As soon as the police officer pulls you over for speeding, do you start thinking about what excuse you're going to use? Do you start wondering if you can talk your way out of the ticket?
Everyone knows that when you see a speed limit sign, you're supposed to keep your car traveling below that speed level. However, this is not the only type of speed restriction law that you're in danger of violating. In fact, you could get in trouble for a speeding violation even if you're not driving above the posted speed limit.
A police officer pulls you over and tells you that he or she thinks you were speeding. Let's not get into whether you actually were or not, but that's the reason for the stop. The officer is thinking about giving you a ticket.
You drive through the same part of town every day. It starts out in a 25-mph zone right near your house, but it changes to a standard 55-mph zone about two miles along in your daily commute. Since you know the area and you know the sign is coming, you usually start accelerating before you actually get to it. This way, you can get up to 55 mph when you reach the sign. Is this legal?
Being issued a speeding ticket is stressful. Not only are you facing a monetary fine, but also points on your license. If you don't fight the ticket, your license will take a hit and any future citations could lead to a suspension of your driving privileges if you accrue enough points. Let's take a look at how you can fight a speeding ticket in today's post.
Being issued a speeding ticket is not the end of the world. The ticket, if one of many on your record, could affect the status of your driver's license. This is when you need to look into attending traffic school or a defensive driving class. Not only will attending these classes help your insurance rates, they will also help the status of your license.
The talk across the country of late has been about digital license plates on all types of motor vehicles. Well, they have finally come to the state of California. So far, there are at least 100 digital license plates in use across the state. These new plates are considered to be "connected" and the message displayed on them can be changed by the driver of the vehicle or a fleet manager in Encino.
Getting pulled over in California is never a pleasant experience. You will most likely drive away from the traffic stop with some sort of ticket. It might not be what you were initially pulled over for, but it's still a ticket. Traffic tickets in California can be expensive. They can also put points on your driving record depending on the violation. Here's how to fight a traffic ticket in Encino.
It would almost be impossible to think that there could be a person in California who has never received even so much as one traffic ticket. To some, getting that occasional speeding ticket may seem annoying but can be chalked up to a normal thing. However, for many people the fines that go along with even the most minor infraction can be simply unpayable because their budgets do not have this kind of extra income.
Millions of Americans have received and dealt with traffic citations, especially speeding tickets, that ended up crippling their wallets. Whether such pricey citations actually encourage drivers to reduce speeds is uncertain, but the amount of money violators must pay is a largely disputed topic. California has particularly costly speeding penalties, and while the law enforces equal penalties to speeding drivers, some experts claim that such tickets target poor residents and are spent toward unethical purposes.
