Distracted Driver Awareness Month: Here’s help to get through it without a traffic ticket

Distracted Driver Awareness Month: Here’s help to get through it without a traffic ticket – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

You’re not out of the woods yet. There’s still one week to go in “Distracted Driver Awareness Month.”

Ditch the phone while driving. And remember some of the common ways you might get caught; here’s the breakdown by insurance.com:

  • The panhandler on the corner – the next time a panhandler approaches your car, you had better put your phone down, at least if you live in Canada.
  • The trucker in the next lane – elevated SUVs and even 18-wheelers give officers a bird’s-eye view of a driver’s hands.
  • The spotter on the overpass – Visibility is key to catching drivers in the act of texting, and an overpass is the perfect vantage point.
  • You, staring at your own lap – Drivers busy with their phones tend to be obvious.
  • The texting detector – The police soon may have a new tool in their arsenal when it comes to detecting drivers who can’t put their phones down.

How to keep your driving record clean when you drive a lot

How to keep your driving record clean when you drive a lot blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

The average American drives 29.2 miles per day, according to new study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and the Urban Institute.

When you drive a lot, no matter how careful you are, it’s really not a matter of if, but when you get a traffic ticket.

A typical moving violation – such as rolling a stop sign – would raise a hypothetical driver’s premium by 32 percent on average in California, according to a study by InsuranceQuotes.com

There is hope though.

As long as you’re ticket is not a misdemeanor, you can use a little known process in the California court system, called Trial by Declaration, to contest your ticket.

You don’t have to miss work to go to court because it’s all done through paperwork. Best of all there’s no traffic school, negative mark on your license, or ticket fine if your ticket gets dismissed.

Can’t afford to pay your traffic ticket? Ignoring it is not the answer

Can’t afford to pay your traffic ticket? Ignoring it is not the answer – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

In California the fines for traffic tickets, even the minor ones, are sky high.

Those who can’t afford to pay their ticket (or don’t want to) simply ignore it.

But this can get your license suspended and it’ll be expensive to get it back.

Surprisingly someone who ignores a traffic ticket is likely to have a harder time getting their license suspension lifted than someone with a DUI, according to a cbsnews report. After a DUI you can at least apply for a restricted license but there’s no policy like that if you get suspended for not taking care of your ticket.

So don’t ignore that ticket! But you don’t have to just roll over and pay it either.

You can learn more about your options for contesting your ticket for a dismissal or a reduction at www.ticketbust.com. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Can you be forced to sign a traffic ticket you don’t agree with?

Can you be forced to sign a traffic ticket you don’t agree with?blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Can you be forced to sign a traffic ticket you don’t agree with? Unfortunately, yes. The alternative is to go to jail.

Take for example the driver who was tased after refusing to sign a traffic ticket and then resisting arrest.

But what if you don’t agree with it?

We don’t recommend you go down the ‘Don’t Tase Me, Bro’ route.

It’s best to just smile, sign the ticket, and dispute it later.

As long as your ticket is not a felony or a misdemeanor, you can use a little known process in the California court system to have your ticket contested.

New Bill seeks to limit revenue gained from traffic tickets

New Bill seeks to limit revenue gained from traffic tickets blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Fed up with outrageous ticket fines? You’re not alone.

The “Fair Justice Act” introduced earlier this month by U.S. Representative Cleaver, seeks to end the practice of using law enforcement as a “cash register.” It would even prevent cities from generating more than 35 percent of their budget from traffic tickets.

This bill if passed, would be welcomed by SoCal residents. The Los Angeles metropolitan area is the most expensive place in California to get a speeding ticket, reported nbc los angeles.  If you have the misfortune of getting pulled over by a California law enforcement officer (and are worried about the cost of a speeding ticket) go to www.TicketBust.com. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

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.
