What Does Age Have to Do with Traffic Citations in California?

So many Californians think that they won’t get a traffic citation. “Ahhhh, I haven’t had a ticket in over ten years,” you hear many middle-aged folks say. As it turns out, this may not be just luck. According to the graphic below (provided by http://dmv.ca.gov/teenweb), your age may have a lot to do with the likelihood that you will receive a traffic violation, at least compared to those drivers under 20. The ironic part is that teen drivers are just as confident that they will not receive a traffic citation (or maybe they just do not understand the impact a citation will have on their pocketbook and driving record).

Citations by Age Group

Citations by Age Group

The relationship between age, traffic citations and driving behavior has interested highway safety researchers and administrators for many years. It is generally acknowledged that the greatest risk of traffic crashes is among teenage drivers. Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers across the United States. For both men and women, drivers aged 16 to 19 years of age have the highest average annual crash and traffic citation rates of any other age group.

The Unsolicited Client Appreciation of Our Document Filing Service Keeps Coming

It is always so nice to receive notes like the following. As we get these compliments on our traffic ticket document filing service, we will continue to share them with you….

Dear Ticketbust,

I have always been somewhat skeptical when it comes to “money back guarantees”. My level of trust was still active and raw after receiving a speeding ticket, purchasing an $60 Fight your ticket book and then searching the web for information.
I had several replies from scammers in Zimbabwe to people proclaiming to be “experts in the industry of getting rid of tickets”. And the book basically said hire a lawyer or you are scr–ed !!!
Your site seemed honest and straight to the point.
I enlisted your services, someone; “a live person” called me soon after. I followed your instructions to the letter; called to check on “my ticket status” several times. (your staff always pleasant and answered any questions I had).
I have just received my fine amount, bail, back from the local court……which means; I was informed by the nice young lady in your office..(Amanda)…….I WON well you WON on my behalf.
You folks are the BEST……………Thank You Soooooooooooo much
Best to you all at TICKETBUST …and give Amanda, Christina and Steven a raise or at least diner and drinks !!!
Thank you sooo much,
Gary T., El Sobrante Ca.

ticketbust.com Announce New Campaign to Fight Scandalous Websites

Steve Miller, CEO of Ticket Busters of California announces Their Launch of ‘Fight Scandalous Sites’ Campaign

Recently Ticket Busters of California has become victim to a growing revenue scam on the Internet via a popular complaint site. “After investigating our options to rebut the complaint, our staff was astonished to find that there is a growing trend over the Internet of site like these; those allowing anyone to post a negative comment about any business or individual,” explained Steven Miller, CEO for Ticket Busters. With that information, Ticket Busters decided to launch a ‘Fight Scandalous Sites’ Campaign.

Miller goes on to say that, “our staff found limited ways to combat the complaints and other negative comments, other than to pay the site owner to contest the complaint or ‘monitor’ their site for removal of these comments”. While these sites do not charge any fee for the posting of these potentially scandalous comments, they charge the business or individual whom the complaint was lodged against. Also, these sites do not verify the legitimacy of the commandant or make any attempt to verify the legitimacy of the complaint. Ticket Busters found numerous stories from other business owners about postings that turned out to be from competititors or disgruntled ex-employees that were simply trying to bring negative attention to the business.

Ticket Busters of California decided that it was important to bring public awareness to this revenue generating and slanderous practice. In their campaign release, Ticket Busters pleads with the general consumer to, “please be careful not to believe everything you read on the Internet. Here is an example of a very popular complaint site and the lawsuits being brought against the company for allowing anyone to write anything:


“ The campaign goes on to add, “did you know, as an example that a good amount of the activity on these sites are either shakedown artists or complaints initiated by competition? Help us in our efforts at ticketbust.com to put an end to erroneous and misguided complaints by not clicking on the negative postings of these sites in the search engine results. The more clicks they get, the more popular these scandalous sites become. We want to annihilate these scandalous sites from the legitimate listings of Google and other search engines”.

If you would like to discuss your concerns with our CEO directly, please call 800.850.8038 or post a comment here.

About Ticket Busters of California: Ticket Busters (ticketbust.com), located in Westlake Village, California, was founded in 2004 by Steven F. Miller. This service has assisted tens of thousands of Californians with filing the necessary paperwork to dismiss their traffic tickets.

Mr. Miller wanted to create a fully automated and user-friendly online service for California drivers to submit their traffic ticket information and process the necessary documents. Unfortunately, there will always be a small percent of people that are unhappy and are free to post whatever they like, whether it is true or not, on unsavory sites like complaints.com, etc. Of this small percent of our client base, we have found that many of those did not read our Money Back Guarantee Terms and Conditions, which we encourage our website visitors to do throughout the site. We also always strongly encourage clients to give us their feedback directly so that we can work to resolve their issues. In five years, we have processed over 12,000 tickets for our clients and are a member in excellent standing with the Better Business Bureau.

Dear Ticket Busters of California,
I just wanted to let you know I received a court response today on my ticket# T694669. They judged me not guilty and are sending me back my $202 ticket bail.   I don’t know how you did it but thank you. I am very impressed. I suspect we will be talking again in the future, but hopefully not for some time.
Michael W., Orange County

————and this one from Jim in San Diego———–

Dear Steven,
I have received the TR-215 Decision and Notice of Decision.  I am absolutely astonished by the court decision of Dismiss.  The personal check was cashed some time ago, so I thought that it was all over.  Now the clerk of the court has to reimburse me for the check amount.  I just want to say that because of your unique method of articulating the facts; you have proven that your company, The Original Ticket Busters, does do exactly what it is suppose to do.  I am so pleased with the outcome and the fact that my unblemished driving record in California will remain clean.  If there is a recommendation that I may be able to make with respect to the success of your company, please let me know.  So I just want to say thank you very much!

Best regards,
Jim K., San Diego
