California’s expensive traffic ticket fee structure may soon change. – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

If you’ve ever received a ticket in California you might recall being surprised at just how expensive it was.

California Legislative Analyst’s Office recently reported that it is taking a look at the high fees tacked onto traffic tickets and recommending a needed change in the way criminal fines and fees are collected.

Take a $35 fine for running a stop sign which actually costs $283 once surcharges and fees are added on. That fine has gone up $83 in the last 10 years, according to CBS Sacramento.

The report also says the state should consider adjusting fines based on the individual’s ability to pay. – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Why cell phone ticket numbers are dropping in California

Why cell phone ticket numbers are dropping in California. Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Are Californian’s putting down the phone while driving?

Although police across the state have handed out less cell phone tickets, California Office of Traffic Safety officials aren’t convinced that drivers are using the phone less.

The penalty for a cell phone ticket in California is currently less than $200, which for some people may not be enough of a deterrent.

Experts believe people might be getting better at hiding their phone, using voice command, and Blue Tooth, or there simply may not be enough police manpower to chase down all cell phone violators. – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

New law January 1, 2016 clarifies rules of the road for electric bicycles blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

New “e-bikes” law takes effect on January 1, 2016. This legislation clarifies the regulation of electric bicycles in California like how and where cyclists can ride electric bicycles.

E-bikes will not be subject to the registration, licensing, or insurance requirements that apply to motor vehicles but the same rules of the road will apply to e-bikes that apply to human-powered bicycles.

Is your vehicle winter ready? blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

You might be ready for the holiday season but is your vehicle up to speed for winter weather?

You can get a ticket if your vehicle isn’t road safe. And nobody wants that.

Remember, your vehicle needs good tires to handle bad weather. Tread depth should be checked on a regular basis, as well as rotating your tires as recommended in your vehicle owner’s manual. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Why red light camera tickets have got motorists confused

Why red light camera tickets have got motorists confused. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Red light camera enforcement varies so greatly from county to county, even city to city, it has many drivers frustrated and confused.

Some cities, like Riverside, have quit. While others, like Beverly Hills, has added more red light cameras. Then there’s the question of whether one can be ignored.

It’s rumored that tickets issued by Los Angeles County can be; but, while it’s a chance some are willing to take, there is no official court policy in writing to rely on, so it’s risky business.

In Orange County for example, a driver’s record will be affected by ignoring a red light ticket, according to NBC Los Angeles, so it is important to know the rules depending on where a ticket is issued. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Enjoy the holidays and prevent the frustration of a DUI – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

The holiday season is in full swing and so is police enforcement.

To reduce impaired driving in California, the CHP will conduct traffic safety presentations, DUI checkpoints, saturation patrols and actively participate in the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, anti-DUI campaign.

A DUI crash or arrest can be avoided by designating a sober driver, using public transit, calling a taxi, or by staying where you are for the night.

As CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow says, spending a little money to get home safely is a bargain compared to the cost of a DUI arrest which can exceed $15,000. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
