Sorry drivers these excuses won’t get you out of that traffic ticket

Sorry drivers these excuses won’t get you out of that traffic ticket – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

StarNews tried out common excuses on a police officer to see what would or would not work to get out of a ticket. Maybe not surprising that most excuses like these won’t do the trick:

  1. “I am just running late…”
  2. “I had to pee…”
  3. “I was just going with the flow of traffic…”
  4. “My speedometer must be broken.”
  5. “When was the last time you checked your radar gun?”
  6. “Do you know who I am?” (arguably the worst attempt)

Of course the only way to avoid one is to obey the law. But there are so many driving laws you are bound to slip up once or twice.

Teens say they text and drive because of their parents

Teens say they text and drive because of their parents – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Survey says: 48 percent of teens they text when driving alone mostly to update parents.

According to the collaborative survey by Liberty Mutual and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decision), teens feel their parents expect them to text back…even while driving.

Pulled over for speeding: Now what?

Pulled over for speeding: Now what?Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

It’s a good idea to remain seated and in park until the officer pulls away.

During this time you can take a minute to record details about the incident while it’s fresh. It’s also a moment to calm your nerves – we all know that getting a ticket of any kind is a stressful activity.

If you feel the need to leave the scene prior to the officer (as an example if he/she tells you to drive away or offers assistance to merge back into traffic), do so in a calm manner using all appropriate signals and maneuvers.

Remember, you may be mad or frustrated that you received a speeding ticket, but you don’t want to bring undue attention to yourself or end up committing another violation!

Smartphone use while driving is way beyond just texting

Smartphone use while driving is way beyond just textingblog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Although texting and emailing while driving are still popular, other smartphone activity is picking up.

As the recent AT&T study revealed, 1 in 10 admit to video chatting while driving and one-quarter of those polled admit to using Facebook while driving!

In light of this, AT&T says it will expand the “It Can Wait” campaign from a focus on texting while driving to include other smartphone driving distractions.

Won’t be long before California’s “distracted driving” laws are updated to cover this kind of modern smartphone use. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
