3 Tips To Help You Avoid Unnecessary Fines


Sometimes, no matter how well behaved we are, we might find ourselves falling to a necessary fine. For instance, it might be that you’ve parked too long in a parking space and have been caught out fair and square by a local warden. Perhaps you’ve been picked up for littering after enjoying a picnic with a few friends. Of course, some of these are genuine mistakes and we can’t complain about them.


That said, this doesn’t mean you should never appeal a decision should you fall victim to an unnecessary fine. Even those who are pretty shrewd may have this happen to them once in a while. This is why it’s important to prepare in advance, to understand your rights, to document your actions, and to understand exactly what a fine is given for.


In this post, we’ll discuss a few measures you can use to help you avoid unnecessary fines as necessary. With a few investments and behaviors, you may be able to dismiss fines that you may otherwise be forced to pay. With that in mind, please consider:


Get A Dashcam


A dashcam placed on the dashboard of your vehicle can help you record your driving behaviors every single day, while also being able to document the traffic behavior of cars in front of you. This means you can easily prove that you hadn’t run that red light, or that you weren’t at fault if experiencing an accident, or that your misturn was an accident and because the sign designating a certain direction was shielded from your view. A minor investment like this can help you get out of improper traffic violations and continues to do that for hundreds of people daily.


Know Your Rights


Knowing your rights can be a helpful means of challenging decisions against you or preventing others from taking advantage. For instance, it might be that a company tries to convince you that a late-charging fee is a formality given your subscription dates, despite the fact that service wasn’t provided until after it was promised. Being able to press an issue in this way, and flex your consumer rights, or threaten to leave a given service due to this can help you gain more tactful understanding of how to defend yourself against assumed financial obligations.


Appeal Decisions


Many fines will have an appeals process you can use to reassess your defense and perhaps provide more evidence necessary to dismiss it. Even if an appeal gets thrown out such as in traffic court, the chance of it being rescinded or reduced may be worth your time in the first place. Using a service like GetDismissed could help you with this, too. This way, you may also be able to avoid other associated penalties, such as in this case, causing you to denigrate the point health of your license. This way, you can also become familiar with the judicial means of applying fines, or contact a private business regarding your contract with them and how you might renegotiate a contract to prevent this in future.


With this advice, we hope you can feel more capable in avoiding unnecessary fines now and in the future.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
