Police officer gives motorist a welcome surprise inside traffic ticket

When a 25-year-old Texas man was recently pulled over by a police officer for a routine traffic violation, he got much more than he bargained for -- but in a good way. It all started when the police officer pulled Hayden C. over for an expired registration sticker. When asked by the police officer why his registration had expired, Hayden C. simply said he had no excuse. "I said 'there's no explanation for why I haven't done it, except I don't have the money,' Hayden C. recently told a local television station. "I said 'it was either feed my kids or get my registration done.'"

Highway safety director with history of traffic violations loses job

You might not be shocked to learn that directors of states' Highway Safety Divisions have a traffic violation or two on their records. But how about 34 entries? As surprising as that may seem, that's exactly what the Boston Globe recently discovered on the record of the director of the Massachusetts Highway Safety Division.

Report shows that school bus drivers in major U.S. city are speeding, running red lights

Every morning thousands of parents here in New York and across the country drop their children off at the local school bus stop, trusting that the bus driver will transport their precious cargo to school safely. While this is exactly what happens the overwhelming majority of the time, there are unfortunate exceptions.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia gets two parking tickets

While it's certainly a hassle to get a ticket for parking or a traffic violation, maybe there's some small consolation in knowing that those in positions of power aren't immune to them either. Such was the case recently when Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia received not one, but two tickets in Philadelphia.

Update: Speed cameras continuing to plague D.C. drivers

Last week, our blog discussed how the nation's capital saw a rather large profit this past fiscal year -- $84.9 million to be exact -- thanks to so-called traffic camera enforcement, meaning both red light cameras and speed cameras. However, we also discussed how area motorists were less than thrilled with this trend, calling it nothing more than a backdoor commuter tax designed to generate revenue for the cash-strapped city.

Police in major U.S. city now held accountable for their red-light violations

It often seems like everyone has their own story of watching a police officer blow through a stop light even though there is no apparent emergency. In fact, this traffic violation often goes unpunished, with officers able to dismiss tickets issued by red light cameras that catch them red-handed. But at least one major American city is seeking to put an end to this practice. City police officers in Denver will now be forced to follow the same traffic laws as ordinary citizens, even when it comes to running a red light. Specifically, police officers will be forced to either challenge the traffic violation or pay the fine. The new rule replaces a prior policy that essentially exempted officers from paying traffic violations. Here, they would receive an oral reprimand after the third offense, followed by a written reprimand on the fourth offense.

Did a film company post fake 'no parking' signs in Astoria?

One of the realities of living in a city the size of New York is that you are bound to encounter a television or film crew shooting scenes on a public street sooner or later. Sometimes this can prove to be a real thrill and provide a much-appreciated look at life behind-the-scenes. Other times it can prove to be a real nightmare, tying up traffic and temporarily eliminating entire blocks of valuable parking spots.

Look very closely the next time you get a parking ticket here in NYC

Of all the traffic violations that you could be issued here in New York City -- speeding, red light summonses, failure to yield, etc. -- none are perhaps as frustrating as parking tickets. When you see that colored envelope tucked beneath the windshield wiper of your car, your first reaction is probably to utter an otherwise unprintable sequence of words and crumple the ticket in anger.

How was a college student ticketed for running a red light while in police custody?

Is it possible to be two places at once? According to the rules of science -- and the rules of common sense -- the answer to that question is, of course, no. However, it appears that the New York Police Department may think otherwise as it somehow managed to issue a traffic violation to a college student who was behind bars at the same time he allegedly ran a red light.
