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.

The push to make lowered speed school zones enforceable 24/7

The push to make lowered speed school zones enforceable 24/7 – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

There is a bill working its way through that would increase fines in school zones, and, oddly enough allow them to be enforced even when schools out or no kids are around.

The bill, titled SB632, would: reduce school zone speed from 25 mph to 15, expand the zone to within 1,300 feet from schools, and allow them to operate 24-hour, 7-days-a-week. This bill is opposed by the Automobile Club of Southern California.

Seatbelt tickets: Legal requirements for young passengers and whether a ticket can raise insurance

Seatbelt tickets: Legal requirements for young passengers and whether a ticket can raise insurance – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Did you know that a seatbelt ticket can result in an insurance rate increase of 5.6% (on average according to MainStreet.com, Laura Adams, senior analyst for InsuranceQuotes.com).

We all know about “click it or ticket” for adult drivers, but let’s not forget the basics for younger passengers:

  • A child seat is required for any child under age 8 or shorter than 4’9.
  • Children over 8, or taller than 4 feet 9 inches, must use a seatbelt.

As for the teens… all passengers, over 16 are responsible for themselves. While the driver can be ticketed, so can the passenger teen. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
