Uber Traffic Ticket Discount
The Original California Ticket Dismissal Team Is Here To Help You Beat Your Traffic Ticket!
If you’re an Uber driver, getting a traffic ticket could result in you losing your position with the company. Background checks are run before being hired as a driver, and then once a year for every year you work under the app. The background checks themselves take into account criminal history, as well as run a Motor Vehicle Report.
Depending on where you work as an Uber driver, state laws may disqualify you through the background check for various different reasons. These reasons are not always made known to you beforehand, and may not even be listed on the Uber website, so be sure to look into traffic laws in your area for your own benefit. If the background check finds that you’ve been issued a ticket for any moving violation, your account may be suspended. As such, it’s important to resolve any and all traffic tickets in a timely manner. Most of all, it’s best to get in touch with a person or company that can help get the ticket either discounted or dismissed.
As an Uber driver, it’s up to you to ensure that your car has a valid form of auto insurance, as well as pay for any court summons and/or bails you may be charged with. As a ridesharing employer, Uber itself has insurance to protect itself against traffic charges that may be brought against it, but it’s rare for the company itself to speak out on behalf of a driver.
While working with Uber, a driver is allowed three minor moving violations within a three year period. Used as a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ ruling, a major infraction may result in more than one strike being used up. The background check is in place to ensure no driver infringes upon these rules without making them known to Uber.
At the same time, if you’re issued with a traffic ticket for any reason while working in your capacity as an Uber driver, you’ll have to face challenging and/or paying fines yourself. You may also have to undergo a traffic awareness or retraining course.
However, even knowing all of this, don’t count yourself out of being able to still drive for Uber. There are many ways you can challenge a traffic ticket, and get it discounted or dismissed entirely. But before you do, you’ll need to ensure you’ve taken a few things into account. It can be a big step to take on traffic law, even if you’re an experienced driver, and you should never go into this process blind.
If you’re a driver who already has ‘two strikes’ on their record, in the form of speeding fines or parking tickets, it can be hard to argue against a third traffic ticket being issued to you in a court of law. The judge may feel that the ticket needs to be on record to prove your capability as a driver. However, there are many ways to still successfully contest the ticket if you feel you are ready and able to do so.
So, once you do decide it’s worth it to contest the ticket, to remove it from ever being on your record, be prepared to fight! In doing so you can help your chances of passing a background check, as well as keep your own insurance rates low. Be sure to make this decision as quickly as possible, as Uber could potentially see that a ticket is currently pending on your record, which could hurt your chances of continuing to work for them.
In ensuring you’re able to fight the ticket as planned, you’ll need to know the local traffic laws that apply to your situation. Every single court out there needs to hear that you’re a safe driver, so if you can prove that the reason for your traffic ticket is related to a maneuver you’d never have to otherwise pull off, make sure you’ve got the right clause in law to back you up.
It’s a good idea to think about how the traffic ticket occurred. Was there something in the way? Did something that wasn’t your fault go wrong on the road? Try to provide as much of your own evidence as possible, with photographs and written statements. And double check the ticket itself – it may have inaccurate evidence on it.
