Debunking Traffic Ticket Myths

police officerDebunking the many traffic ticket myths you have heard over the years could very well mean the difference between getting a $250 fine and being let off with a mere warning.

Let’s face it. Debunking these myths can go a long in way in helping you avoid a ticket, but the best way to do that is to obey the traffic laws!
