Busting Myths about Costly Carpool Lane Tickets

Busting Myths about Costly Carpool Lane Tickets- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

This question comes up a lot: When driving in the carpool lane, what does the solid white line on the inside of the double yellow line mean, and can you cross it?

Retired CHP officer, weighs in on this topic to pe.com (on the road), and confirms our thoughts on this:

“The presence of this edge line next to a carpool lane’s double solid yellow lines in no way negates the prohibition against crossing there,” said retired California Highway Patrol Lt. Mike Soubirous. “It is an often-told wishful-thinking myth. But getting caught for doing that can be quite costly.”

If you got “busted” for a carpool lane violation, contact Ticketbust.com for help in getting your ticket dismissed. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

No Front License Plate in California: Get a Ticket While You Sleep

No Front License Plate in California: Get a Ticket While You Sleep – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  In California, as sleek as it may look without, you are required to attach that front license plate too (Veh. Code 5200 requires 2 plates).

The only exception, is when the DMV only issues one plate, but this pretty much only applies for trailers and motorcycles.

If you do decide to tempt fate and forgo the front license plate thing, you’re bound to get ticket (so keep Ticketbust.com’s number handy). One Northern California resident, learned the hard way, and even got a ticket while asleep in bed!

And, you’ll only get so many fix-it-tickets, before the cops figure you out, and give you a ticket that is “not eligible for correction.” Yep, they can do this if there is evidence of persistent neglect, or the violator does not agree to promptly correct the violation. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Ticketed in a Construction Zone? Why Pay More When You Don’t Have to

Ticketed in a Construction Zone? Why Pay More When You Don’t Have to - blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  “Traffic Fines Double in Construction Zone.”

We see these signs often. But does it mean you will automatically pay more if you get a ticket? Not necessarily. Under California law, the “construction zone fine,” only applies during hours when work is actually being performed. To avoid paying more (when not required), take photos of the area showing there are no “men at work.” You’ll want to use a camera with a date/time stamp feature, and for the date/time to be very close to that which is listed on your ticket.

Tip: ·       Many digital camera and smartphone cameras do not have a date/time stamp feature, so after transferring your photos to a PC, open the image file, right click, and then select properties, where you can find record of the date and time the photo was taken.·       Alternatively, there are Apps available for your smartphone that will record the date, time, and even the location (e.g. iPhoto or Timestamp Camera).  -blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Radar Detectors Are Legal but Could Make You More Likely to Receive a Ticket

Radar Detectors Are Legal but Could Make You More Likely to Receive a Ticket -blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

What do police officers say are the things that make them more or less likely to give a ticket to a speeding driver? (this question originally appeared on Quora). Experts weighed in, and “radar detectors,” made the cut.  Tim Dees, Retired cop and criminal justice professor, answered on Quora,If I saw or heard some reference to a radar detector being in the car, I wrote the ticket every time. A radar detector sent me the message that “I intend to exceed the speed limit and get away with it.”

Unlike jammers, which seek to interfere with radar used by police to measure the speed of moving objects, radar detectors are legal in most places in California. However, if your detector should fail, and the police officer gets wind of it being in your vehicle, remember it could sway him/her to give you a ticket instead of a warning. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Arrested but Not Convicted of DUI? Little-Known Law Allows the DMV to Suspend Your License

September 18, 2014 Leave a comment

Arrested but Not Convicted of DUI? Little-Known Law Allows the DMV to Suspend Your License – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Just for being arrested on suspicions of DUI, the California Department of Motor Vehicles can suspend your license.

Recently, an Orange County judge threw out Thuan Ha’s DUI case, yet a month later, a mid-level DMV employee suspended the Westminster resident’s license based on the same evidence the courts rejected.

How does this happen?

The power comes from a little-known law that grants the DMV the authority to suspend the license of anyone arrested on charges of driving with a blood-alcohol content over the legal limit.  The law has been in effect for nearly 25 years, but it now faces a legal challenge in a lawsuit filed by a nonprofit group called the California DUI Lawyers Association and attorney Steven R. Mandell.

It’s back to school time. Are your child passenger restraints age and height appropriate? blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Back to school time is all about what the kids are wearing. What seatbelt they are wearing, that is. Are your kids buckled in right for their age (or height)? Under 8:

  • Under 8 (or shorter than 4 foot 9 inches) must be seated in a booster seat, with a lap and shoulder belt.
  • Over 8 At least 8 years old (or at least 4 foot 9 inches in height) can ride with just a seatbelt, as long as it can cross their lap and shoulder comfortably.

For a full list of guidelines visit the website of the CA Office of Traffic Safety. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
