How to avoid getting a traffic ticket

It is a well known saying that everyone will get pulled over at some point in their life while driving a car. While that may or may not be the case, the experienced traffic ticket lawyers at The Coquat Law Firm and Traffic Ticket San Antonio can help you avoid getting a traffic ticket if you do get pulled over.

Tips to avoid getting a traffic ticket.

The most important thing to know in working to avoid getting a traffic ticket is to follow the law. Do not speed. Do not follow to closely. Follow every traffic sign accordingly. But sometimes this isn’t enough. Things happen. You’re running late, or a child is screaming in the back seat and next thing you know you are looking at flashing lights in your rear view mirror. The best ways to avoid getting a traffic ticket when you are pulled over is to be polite, courteous, and respectful to the officer. Whether they were correct in pulling you over or not. The goal at this point it to make sure you avoid getting a traffic ticket or get as small of a traffic ticket citation as possible.

When you first see the officer behind you make sure you safely remove your vehicle from the road. Don’t swerve across multiple lanes or slam on your brakes, but make sure you get off the road quickly. This includes making sure your vehicle is as far from the road as realistic and safely possible. Once you have stopped. Turn your engine off and place your keys on the dashboard before leaving your hands on the steering wheel. This will show the officer that you are not a threat to be driving off and will put the officer more at ease as they approach your car. Depending on the time of day it may be a good idea to turn on your interior cabin light. Don’t reach for any information in your wallet/purse or glove box until the officer asks you for the info. Always address the officer as yes sir/no sir or yes ma’am/no ma’am.

What if you can’t avoid getting a traffic ticket?

If you end up with a traffic ticket or traffic citation, at least you followed our tips to avoid getting a traffic ticket and made sure the officer gave you the smallest traffic citation right?

First Speeding Arrest

The First Speeding Arrest in the United States happened just over one hundred and fifteen years ago.

The History of the First Speeding Arrest.

On May 20th, 1899 Jacob German received the dubious honor of being the first man pulled over and arrested for speeding. He was going 12 miles per hour. The police officer that caught him was on a bicycle.

To the police officer’s credit Jacob German’s blistering speed of 12 miles per hour was more than one hundred and fifty percent over the legal speed limit of 8 miles per hour.

For more information on the First Speeding Arrest, be sure to read this article on Gizmodo.

What has changed since First Speeding Arrest?

Despite the humor in an individual getting pulled over and arrested for going 12 miles per hour in the First Speeding Arrest, there is a lot to take away from the First Speeding Arrest.

Since the First Speeding Arrest just over one hundred and fifteen years ago a lot of things have changed. The First Speeding Arrest actually occurred at a point in time when there were more electric cars on the road than gasoline cars. Now speed limits are much higher than they used to be. People are also less likely to be arrested for speeding now than they were in 1899.

School Bus Camera Tickets

New School Bus Camera Tickets might start showing up in your mail box, if a new San Antonio ordinance is passed.

What you need to know about new School Bus Camera Tickets.

Our sister site Traffic Ticket San Marcos recently wrote about School Bus Camera Tickets in San Marcos, but it seems that San Antonio might not be far behind. 

As KSAT 12 notes in their article about School Bus Camera Tickets:

Right now, a number of districts are operating pilot programs with the cameras in place, including Northeast, Judson, South San Antonio, East Central, Boerne, Comal and New Braunfels, as well as Pre-K for SA.

If the new San Antonio ordinance is passed you could be getting School Bus Camera Tickets that are more than $300 if you illegally pass a school bus when it is stopped.

Remember when a school bus is stopped and has flashing lights, it means that children are getting on or off the bus. Their safety is the reason it is illegal to pass a school bus when it is stopped like that. This means you have to stop even if you are on the other side of thh street heading the other direction. The only time you do not need to stop for a school bus with flashing lights is when there is a physical barrier between the heading one side of the road and the other.

How to fight School Bus Camera Tickets.

KSAT 12 even interviewed out very own Justin Coquat about the civil penalties of School Bus Camera Tickets:

‘I typically advise my clients not to pay,’ Coquat said.

It is important to remember that civil School Bus Camera Tickets are different from criminal tickets you get from a cop.

At The Coquat Law Firm our top concern is making sure that children can safely enter and exit a school bus. But this doesn’t mean that we can’t defend you if you find yourself with School Bus Camera Tickets. Our trained traffic ticket lawyers handle thousands of citations every single year. You don’t have to fight your citations alone! Call 210-745-2835 today!!
