Speeding Brings Costly Consequences

Most drivers will receive at least a traffic ticket during their years of driving. Every point added and accumulated to our driving record could results in our license being suspended.

As the weather improves, many of us are just looking forward to take our car out from the garage and take a drive to town to stock up our groceries or a ride down the country road to enjoy the beautiful scenery.  There are many who are also thinking the same thing like us. Winter months can be so boring and the snow has kept us indoors as it is not safe to drive on slippery roads.

 

Driving is fun especially when there is not traffic congestion and when the weather is nice and cool. It can be exhilarating to see the first sign of spring with little spots of green appearing out from under the bare ground and on the bare trees. There is no rush to get anywhere and it is good to feel the cool fresh air through the open windows of our car.

Once the initial thrill of the first few drives along the country roads evaporates, we can find ourselves rushing to our destination and getting our errands done. The everyday routine sets in and people are more interested in getting about on time and getting things done as soon as possible. The moment we get our car started, we automatically step on the gas accelerator pedal. No one wants to get stuck in a traffic congestion and everyone wants to be early to avoid being caught in one. Sometimes, rushing or speeding does not help but instead would slow us down, especially if you are being stopped by a traffic officer for beating the red traffic light.

 

Not only will our time be wasted but it will also burn a hole in our wallet to pay for the ticket received. It is not just paying the ticket, but it will also affect the record of our driving license with demerit points added. In order to keep a good driving record we need to out the demerit points and the only way is to hire a red light camera ticket lawyer to fight our case for us.

What happens if you have just received a red light ticket? If you are staying in California, you will have no problem getting a good recommendation to a ticket attorney Los Angeles from The Ticket Clinic. This clinic provides legal advice and services to motorists to get a fair trial and most times, the experienced lawyers can get the cases dismissed using their defense strategies and tactics with high percentage of successes.

Most drivers will receive at least a traffic ticket during their years of driving. Every point added and accumulated to our driving record could results in our license being suspended. When this happens, it could cause the premium of our auto insurance to increase. In certain states, demerit points for minor violations will stay in our driving records for a minimum of 3 years. If one is a frequent speeder, one can easily reach the number of points to get his or her license suspended and that would not be good if the job requires a driving license.

Americans Prefer Driving By Themselves Than An Autonomous Vehicle Drive Them

Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, from Washington University have revealed that people in the US would rather drive themselves than have an autonomous vehicle drive them.

Many Americans use a ride-hailing service — like Uber or Lyft — to get to and from work. It provides the privacy of riding in a personal car and the convenience of catching up on emails or social media during traffic jams.

In the future, self-driving vehicles could provide the same service, except without a human driver.

“The average person in our sample would find riding in a driverless car to be more burdensome than driving themselves. This highlights the risks of making forecasts based on how people say they would respond to driverless cars today,” said study senior author Don MacKenzie.

For the findings published in the journal Transportation, the research team studied how Americans’ perceived cost of commute time changes depending on who’s driving.

Through a survey, the team found that people considered a ride-hailing service at least 13 per cent “less expensive,” in terms of time, compared to driving themselves.

If the researchers told people the ride-hailing service was driverless, however, then the cost of travel time increased to 15 per cent more than driving a personal car, suggesting that at least for now, people would rather drive themselves than have an autonomous vehicle drive them.

During the survey, the research team asked people across the continental US to select between a personal car or a ride-hailing service for a 15-mile commute trip.

Half the 502 respondents were told that the ride-hailing service was driverless.

The researchers converted the responses to a score of how much respondents deemed that trip would cost per hour.

“If someone values their trip time at $15 per hour, that means they dislike an hour spent travelling as much as they dislike giving up $15, so a lower number means that the time spent travelling for that trip is less burdensome,” said study co-author and Indian-origin researcher Andisheh Ranjbari.

According to the researchers, driverless cars aren’t commercially available yet, so people are not familiar with them or may be leery of the technology. (IANS)
