As Los Angeles has struggled to keep speed limits current on major streets, there has been a 77% drop in the number of speeding tickets written annually by the LAPD, a Times analysis has found.
Do law enforcement officers feel it’s too much to write tickets for this violation, or whether they don’t have the resources to write these tickets? Bailey suggested that volunteers could write tickets for missing front plates, and he questioned whether the state should just eliminate this requirement entirely.
An initiative that would reverse a law that allows immigrants residing in California illegally to obtain driver's licenses has been cleared to begin gathering signatures for the 2020 ballot.

California has by far the highest number of electric cars of any U.S. state, so it's not surprising that it continues to spend aggressively on supporting infrastructure. Three California utilities, Pacific Gas & Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Southern California Edison will spend a combined $768 million on electric-car infrastructure.
California cars will soon be spotted with digital license plates as part of a pilot project.
The Sacramento Bee reports that the state Department of Motor Vehicles is teaming up with the digital plates’ maker, Reviver Auto, to begin marketing them for sale at auto dealerships.

California’s highways, roads, dams and bridges are in bad shape and getting worse, and the six leading candidates to become the state’s next governor all agree that something must be done.
But that unusual show of political unity quickly comes apart when the question turns to what, exactly, needs to be done and how to go about it.
The two top Republicans in the race, Orange County Assemblyman Travis Allen and businessman John Cox, want to do more with less. The state already has enough money to fix California’s deteriorating infrastructure without any new taxes, they argue, if state officials would only keep a tighter rein on spending.
RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CA — As tens of thousands of extra drivers hit Interstate 10 from the Coachella Valley on Monday, traffic is again expected to be increasingly heavy throughout the day.

A recent study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that drivers believe distracted driving is a growing epidemic and one of the greatest dangers facing motorists today.
“We have to find new ways to remind people to keep their eyes on the road, not on their phones,” said Mike Blasky, spokesman for AAA. “People know this is a dangerous behavior, but many of them do it anyway."
Traffic got you down? Are you longing for the open road?
A new study by the fleet management company Geotab might offer some guidance. The company culled the least-traveled roads across the country, ranking them on both their scenic appeal — as judged by nature photographer James “Q” Martin — and the number of cars that travel them annually.

California safety officials are cautiously cheering what they say may be the start of a trend toward less distracted driving.
The vast majority of public transit agencies across Southern California, from modest municipal carriers to the West Coast's largest bus system, have watched their ridership numbers fall off a cliff over the last five years.

The new ID card was mandated as part of the REAL ID Act of 2005 and passed in response to 9/11 that created new security standards for states driver’s licenses and IDs.
Today, more than at any time, California has an opportunity to continue its leadership in building a fair society. So far, it has missed the mark on an issue that significantly affects more than 4 million residents: traffic fines and fees.
Starting January 22, all driver's licenses in California will sport a new look.
Most importantly for travelers, you will now be given the option when renewing to get a standard ID or one that is REAL ID compliant- which means that they can be used at airport security for the foreseeable future.

Are you like everybody else seeing everything go up except wages? Can I mention the price of food, clothing, medical and let’s not forget gasoline or housing?
Fortunately, Cousin Neil was driving on Overland between Washington and Venice Blvd when the red-light camera device caught my eye; as I drove past the multistoried construction project being built on the East side of Overland. You guessed right if you said, “Isn’t that in the City of Los Angeles? And you would be correct. Everyone who received a ticket at Overland and Washington should go to the City Hall and ask respectfully for their $600 or so bucks back, as well as, a letter to their auto insurance company, thus preventing their rates going up.
Police have issued thousands fewer traffic tickets to drivers in San Francisco in recent years, despite a citywide push to ticket drivers who exhibit the most dangerous driving behaviors, according to a review of publicly available data by the San Francisco Examiner.
The San Francisco Police Department is fulfilling its promise to issue tickets to drivers for certain behaviors like speeding as part of The City’s traffic safety effort Vision Zero, but publicly available traffic ticket data shows tickets of other traffic offenses have dropped precipitously.
For decades, traffic-clogged Interstate 80 has been the only Bay Area freeway to require that vehicles contain at least three people to legally enter the carpool lane. But it could lose that distinction.
Bicycle citations are treated the same as driving tickets by the courts. The fines are the same. For example, a stop sign violation can cost $200 and running a red light costs as much as $400. If you don’t pay them, the consequences could lead to garnishing wages or jail time.
Drivers around the Bay Area and throughout California have only today and tomorrow to fill up before the gas tax takes a big jump. The state’s gas tax will go up 12 cents a gallon Wednesday.

