Speeding Tickets what are the Odds

Red cars attract the most attention on the road. Red sports cars are like a Matador’s cape to a bull. While we all like to floor it on an open stretch of road, you reduce your chances of having that much fun, and not getting ticketed when driving a red car. The odds of getting a speeding ticket in the US are about 1 in 20. That’s an average number, and isn’t designated by make, or color of the car. Revenue from speeding tickets accounts for approximately 6 billion (with a B) dollars a year. It’s big (with a B) business, and that’s life in the fast lane. Please visit our website

It can be especially tempting to speed when stuck behind a slow moving vehicle carrying a big load. With all the new construction taking place, large trucks hauling gantry cranes have been slowing traffic on our roadway system lately. Passing these vehicles and their pilot car is tricky and can easily result in a speeding ticket.Traffic Law Attorney

One of my first cars was a red Austin-Healey 3000 MKII. I lived in the hilly township just outside of town and I loved to mess with the country cops. I don’t suggest doing anything unlawful, and always drive safe, but it’s impossible to hold it in, all the time, on back country roads driving a little red sports car. When motoring home late into the evening I often noticed a cop sitting in a treed cut-out along the side of a particular road. The terrain was hilly and this is where the fun would come in. Knowing he was there I’d drop my speed to about 5 mph over the limit. Sure enough he would pull out and begin to follow me. As I crested a hill and dropped out of sight I’d gun it and tear up the next quarter mile before he had a chance to crest the hill. I would immediately slow down to the speed limit once I was in his radar again. This would go on for several miles and I never got tickets. He knew I was messing with him, but didn’t have anything on me. It was just a little bit of harmless fun.Traffic tickets

In the real world, here are 9 ways to avoid getting a speeding ticket.

1. As stealthy as I was, don’t speed if you are the only car on the road.
2. Stay in the middle of the traffic. If other cars around you are speeding you won’t be singled out.
3. Don’t use the far left lane except for passing, and then move right back into the middle or right lanes.
4. Avoid weaving in and out like you’re on a track.
5. If following another speeder – a “rabbit”, let him be the first to show up on the radar and use his brake lights to signal you when he spots a cop.
6. Staying under 10mph over the stated speed limit will usually give you a pass. Anything at 8 or more miles per hour over, and it’s going to get attention – and you’re going to get a ticket.
7. If you can bear to trade in your re-conditioned Super Sport for a Toyota sedan you are less likely to be targeted.
8. Get a radar detector. Not all states allow them so check this out first.
9. Drive responsibly. This goes without saying, but never put you or others at risk.Attorneys

So you can add to the 6 billion dollar revenue generated by speeders across the land, or you can pick your times, and places wisely and avoid the fine. With the average ticket cost being $150 and the increase in insurance you would be smart to keep the pedal from pressing the metal whenever you’re in the car.

Leave me a comment below. What do you think is a “safe” way to speed and get away with it?

Why is Invisalign preferred

Why is Invisalign preferred over braces by most orthodontic candidates?

Everyone out there wants a perfect, beautiful smile with a set of pearly white teeth.
However, not everyone is naturally blessed with a set of teeth that are present in their ideal positions. This is a problem that can easily be fixed with orthodontic treatment. All orthodontics involves moving teeth through pressure and friction. The differences evolve when you look at the method of movement.Orthodontists

There are many different types of orthodontic braces, the most common types being traditional braces and Invisalign. There are many differences between Invisalign and traditional braces. Some of these differences include: aesthetics, comfort, care, and maintenance.

Aesthetics is one of the most obvious places where Invisalign wins over traditionalbraces for teeth. Invisalign is a set of custom made aligners that are created for you and only you. Invisalign uses these medical grade plastic aligners and tooth colored attachments which are used to create pressure in different ways to achieve different movements. Over the course of treatment, you will be supplied with a series of these custom made aligners. Each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, a process that is mapped out in advance by Dr. Saba for your situation. When the aligners are placed on the teeth, they cause the teeth to gradually shift from their current position. After approximately two weeks, you will begin using the next set of aligners, which will continue the teeth straightening process. One of Dr. Saba’s patients told us that her husband “didn’t even notice she was wearing the aligners for several weeks”. However; traditional braces, whether ceramic or metal, are brackets that are cemented to each tooth and have a wire running through them. Even with Ceramic braces where the brackets are clear, the wire makes the presence of braces quite obvious.invisalign clear braces

Invisalign aligners have smooth, comfortable edges and do not cause tissue irritation. However, Traditional braces can be painful due to the sharp or pointy edges of the brackets or wires. Bracket wax is often recommended to avoid sores or cuts on the inside of the cheeks or lips but patients still suffer when eating since the wax does not stay on the bracket.

The biggest issue with traditional braces is the hygiene. Traditional braces as mentioned earlier are cemented to the teeth and cannot be removed. Therefore they require a lot more home care. Since there is a wire going across from one bracket to another, the patient cannot floss normally and requires a floss threader to get under the metal wire. Another oral hygiene issue with traditional braces is that a lot of food and calculus builds up around the brackets and teeth which cause gum disease and there is a risk of decalcification, so at home fluoride regimen is recommended to help prevent this. Also traditional braces require a limited diet to avoid accidentally dislodging a bracket. Invisalign in other hand can be removed for eating or drinking. Therefore there is no change in keeping your oral hygiene. Traditional braces do change your life style and smile; however, with Invisalign you can keep the same life style, diet and smile; only getting a more beautiful smile.Orthodontics

There are many differences between traditional braces and Invisalign. As you can see, Invisalign is an amazing option to straighten your teeth with less hassle.
