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

We'll Help you Fight Any California Speeding Ticket, Red Light Ticket or Other Traffic Ticket!

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).

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.
