How Many Times Have You Been Stopped and Given a Traffic Ticket in the Past 18 Months?
If you were stopped one of two times in the past 18 months you might be mildly interested in this post. With one ticket, you kind’a shrug, pay the ticket, and do traffic school. You are out a few hundred dollars, the time it takes to do traffic school, you are inconvenienced, but you move on.
It might seem quick and painless to pay the ticket but your insurance rates will be affected for years to come.
With ticket number two, things are becoming more serious. You cannot do California traffic school more than once in an eighteen-month time period. Yeah, I know, there are a few exceptions, but even if you qualify for the exceptions and get traffic school – the points still go on your driving record and your insurance goes up. Not much benefit in doing traffic school – at least in my opinion and for me. But most of us can live with one ticket on our driving record.
It is tickets three, four, and five that will change your life and motivate you to find a solution. At least that is what motivated me to learn how to fight traffic tickets. Acquiring more than two tickets in a short period of time is what this post is about. If that’s you, then you are the person that I am talking to here. I know how desperate you are for a solution because I was you. I acquired four moving violations and a parking ticket over thirteen-months.
What you need to know is this. You can beat these tickets. I spent several hundred hours learning how to fight my tickets. I talked to lawyers, did research, bought books, went to innumerable internet sites, found case law, read the law that pertained to my traffic tickets, and sat in the courtroom watching the proceeding.
You can fight your traffic tickets yourself and win. I did. I will never take another ticket and just pay it.
I learned that just because a police officer gives me a ticket doesn’t mean I am guilty. Take my speeding ticket for example. I might have been going faster than the posted speed and that would be why the police officer wrote me a ticket. On my ticket is a cvc number telling the court what California vehicle code I broke.
Yeah, I know it is starting to sound technical and I am bringing up the legal references. But believe me once you know how the vehicle code applies to your ticket, you too, will know what you need to do.
