Most Commonly Disputed Traffic Tickets

Traffic tickets can be a financial burden for many people. However, finances are just part of the problem when one considers the demerit points and sometimes legalities associated with several types of these tickets. Understandably, many people seek the opportunity to either lessen the fine or have them dismissed altogether.

Most traffic tickets fall under two categories and they are moving violations and non-moving violations. Although some moving violations carry serious charges, possibility of jail time, and a significant hike in insurance premiums; some of the most disputed traffic tickets for moving infractions/violations include:

• Driving at a speed of 40 mph or more over the posted speed limit
Driving under the influence (DUI)
• Running a stop sign or red light
• Driving on a suspended or revoked license
• Not stopping for a school bus or pedestrian
• Making an illegal u-turn
• Passing another vehicle illegally
• Driving in a carpool lane illegally
• Failure to yield the right of way
• Reckless driving
• Drag racing

The commonly disputed traffic tickets for non-moving violations include:

• Illegally parking in a handicapped space
• Driving with expired registration tags
• Parking in front of an expired meter
• Headlights or taillights not working
• Parking in front of a fire hydrant
• Illegal lights installed on vehicle
• Leaving the scene of an accident
• Parking in a no-parking zone
• Window tint is too dark
• Blocking the sidewalk
• Cracked windshield
• Double Parking
• No license plate.