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Police Department announced Saturday that officers will step up pedestrian safety enforcement operations.
LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Teenagers are considered at greatest risk for distracted driving, and collisions are the number one killer of teens in the United States.
To address these concerns, the California Highway Patrol and Impact Teen Drivers, or ITD, are joining forces to help eliminate these preventable collisions.
Ten percent of all drivers aged 15 to 19 involved in fatal collisions were reported as distracted at the time.
Motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death for teenagers, ahead of all other types of injury, disease, or violence. To bring awareness to this epidemic and reduce the number of lives lost, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) recognizes National Teen Driver Safety Week, Oct. 15-21.
Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a measure Saturday that would have forced tougher restrictions on young California drivers.
Tourists in San Francisco last week received an eye-opening experience when it comes to distractions while driving.

The majority of California cities that have tried red light cameras have dropped them, but not Solana Beach. The San Diego suburb's city council skipped public discussion and unanimously voted to renew its photo ticketing deal with Redflex Traffic Systems. Experts reviewing the deal found it made little sense on a financial or safety basis.
"Based on our analysis, the city of Solana Beach's red light camera program appears to have had no positive effect on traffic safety in the city, even after more than a decade of enforcement and the issuance of over 25,000 tickets," Safer Streets LA executive director Jay Beeber explained. "Further, it appears that the cameras were installed in locations that did not have a prior red light running collision problem. While the implementation of this program was likely well intended by those who initiated it, the program has not achieved the intended results."
Want your city to fix its traffic issues? It should start by narrowing streets and planting trees where cars currently drive.
Under state law, it is illegal to step into a crosswalk while the countdown timer is counting-down, even if the timer shows that you have plenty of time to make it across the street before the traffic light turns red. Start crossing when the timer is counting down, and a scrupulous police officer may cite you to the tune of $197.
With state-licensed marijuana sales months away, Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed a bill that prohibits smoking or consuming cannabis while driving or riding in a vehicle in California.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed a historic law this summer ending driver license suspensions for failure to pay traffic fines. Going forward, license suspensions are more likely to be about traffic safety than punishing people for not having money. Thousands of Californians will no longer risk losing their jobs for lack of a driver’s license.
The penalties for minor driving violations are becoming harsher across America. If you veer into a bike lane, the offense could cost you hundreds of dollars in some states, for example. Yet those fines are light compared to major offenses, such as the cost of a DUI. Serious driving offenses hurt you in a number of ways. In addition to the actual fine and related court costs, you could end up losing thousands more due to a suspended or revoked license. And even a minor traffic ticket could end up costing you your license and nearly hundreds in fees if you don’t pay right away.
The California Office of Traffic Safety is again announcing that September is “California Pedestrian Safety Month” which began last year in response to the rising number of pedestrians being killed and injured on California roadways.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California and Electronic Frontier Foundation won a lawsuit Thursday that will require the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to fulfill their request for one week's worth of data from their automatic license plate readers (ALPR).

The former lawmaker who authored California's first cell phone driving laws believes weak penalties are to blame for drivers' willingness to defy the rules
In a perfect world — perhaps the not-too-distant world of driverless cars — we would not have to write this editorial. But few things are more imperfect than late-for-work parents rushing to drop their kids off at school, teens speeding to classes to avoid a first-period tardy, distracted drivers or pedestrians checking their text messages in the morning, or any motorist or walker or bicyclist just not paying attention to and from and around school.
Jesse Austin, a 39-year-old Antioch resident, owed more than $1,800 in unpaid tickets stemming from a traffic stop last September in Benicia. He couldn’t pay that high an amount on the $800 he earned every two weeks at a store that sold men’s grooming products.

It goes without saying that around the Motor1 office, street racing is looked upon with the same measure of stupidity as a using superglue for sunscreen. It’s not as if this activity just suddenly sprung up out of thin air – people have been street racing in some form or another since the second car was built. It’s never good, but sometimes you just have to wonder what the hell some of these people are thinking.
California has a host of public policy issues that the state government hasn’t done a good job addressing. But when it comes to criminal justice reform, the state has seen considerable progress in recent years, thanks to Gov. Jerry Brown and the state lawmakers who have figured out how counterproductive it is to impose punishments that have the effect of upending people’s lives.
Californians will no longer face losing their driver's licenses because of unpaid traffic fines starting next month. Gov. Jerry Brown said the punishment doesn't help the state collect unpaid fines and can send low-income people into a cycle of job losses and more poverty.

The California Legislature is considering a proposal to link the cost of a traffic ticket to a person’s ability to pay. Supporters say if it becomes law, it will keep minor traffic violations from pushing low-income California drivers deep into debt. And, it could help the state recoup tens of millions of dollars in delinquent fines that people just can’t afford to pay.

As summer kicks off and families hit the road for vacations, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the California Office of Traffic Safety is reminding motorists to Click It or Ticket.
California is well known for its traffic tickets! Approximately 5 million are issued each year and not very many are ever contested.

Don't let a traffic ticket destroy your life, especially when it's so simple to fight!
The more than 4 million traffic tickets handed out to Californians each year for such infractions as speeding, failing to stop at a red light or failing to signal before changing lanes should no longer be criminal charges, but instead, be handled in civil court, says California’s top judge.
