Brooklyn, NY, August 12, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Traffic tickets are a major problem for drivers around the world. Ticket revenue goes directly from motorist into the cities purses as revenue, and they not going away. Traffic tickets are a major source of revenue for cities especially large ones like New York City, and cities are finding new ways to increase revenue from traffic tickets like car boots, and red light cameras. Some cities charge a court appearance fee along with the cost of a traffic ticket even if the motorist is found not guilty. The top five ways motorists can avoid getting traffic tickets are easier said than done.
Many motorists get lulled into thinking that the police are friendly neighborhood cops fighting bad guys. Not so according to a report by www.nbcnewyork.com (http://www.nbcnewyork.com/investigations/NYPD-Officers-Arrest-Quota-Exclusive-Interview-Pressure-Numbers-374077091.html) cops are pressured by police departments into issuing an avalanche of traffic tickets to motorists; a practice commonly known as ticket quotas.
In New York City, in an article by Al Baker, and Ray Rivera of the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/10/nyregion/10quotas.html?pagewanted=all ) the quota number is said to be as high as twenty tickets per day.
Here are Popoalert.com's top five ways to avoid traffic tickets.
5. Locate and avoid the police.
The simplest way to avoid getting a ticket is to avoid the police all together.
Always look ahead, use the rear, and side mirrors to locate oncoming police vehicles, walking policemen, or meter maids. Police vehicles a couple blocks away can easily be avoided using this strategy. Cops can't ticket what they can't see.
4. Get a double parking partner
Motorists who double park, or hydrant park should get a parking buddy ready to move the vehicle. Double parking is illegal and some cops will still issue a ticket to occupied double parked cars. Simply circling the block will solve this issue.
3. Do not drive in front of a stationary police car on "Ticket Day"
Ticket day is the last day for cops to fill their quotas.
On ticket day a heavy police presence will be noticeable; ten cop cars in a eight to ten block radius. In an excerpt of an article written in Gothamist.com (http://gothamist.com/2010/03/03/cop_claims_nypd_quota_is_20_summons.php) and an abc7ny.com news report (http://abc7ny.com/archive/7305356) Ticket Day is the day everyone gets a ticket guilty or not. "At the end of the night you have to come back with something," Officer Adil Polanco told ABC. "You have to write somebody, you have to arrest somebody, even if the crime is not committed, the number's there. So our choice is to come up with the number." "They have to meet a quota. One arrest and twenty summonses," said Officer Polanco. Stop signs are popular targets of cops on ticket days. Blind stop signs should be avoided at all costs.
2. Get a dash camera
Dash cameras are becoming very popular and provide video and audio evidence of any infractions with the cops if the event was recorded. Motorists using dash cameras as evidence should consider an attorney to attest to it's validity according to Tyler Therriault of law firm Donaghue and Labrum LLP .com (https://donaghuelabrum.com/2015/12/30/personal-dash-cams-and-the-law/ ).
