Texting not the only distracted driving danger: Mobile games quickly taking over.blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Texting isn’t the only distracted driving danger.

Safety advocates are also concerned about drivers being addicted to their mobile games and playing while behind the wheel. Just recently, a driver reportedly crashed into a parked patrol car while playing Pokemon GO.

Whether it’s looking at a phone, playing a game, or even eating behind the wheel, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says distracted driving accounts for thousands of injuries each day. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers fight their traffic tickets.

Are more California drivers using a phone behind the wheel?

Are more California drivers using a phone behind the wheel?  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  We all know it’s bad to text and drive.  And illegal. But drivers can’t seem to help themselves. According to a study conducted by the California Office of Traffic Safety in April of this year, the number of California drivers seen using a mobile device during the day has reached a new high.  The study notes though that due to the difficulty of observing mobile device use in a vehicle actual usage is likely even higher. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers fight their traffic tickets.

Is texting at a stop light ok?

Is texting at a stop light ok? blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  For many drivers it’s tough to resist the urge to use a phone at some point while driving.  Even more tempting is to use that phone while stopped at a red light or during a traffic jam. But California court rulings (like People v. Nelson) tell us that being stopped at a red light is not a green light for texting.  Remember, you have to be off the road and parked if not using a hands-free device. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Why you are more likely to get a cell phone ticket during the month of April.

Why you are more likely to get a cell phone ticket during the month of April. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

This month is all about distracted driving. Or should we say it’s about not driving distracted.

The Department of Transportation notes at any given moment during the day in 2014, hundreds of thousands of vehicles were being driven by someone using a hand-held cell phone, according to the CHP.

During “Distracted Driver Awareness Month,” drivers caught texting or using their mobile devices when behind the wheel will be issued citations. Specifically, the CHP warns that April 7 and 20 will be zero tolerance days, when all agencies will be especially vigilant for distracted drivers. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Why cell phone ticket numbers are dropping in California

Are Californian’s putting down the phone while driving?

Although police across the state have handed out less cell phone tickets, California Office of Traffic Safety officials aren’t convinced that drivers are using the phone less.

The penalty for a cell phone ticket in California is currently less than $200, which for some people may not be enough of a deterrent.

Experts believe people might be getting better at hiding their phone, using voice command, and Blue Tooth, or there simply may not be enough police manpower to chase down all cell phone violators. – Blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
