passes, the increased traffic fine would also be triggered during a time when a “school-sponsored activity” is going on. Potentially problematic for passing drivers who may be unaware a school function is in progress if outside of normal school hours. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Traffic Ticket Avoidance: Know When Passing is and is not Allowed

Traffic Ticket Avoidance: Know When Passing is and isn’t Allowed - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Is there ever a right time to pass?

Passing:

  • a long, straight stretch of roadway
  • behind a another vehicle traveling below the speed limit (if you have to go even 1 mile per hour over the speed limit to pass you are technically breaking the law)

No Passing:

  • as you approach the top of a hill
  • on a narrow bridge

Remember, a ticket for “unsafe passing” is about $300 and the DMV considers this to be a “point violation”, too many of which can lead to a driver’s license suspension. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
