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.

California Tint Laws: What’s the effect on vehicles registered out of state?

California Tint Laws: What’s the effect on vehicles registered out of state? – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

What’s lawful in one state may not be lawful in another. Window tint is a good example of this.  In Arizona for example many vehicles come standard with window tint because of the harsh rays.  While it may be legal in your home state beware if driving through California.

The law on tint here doesn’t exclude vehicles registered in another state. Officers can use their discretion and let you off with a warning if you are only just passing through, but technically you can get a ticket.  Be aware of the local tint laws in your state: many states, like California, allow only very light tint or none at all on front windows.  Oh, and don’t rely on car detailers to tell you the legal amount of tint – after all they wouldn’t make very much if they only installed the legal tint limit. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Got an Unfair Red Light Ticket? How to Challenge it – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Traffic lights often change at the worst possible time. You make a split second decision, the safer decision and you make the yellow light.

Unfortunately, the police officer’s eyes for too slow and he didn’t see that you did safely make the yellow light…

Fortunately, there is a way in California to make your traffic ticket and all the headaches that come along with it disappear. There are no downsides to challenging your red light ticket, but there are lots of upsides if you succeed – no fines, no points, and no worries.

It’s a process in the court system called Trial by Declaration. It’s so simple and easy that it is a big surprise that more people are using it.

All it requires is filling out some paperwork and making the right argument to give you best chances of having the court dismiss your unfair red light ticket. TicketBust has been putting together this paperwork for over 100,000 people for almost 10 years. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
