Traffic Violations

Obviously, the best way to avoid being on the receiving end of a speeding ticket is to not speed. However, if you find yourself traveling faster than the posted speed limit either intentionally or unintentionally, Money Talks News reports that there are some steps you can take to reduce your chances of being ticketed.

Since speeding accounts for 66 percent of moving violations, it would seem that law enforcement officers are regularly on the lookout for speeders. Being aware of what is going on around you can be a good first line of defense in avoiding a ticket. Speed limits may be reduced because of an accident or because you are traveling through a construction zone. Therefore, if you notice that cars around you are slowing down, you probably want to do the same.

Along those same lines, keeping an eye out for places that a police officer may be waiting to catch speeders is a good idea. If you see someplace that appears secluded or hidden from the sight of approaching drivers, chances are an officer has had thought that too and may use that spot to monitor how fast drivers are going.

In addition, a car that is going 10 miles per hour over the limit but draws a lot of attention to itself may end up with a ticket while an otherwise unremarkable looking car going the same speed may not. Keeping your car in good shape and fixing broken taillights and headlights immediately will keep your car from standing out.
