Stress, fatigue, other factors cause six percent increase in road fatalities on tax day

If asked to name the days in which Americans are most likely to violate vehicle traffic laws or become involved in a fatal car crash, many people would likely cite the Super Bowl -- because of increased alcohol consumption -- Thanksgiving -- because of increased traffic on the road -- or Christmas -- because of increased chances of inclement weather.

Court workers refuse to let man pay $160 speeding ticket with spare change

Many people who feel as if they have been unjustly issued parking tickets or speeding tickets elect to lodge some sort of informal protest designed to show the state or local government how they truly feel. Sometimes this takes the form of mailing a nasty letter with the ticket and payment, voicing their frustrations directly to a government official or simply refusing to pay the ticket altogether.

Safety group says NYPD not doing enough to combat speeding

Over the past year, the Department of Transportation has been making a concerted effort to crack down on certain dangerous and illegal driving practices by New Yorkers, including texting while driving, drunk driving and even driving with tinted windows. To date, these enforcement efforts have been successful, very likely contributing to the record low in traffic fatalities reached in 2011. However, some safety advocates are now arguing that these stepped up enforcement efforts have somehow managed to overlook a major cause of many serious and fatal accidents -- speeding.

Once, twice, three times a speeding ticket for one driver

It's happened to quite a few of us. You have to jump behind the wheel of your car and rush to work, school, the airport or a doctor's appointment because you were either late getting up or simply lost track of time. However, if you tried a little too hard to make up for lost time while navigating roads and freeways, you may have found yourself in the crosshairs of a law enforcement official who is more than willing to give you a speeding ticket.

List ranks NYC No. 1 for speed traps

Last fall, our blog reported on a list released by The National Motorists Association (NMA) -- a nonprofit organization "dedicated to ... stopping the use of traffic tickets to generate revenue" -- ranking the U.S. cities with the highest number of so-called speeding traps.

In vehicle traffic law news, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority has released official figures on the number of cars and trucks using their thoroughfare following a rather significant toll increase in January. Not surprisingly, they show that many motorists may be seeking alternative routes.

DMV typo causes accidental license suspension

There is no question that a suspended license can prove to be a major obstacle in a person's life. Not only will they have to attempt to apply for a restricted or conditional license, they will also have to adjust their schedules (i.e. driving to work, school, etc.) and face increased insurance premiums.

Investigation shows some motorists going to new extreme to avoid tickets

Many motorists here in New York City are very familiar with the steep fines associated with certain types of traffic violations. As such, they will often look for any advantage they can get to help reduce the likelihood that they will have to dole out hundreds of dollars to government officials in the event they make a simple mistake.
