Now, there are some traffic tickets that you are going to get that you can do nothing about. These are the ones that kind of sneak up on you. However, you would be shocked to know that most of us can learn how to fight a traffic ticket just by using a little common scese. Today we are going to talk about a few things to look for so that you can avoid traffic tickets and not have to spend your hard earned cash buying one of those radar detectors.
First of all, you need to learn the location of the traffic cameras in your area. Not all areas have them, but you can easily spot them at intersections if they are in your area. The best way to do this is to look at an intersection whenever you are stopped at a red light. Check all around and see if you can spot a camera. If you do not spot one, then you know that the area you are in is safe. Over time you will be able to go through all the intersections in your area, and you will be able to know which ones are lookout spots and which ones are not. If you come up on an intersection that you do not know about, simply slow down going through it until you can figure out if it has a camera there or not. To be on the safe side, never try and look for these cameras when going through the intersection. Only look for them when you are stopped. Once again, taking your eyes off the road to check the lights for cameras is not using your brain.
Next on the list of things to look out for are hidden cops. Now, if you are from an area, you normally have a good idea of where cops hang out at, thus, it would be a bad idea to go speeding through there. If you are on the highway, it can be harder to know where the cops could be located. Although it's impossible to learn all of their spots, there are a few that you need to look out for. One thing that cops love to do is sit on exit ramps. They sit on the ones that lead onto the highway. That way you can not see them as you are coming up on them. By the time you know that they are there, it is too late. So as you come up on exits, slow down when you are coming up to the spot where people are getting on the highway, take a quick look to see if a cop is hiding out there.
