New Way to Defend a Speeding Ticket?

New Way to Defend a Speeding Ticket? – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Report by Local 10 News investigative reporter Ross Palombo, revealed a speeding ticket defense technique that could potentially be used by drivers all across the US.

According to the report, a driver was ticketed for speeding but with the help of some technology, found a way to prove he wasn’t.

The device is an insurance monitor from Allstate called “Drivewise.” Designed to record a driver’s speed to lower insurance rates, the data can also be downloaded to verify speed at precisely the same time a speeding ticket is written.

Although evidence from the devices may not automatically be trusted as reliable in court, leaving it to the defendant to prove the device is accurate, this could still provide wrongly ticketed drivers with a much needed ‘feather in their cap.’ – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Are Speed Display Trailers used for Ticketing Speeders

Are Speed Display Trailers used for Ticketing Speeders – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

A speed display trailer can often be seen set up on local roads, especially in residential neighborhoods and school zones. Many police agencies utilize these speed display trailers to encourage drivers to slow down. A speed display trailer holds an interactive sign, generally constructed of a series of LED lights which displays the approach speed of a vehicle. If the sign displays a driver’s speed as greater than the speed limit, it will generally not result in a ticket (unless an officer is stationed nearby within viewing distance) because the signs are not used for enforcement, just to increase driver awareness.  –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Caught Speeding Over 100 and What to Expect

Caught Speeding Over 100 and What to Expect- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

The officer may have caught you using police radar, bumper pace, or even aircraft. Now that you’ve been ticketed you may be wondering what your next step will be.

In California, speeding over 100 miles per hour is an infraction however you will likely be required to make a mandatory appearance in court. To compare, if you are ticketed for speeding below 100 miles per hour you can typically pay the fine or contest the ticket in writing without having to make an appearance in court.

Some judges will consider a written request to waive a mandatory appearance and allow you to pay the ticket by mail or contest it by mail. Such requests should be made well in advance of your due date so you have sufficient time to receive a reply from the court.

A speeding ticket over 100 can seriously affect a driving record because the California DMV assigns 2 points instead of the single point that most other speeding infractions carry. A California driver only needs 4 points to be at risk for a suspended license.  –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

One Judge’s Take on Courts Keeping Traffic Surveys on File and Tickets for Unsafe Speed

One Judge’s Take on Courts Keeping Traffic Surveys on File and Tickets for Unsafe Speed- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

Last year an 18 year old received a ticket for unsafe speed in Orange County. Adams, in his BMW, was nabbed by Irvine PD, using laser, for 70 in a 50. (additional details available newportbar.org/legalarticles)

Adams had a trial, the officer showed up, testified that his speed was unsafe in violation of California Vehicle Code 22350, and Adams was found guilty. Adams appealed. On appeal the conviction was reversed.

The reversal in part was due to the fact the officer did not bring certified copies of the traffic surveys to show that the speed limit of 50 mph on the street Adam’s was pulled over, was justified (the officer’s use of laser or radar on a street with an unjustifiably low speed limit violates speed trap laws). Instead the court took “Judicial Notice” of the surveys as they had copies of the survey available in the courtroom. As it turned out the speed limit of 50 mph was not justified by the traffic survey, the survey only justified a 55 mph speed limit.

Judge Geoffrey Glass held on May 9, 2012, “the trial court’s apparent practice of maintaining the survey in the courtroom and making it available to facilitate the conviction of defendants…who might otherwise obtain favorable judgment under the speed trap laws, create an appearance of partiality and impropriety.” The judge also held that it is the obligation of the prosecution to lay foundation for the admission of a traffic survey.

Looks like it just got tougher for officers testifying in Orange County trial court, as to why an individual’s ticket for unsafe speed should be upheld. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Tickets For Driving Too Slow Can Be Just as Expensive (and Damaging) as Speeding

Tickets For Driving Too Slow Can Be Just as Expensive (and Damaging) as Speedingblog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Did you know you are just as guilty as someone who is speeding if you are driving more slowly than everybody else and fail to move out of the way?

Many states require drivers who are traveling below the normal speed of the flow of traffic to move to the right (regardless of whether YOU are going the speed limit) and California is one of them.

Everyone in California is required to drive at a speed which is “reasonable and prudent” according to factors such as weather, traffic, and the type of road you are driving on. But apart from this any vehicle driving at a speed less than the normal speed of traffic moving in the same direction shall be driven in the right-hand lane for traffic (or as close as practicable to the right-hand edge or curb). An exception would be if you are overtaking and passing another vehicle.

Many may feel that speeders pose a bigger safety threat than those who drive ‘over cautiously’ however according to a David Solomon (United States Government researcher who wrote a paper in 1964 on the subject of speed and crashes), the crash risk increases at speeds below the average traffic flow versus those above the average traffic flow. It’s not surprising then that a ticket for a slow moving vehicle failing to keep to the right can negatively affect your driving record the same (and is also the same cost) as speeding 1-15 mph above the posted speed limit of  65 mph.-  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Can Speeding Tickets Over 100 MPH Really be Dismissed?

Can Speeding Tickets Over 100 MPH Really be Dismissed ?-blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

If you were caught red handed speeding in excess of 100 MPH you are looking at not 1, but 2 points being added to your motor vehicle record and an expensive fine of more than $800.00! What’s more, 2 point violations stay on your record for 7 years! Compare to a 1 point violation which falls off after 3 years. If you find yourself in this situation though, all is not lost.  These types of tickets CAN be beat using a proven method called “Trial by Written Declaration”.

Take this driver who came to Ticketbust.com earlier this year. The driver was ticketed for 120 + MPH out in Barstow, CA while driving on the Interstate 15. Ticketbust.com was able to get the ticket dismissed using a Trial by Written Declaration which raised doubt as to whether the officer had pulled over the correct car on account of the driver  had just come out of bumper to bumper traffic and had no opportunity to even reach such a high speed.

Commercial Drivers Who Drive Too Fast Face Serious Consequences

Commercial Drivers Who Drive Too Fast Face Serious Consequences –blog submitted by www.ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  

Did you know that if you hold a commercial driver’s license and drive a commercial vehicle at a speed of 15 miles per hour or more above the posted speed limit for trucks with trailers that you can be cited for a misdemeanor? It’s true!

The officer can choose to cite you for the usual violation for speeding in a commercial truck, California Vehicle Code section 22406 (which is an infraction) or he can choose to instead cite you under section 22406.1 (a) of the California Vehicle Code which is a much more serious offense!

Don’t risk it! If cited for the latter you could be facing serious consequences such as a suspended driving privilege, jail time, or outrageous fine.  –  blog submitted by www.ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
