Is texting at a stop light ok?

Is texting at a stop light ok? blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  For many drivers it’s tough to resist the urge to use a phone at some point while driving.  Even more tempting is to use that phone while stopped at a red light or during a traffic jam. But California court rulings (like People v. Nelson) tell us that being stopped at a red light is not a green light for texting.  Remember, you have to be off the road and parked if not using a hands-free device. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Why driving too slow can be just as bad as going too fast

Why driving too slow can be just as bad as going too fast –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

If you’ve ever driven on a busy California freeway at 65 mph you probably were just about run off the road.

While it’s rare for a driver to be ticketed for driving too slow, it happens. Tickets for impeding traffic carry the same penalties as speeding: a couple hundred dollars fine and a negative mark on your driver record.

To avoid this ticket a good rule of thumb is to go with the flow of traffic, unless traffic is flowing above the legal limit, in which case you should move over to the right. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers fight their traffic tickets.

Why you are more likely to get a ticket this month. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, the number of motorcyclists on the road increases in the spring and summer.

Since the CHP will be putting an emphasis on motorcycle safety this month, drivers should watch out for motorcycles hiding in blind spots and share the road to avoid getting pulled over.

To reduce chances of a ticket or collision, motorcyclists should always use signals when changing lanes and wear protective gear, including a proper helmet. –  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.
