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 Even if an appeal gets thrown out such as in traffic court, the chance of it being rescinded or reduced may be worth your time in the first place.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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
