How to make a traffic ticket less painful

When you get a ticket for a traffic violation, the bad news keeps on coming. First, there's the fine for the ticket itself. Then comes the increase in insurance premiums, which for some traffic violations can cost thousands of dollars over the long term. For example, a ticket/charge for reckless driving increases premiums by an average of 22 percent. In some states, these rate increases stay in place for up to seven years. Interestingly, SmartMoney recently published a few tips on how to lessen the pain after you've received a citation. Firstly, a spokesperson for the National Motorists Association told the site that drivers should always consider fighting their traffic tickets.

Will New York City install cameras to catch speeders?

New York City may soon be getting more aggressive about catching drivers who commit traffic violations. Drivers in the city already have to contend with cameras set up to catch red-light runners and bus-lane violators.
