These minor traffic tickets can raise your car insurance rates in a major way. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  No matter how safe of a driver you are, inevitably everyone gets traffic tickets. A new report by InsuranceQuotes shows just how bad a minor traffic violation can be for your car insurance.  For example, drivers who receive a minor speeding violation might pay an average of 38% more for car insurance in California. Other fairly minor violations that also carry high financial penalties include tailgating, turning without a signal, and driving solo in a carpool lane. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Why you are more likely to get a cell phone ticket during the month of April. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

This month is all about distracted driving. Or should we say it’s about not driving distracted.

The Department of Transportation notes at any given moment during the day in 2014, hundreds of thousands of vehicles were being driven by someone using a hand-held cell phone, according to the CHP.

During “Distracted Driver Awareness Month,” drivers caught texting or using their mobile devices when behind the wheel will be issued citations. Specifically, the CHP warns that April 7 and 20 will be zero tolerance days, when all agencies will be especially vigilant for distracted drivers. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

How much is too much for a Red Light Camera ticket fine?

How much is too much for a Red Light Camera ticket fine? – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

A San Mateo state senator is making an effort to bring down the fines for “rolling right” red light camera violations to something that low-income people can afford.

According the SF Gate.com, Sen. Jerry Hill thinks that although red light camera have a safety value, the current punishment for the slow, rolling right-hand turns doesn’t fit the crime. He introduced legislation last week that would cut the $500 fine in half.

To avoid a red light camera turning violation in the first place, remember to stop fully behind that limit line before turning right, even when there is no oncoming traffic. – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Is your car a ticket magnet?

Is your car a ticket magnet? – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Ever wonder if there is any correlation between the car you drive and how many tickets you get?

Well, according to a study by Quality Planning, a company that provides services to auto insurers, there could be.

The 2010 study, examined various vehicle types and calculated the tendency of each type to be ticketed based on the number of moving violations every 100,000 miles driven.

Topping the charts is the Mercedes Benz, SL-Class, with the Toyota Camry–Solara close behind.

Lower on the chart, but still making the cut is the VW GTI. Somewhere in between is the Hummer, Scion Hatchback, and Acura Integra. – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Chances of your traffic ticket getting lost or not filed with the court just got slimmer

Chances of your traffic ticket getting lost or not filed with the court just got slimmer. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

According to the Sacramento Bee, instead of hand writing tickets, Sacramento PD will use new electronic ticketing devices.

The good news, tickets will be a lot neater so you can actually read what’s on it, like what the officer said you did wrong and your court date.

The bad news? No more hoping the officer will forget to turn in your ticket or lose it on his way to the station.

Once the court has a copy of your ticket in their system the clock is ticking and you can’t ignore it. With this new technology, the court will automatically receive a copy of the ticket when the officer issued it. More and more police departments seem to be making the switch from writing tickets long hand. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Driving too slowly just as bad as driving too fast?

Driving too slowly just as bad as driving too fast?Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

Would you believe it if we told you driving too slowly is considered just as dangerous as driving too fast?

Probably not. But driving too slow is considered impeding traffic and the state of California views it the same as speeding. It will cost you just as much plus puts a negative mark on your driving report.

While it’s rare for a driver to be ticketed for driving too slow, we’ve seen it. If you have to drive slower than the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, it’s always a good idea to find a safe place to pull over and let traffic pass. – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
