How To Avoid Getting A Traffic Ticket

The best way to avoid getting a traffic ticket is to memorize all the traffic rules and laws by heart and to obey them under all circumstances. There are different implications of violating certain rules and regulations in different states. On some violations a traffic ticket is issued, while on others only a warning is given to the driver. Some people say the only way to avoid getting a ticket is to stop driving. However, itís not the truth. There are people who have a clean lifetime driving record. What do they do? They simply obey the law. Here are some tips that will be useful the next time you hit the road.

Drive carefully. This includes being aware of all the traffic signs and signals and reading them cautiously while driving. Not stopping on a red light and crossing a stopped school bus are serious violations which are sometimes overlooked by young drivers. Some people choose an alternative route to avoid encountering a school bus along the way. While it may be frustrating to obey all traffic laws, you certainly wouldnít want to ruin your reputation by getting pulled over by a police office for a minor offence. So, itís a good practice to drive cautiously and be aware of your surroundings.

Make it a habit to wear your seatbelt whenever you drive. Although you donít get points against your license for this type of an infraction, you will get a warning as well as a fine of up to $65 if you are caught not wearing seatbelt. Wearing seatbelt gives an impression of a competent and careful driver and if you are being pulled over for some other reason, such as speeding, the fact that you were wearing seatbelt may help if you decide to plead your case in the court. Always carry your driverís license with you and if you donít have one, donít drive.

Pay attention to regular maintenance of your vehicle. Head and taillights not working properly, broken windshield, cracked rearview mirrors, missing license plate and a number of other issues can get you into trouble on the road. In addition to this, it is against the law to get under-car kits, install high intensity headlights or set up other devices on your car in some states. Watch out for police traps on the road. Donít appear guilty while driving. Have confidence that you have a valid license and that you are legally allowed to drive.

Some people use devices such as laser detectors to avoid getting a speeding ticket. However, such types of devices are illegal to be installed on vehicles in some states. Itís better to stay on the safe side because if some police officer does catch you for some minor infraction, you may get your licensed revoked for having such devices inside your car. Nowadays speed cameras have been placed on all major roads to catch speeding drivers. Stay as close to other cars as possible to avoid being noticed.

And finally, if you think you were pulled over by an officer for no reason, you can also fight a traffic ticket in the court of law.
