New red light cameras in Beverly Hills: Where they are and when ticketing will start - blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Look out for new red light camera intersections in the city of Beverly Hills.

According to LA Weekly, the new intersections will include: Crescent Drive/South Santa Monica Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard/ Benedict Canyon Drive, and Sunset Boulevard/Crescent Drive.

Under state law, if you get a ticket within the first 30 days of the cameras being installed, you will only get a warning not an actual ticket. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Young drivers vs old: Who is worse at texting and driving?

Young drivers vs old: Who is worse at texting and driving? – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Wayne State University published a study on distracted driving and how it correlates to the age of the driver.

For the study, a group of 50 people between 18 and 59 years old took driving simulators out for a spin. Researchers then sent them text messages, asking them simple questions like what was their favorite color.

The study which was published this year in the journal Accident Analysis and Prevention, shows that there is something unique to the distraction of texting that makes older and more mature drivers worse at it.

No matter how old you are, texting and driving is never a good idea. And with Distracted Driver Awareness month right around the corner, hands-free laws will be strictly enforced. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Short yellow light – enough for judge to dismiss this camera ticket

Short yellow light – enough for judge to dismiss this camera ticket- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Red light camera tickets are still a hot topic. They can easily set you back $400 – $600 each, so it’s no wonder so many of them are being challenged.

There are tons of rules saying how the red light camera systems have to be operated and sometimes those rules are broken. Tsk. Tsk. For example, a Riverside Court of Appeal overturned a red light camera ticket earlier this year, after finding state rules regarding the timing of yellow light intervals were not followed (see People v. Rekte).  You may never heard of Trial by Declaration, but it’s one of the California traffic court system’s little known secrets. It’s a great way to challenge your red light camera traffic ticket without ever going to court or hiring a lawyer. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Don’t Get Busted at a Railroad Crossing: Dos and Don’ts of Crossing the Tracks

Don’t Get Busted at a Railroad Crossing: Dos and Don’ts of Crossing the Tracks - blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

This week’s fiery crash involving a passenger train and a truck in Southern California is an important reminder of the dos and don’ts of crossing a railroad track.

If you can see a train or hear the warning signals of a train’s approach:

  • stop – at the limit line or before crossing the first track
  • keep your distance – at least 15 feet from the rail
  • wait – never go around or under any railroad it crossing gate while the gate is closed

And you know those red light camera tickets? You can get a similar ticket in the mail for failing to stop for a train, so just remember to stop, keep your distance, and wait. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

How to Avoid Getting Fooled by a Traffic Ticket Scam

How to Avoid Getting Fooled by a Traffic Ticket Scam - blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

If you get a call demanding payment for an unresolved traffic ticket, make sure it’s not a scam. The CHP is warning the public about a recent series of phone scams where the caller claims to be a member of the CHP and asks for payment for outstanding fines.

Another phone scam popping up in the mid-west, involves red light cameras where people are getting calls about tickets from red light cameras that don’t even exist.

If you do have a traffic camera violation you should get a notice in the mail that may include information like the courthouse, due date, driver name, vehicle information, and pictures of the car and driver in question.

If you weren’t handed a ticket by an officer and did not get a violation notice in the mail, then be wary of any phone call demanding payment for unpaid ticket fines –the court and law enforcement agencies will almost never call you directly. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Modernizing Traffic Stops – Proposed Legislation Would Allow for Mobile Driver Licenses

Modernizing Traffic Stops – Proposed Legislation Would Allow for Mobile Driver Licenses – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

All of a sudden, you drive by a black and white police vehicle on the side of the road, the officer inside with radar gun in hand.

Moments later you’re handing over your license and registration…but oops you forgot your license. That’s another violation to tack on to the speeding ticket.

But wait. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just pull up your license on your smartphone, show it to the cop, and save your neck?

That’s a realistic possibility considering San Fernando Valley Assemblyman Matt Dababneh has introduced AB 221, legislation that would let the Department of Motor Vehicles develop a mobile application for a digital driver’s license, which would be accessed via smartphone, as reported by the Daily News. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

LA Considers Giving Out Rewards for Tips on Hit and Run Drivers

LA Considers Giving Out Rewards for Tips on Hit and Run Drivers – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Hit-and-runs are kind of a big deal…

Did you know that leaving the scene of an accident – where anything was damaged – can result in a misdemeanor ticket? If guilty as charged you could be thrown in jail, have to pay a fine up to $1,000, or by both!

To avoid trouble for a hit-and-run, remember to always leave a note if the owner is not around.

The City of Los Angeles is so serious about cutting down on hit-and-runs, that it’s considering setting up a reward incentive program to encourage leads.

One idea being considered for the reward amounts is to set up a tier, ranging between $1,000 for property damage all the way up to $50,000 if the hit- and-run is fatal, reported MyNewsLA. -blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
