Hempstead, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Recent reports by travel analyists at Forbes.com projected that American’s will be more apt to travel this spring and summer over last year. While the Forbes article offers suggestions for safe travel, and advice on vacation planning, Nassau County attorneys, Hirsch and Hirsch offers travelers sound advice on avoiding traffic violations during their road trip.
Below, Hirsch and Hirsch list the most common traffic violations traveling motorists incur, with advice on how to prevent them:
Uninspected/unregistered vehicles – If you’re planning a roadtrip, making sure your car is inspected and registered should be a priority in planning your trip. Failure to register a vehicle can lead to expensive fines, and traveling without an inspection could mean fines, and car trouble .
Red light cameras – Traveling in an unfamiliar area or state increases the risk for red light camera violations. Depending on the states one travels through, rules and violations regarding “right on red” may vary. Take time to research traffic laws if traveling state to state, it may save you money, and points on your license.
Headlights/signals – Some states have serious penalties for changing lanes without signaling. Always using your signals will not only protect you from a potential accident, but will reduce the risk of a moving violation. Headlights should be turned on at dusk, and always used if wipers are on during inclement weather.
Avoid using cell phones – Make sure to use a hands-free device if cell phone use is unavoidable, and always use a proper dashboard mount while in a phone is in GPS mode. Most states have a zero tolerance for cell phone use while driving. Following the rules will protect drivers and reduce the risk of expensive fines.
