A new law in California puts new restrictions on drivers who receive a traffic ticket and wish to attend traffic school to keep their driving record clean. California legal company, TicketKick® helps drivers keep their driving record clean by assisting in contesting traffic tickets for a Flat Fee™ and a full money back guarantee. Drivers who’s tickets are dismissed do not receive a point on their record which eliminates the need to attend traffic school.
Existing law in California previously allowed the court to allow anyone with a traffic violation to attend traffic school to clear their driving record, up to the discretion of the judge. Beginning July 1, 2011, a new law went into affect which severely limits the judge’s ability to grant traffic school to many drivers. TicketKick®, California’s leading resource for traffic ticket defense finds that many people in California in the past have chosen to plead guilty, pay their ticket and attend traffic school to keep their records clean, that is until they realized that they could hire a low cost legal service like TicketKick® to help them fight their ticket. California AB 2499, now in effect, places several restrictions on drivers who wish to attend traffic school, giving even more reason for drivers to contest their traffic ticket.
Up until recently, when drivers with a traffic ticket attended a court approved online or classroom traffic school, the conviction was dismissed from their driving record and did not appear as a ‘point’ against them. Under this new law, attending traffic school for the purpose of maintaining a clean driving record will “result in a designation of the driver’s conviction as confidential, rather than having the complaint dismissed” according to an AB 2499 bill analysis. This means that the driver’s ticket could still be seen by insurance companies or the DMV, viewable as a private violation.
This law will also prohibit drivers who receive more than one violation within an 18 month period to attend traffic school more than once within that period. In the past, many people would get away with attending traffic school for more than one ticket within 18 months because either the judge would allow it, or there would simply be a miscommunication between the courthouses. This new law will put a stop to this, as the courthouses will more communicative about the eligibility of a driver to attend traffic school. It requires the DMV to develop an online database accessible by all courts and by the traffic schools to allow oversight of student enrollments and completions, therefore keeping track of when a driver last attended traffic school. Furthermore, level two (12 hour) traffic school previously provided an opportunity for a driver to attend traffic school more than once during an 18 month period, when granted by the judge. This new law also puts an end to this option. Regardless of the county or courthouse, no driver will be allowed to attend traffic school more than once within 18 months for the purpose of keeping a point off of their driving record.
The number of tickets issued in California each year is estimated by several sources to be in the multi-millions. According to the AB 2499 Analysis, “the TVS (traffic violator school) option assists the operation of the courts by significantly reducing the sheer volume of potential court cases.”
“Simply put, the courts don’t want to deal with millions of trials,” says Greg Muender, President and Founder of TicketKick®. “A lot of people don’t realize that they have the option to contest their ticket through the mail through a trial by written declaration, because the courts don’t generally volunteer that option to people. But it is a very convenient legal procedure in California and we take advantage of it to the benefit of the drivers. Fighting a ticket through a trial by written declaration is an excellent place to start considering most cases are dismissed with our defenses, but even if it’s not, you can still resort to your option of requesting traffic school thereafter.”
If a driver chooses to attend traffic school, they must pay their full ticket fine, pay the court’s traffic school fee, and then pay the traffic school. The fee that the court imposes on a driver to attend traffic school may be increased to cover the fees incurred by a court assistance program (CAP) for monitoring and traffic administration services provided to the court.
A representative of IVES Auto Insurance said that a driver’s rates could be increased as much as 20% if they have two tickets within three years on their record, or for having a suspension due to any unpaid tickets. Mr. Muender of TicketKick® drives the point home: “Many people receive more than one traffic ticket within 18 months, it’s very common, especially with California’s ticketing increases. Our point is: Why use up your traffic school option when you can fight it first? Every ticket has potential to be dismissed, and our defense experts aggressively write defenses for most violations based on every aspect of the law. If you are found guilty, then you can resort to traffic school.”
TicketKick® is a registered Legal Document Assistant in California, providing self help services in traffic ticket defense, with a similar service model to companies such as LegalZoom and E*Trade. TicketKick® works with attorneys in California in developing their defenses, which utilize many different arguments and tactics. TicketKick’s goal is to help people get their traffic tickets dismissed, and although not every customer will win their case, TicketKick® offers a full refund and a free consultation for guilty verdicts.

Washington Personal Injury Lawyer Hails Gains in Traffic Safety, Urges More Action to Prevent Car Accidents
Focus on speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving could accelerate an improving trend in Washingtonâs statewide traffic fatalities, Seattle personal injury attorney Dean Brett says.
Even though Washingtonâs traffic-related deaths dropped to an historic low in 2010, raising public awareness of the dangers of speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving could prevent even more fatalities, Seattle car accident attorney Dean Brett said today.
On March 30, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission announced that the stateâs traffic fatalities dropped from 492 in 2009 to 448 last year, marking the lowest number of crash-related deaths in Washingtonâs history.
âThese numbers show that our roads are safer today than ever before, but thereâs still a lot of work that needs to be done,â said Brett, a founding partner of the personal injury law firm, Brett & Coats, Attorneys at Law, PLLC, which represents car accident victims and their families throughout Seattle, Tacoma, Bellingham and Spokane.
In 2009, the law firm secured a .5 million verdict in a case involving a drunk driving accident, which was the largest jury verdict ever recorded in Skagit County (French v. Parker, et al.; Skagit County Cause No. 08-2-00530-8).
âThat number â 448 â is not so low when you consider that 448 families lost a loved one to a car crash during the past year,â Brett said. âEven the loss of one life to an auto accident that could have been prevented is one too many. Thatâs why our state needs to continue to focus on putting an end to the types of reckless driving that cause accidents, injuries and deaths.â
Brett said the emphasis should be on speeding, distracted driving and drunk driving because they are three of the leading causes of car accident deaths.
Speeding accounted for nearly 40 percent of all Washington traffic fatalities between 2004 and 2008, according to a Washington Traffic Safety Commission study. Drunk driving accounts for nearly one quarter of the stateâs driving fatalities, 2009 state data shows, while distracted driving has become a growing concern due to the growing number of people who talk on cell phones or text while behind the wheel.
âWe need to be aggressive in raising awareness of the dangers of reckless driving, especially in our message to younger drivers,â Brett said. âAnd reckless drivers need to know that they will be held fully accountable for their conduct.â
If a person or their loved one is harmed by a reckless driver, Brett said it is important to contact an experienced Washington car accident attorney in order to discuss their legal options.
âOur law firmâs main concern will always be on promoting safe driving and protecting the rights of innocent victims and their families,â he said.
