Traffic School or no Traffic School…

That is the question, or is it? Well it’s not so much a question or a choice but rather a matter of eligibility. You just got a ticket, pick your “crime”; speeding, red light camera or any traffic violation that is not a misdemeanor… there’s a countless array of transgressions available to us all. Under […]

The Devil made me do it

Just when you thought you were finally safe to roam the streets without those pesky red light cameras keeping track of your precarious intersection crossings… well, think again. Don’t panic, not yet anyway. Someone in Sacramento, Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, has introduced a new bill – AB 666 also knows as the “Devil’s Bill” (was this […]

Dismissing Your Traffic Tickets

Getting tickets dismissed in court no longer an option… or so it would seem.

And so this is Christmas

Yes I know, another song reference but it seems befitting at this time. If you are familiar with John Lennon’s lyrics then you will understand. Another year has gone by… no wait, that’s next week’s blog. Things have slowed down a bit as it usually does this time of the year. It doesn’t mean that […]

Beating the System

If you recently received a traffic ticket in California don’t feel isolated, yours is one of approximately 16 million of the citations issued in the state annually. For most of us, the initial instinct is to try and fight it ourselves but once we get over the shock of how expensive these tickets are in […]

Happy Birthday to us…!

The Traffic Ticket News Blog is one year old. We have posted 52 installments of traffic related news and information. I would like to thank my friends and colleagues who throughout the year have suggested topics and emailed me news bits that have eventually turned into blog postings. I enjoy writing the blog… coming up […]

“Darn” Expensive Lawyers…!

Aren’t they? Well, especially the good ones. It’s one of those situations where we dislike lawyers, tell lawyer jokes and think they are horrible people until you need one… ain’t that the truth.
