Santa Barbara Ticket Help

So you got a traffic ticket in Santa Barbara County. Welcome to the club. You probably don’t know it, but your ticket is just one of over 5,000,000 tickets written every year in California. And, of that huge number, only a small percentage will ever be contested.

Sure, you’re angry at the officer for pulling you over and you’re annoyed at yourself for doing whatever it is the officer pulled you over for in the first place. And, of course, you’re plenty mad about all of the time and money this ticket is going to cost you. But the real question is what are you going to do about it?

Well, what if there was a better way to fight your traffic ticket in California. What if there were a system that provided drivers all of their exact same rights under the law to contest a traffic ticket, but also did not cost you precious time and money? Wouldn’t that be great? Well, we have good news for you. There is such a system, and it’s called a “Trial by Written Declaration.”

Common Santa Barbara Traffic Tickets

Speeding Tickets

The lights are flashing, the siren is blaring and you just handed the traffic officer your license, registration and proof of insurance. All because you were driving over the speed limit. Again! It doesn’t feel great does it? Don’t despair though, getting caught is always a wakeup call but the good news is that fighting a speeding ticket is not too difficult under the right circumstances.

Red Light Tickets

Fighting a red light ticket may be easier than you’d ever think! But first, you’ll want to make double sure that all of the information reflected on the ticket is actually accurate. Unfortunately, with the rise of fraud and identity theft, there have been some cases of con-artists mailing out falsified tickets. Check your name, address and vehicle information closely for anything that seems missing or incorrect. Once you’re sure it is a legitimate document, you can begin to examine various forms of defense and move forward with contesting a red light ticket.

Cell Phone Tickets

We all know the feeling. You’re multi-tasking your way through a busy morning and you quickly use your cell phone while you’re behind the wheel of a car. Suddenly highway patrol magically appears out of nowhere, pulls you over and slaps you with a cell phone ticket. As you watch them drive away it’s easy to give in to the despair and just pay up. However, fighting a cell phone ticket is actually a little simpler than you may think, especially if you’ve done a few key things correctly.
