Avoid These 3 Bad Driving Habits

Avoid These 3 Bad Driving HabitsThe longer you drive, the chances are that you become more comfortable behind the wheel. While experienced drivers continue to improve their driving skills, they can also pick up bad habits. Drivers may not even notice they are doing them, but the key is to be aware, so you can practice safe driving.


If you need assistance with your traffic ticket in the Miami area, a Miami traffic attorney from Hochman & Goldin, P.A., may be able to help. Call or visit us online to set up a consultation.


One of the biggest bad habits drivers engage in is what is known as the “California Stop.” This happens when a driver does not come to a complete stop at a stop sign and just coasts through it instead. The law states that drivers must completely stop at a stop sign, so avoid making this mistake, even when you are in a rush.


Not using the appropriate turn signals could also leave you with a traffic ticket. Failing to use turn signals may even cause accidents, especially when changing lanes. Avoid this mistake to keep you and others safe on the road.


Running red lights is not something people usually do on purpose. In fact, many drivers can seek out the help of a red light camera violation attorney if they feel that their red light violation occurred because they were attempting to make the safest and smartest decision in the situation. However, you should always follow the speed limit and follow a safe distance behind the car in front of you to avoid running red lights.


Can You Legally Move Onto an Intersection While Waiting to Make a Turn?

Hochman BlogThere are many rules of the road, especially as it comes to appropriate turning. While most drivers have the basics down, many lesser-known laws can confuse drivers and lead to frustration. After all, no one wants to be stuck at a yellow light, wondering if they can turn or not.


Left turns seem to be the trickiest. Where right turns usually have clear-cut answers of when you can and cannot turn, left turns are not always as clear. If you think your traffic ticket was issued in an area without clear signage and directions, contact a Miami traffic attorney. Our law firm can help you fight your traffic ticket for as little as $69.


The best rule to remember is that you should not begin a turn, right or left, if you cannot complete it.


For example, if you want to make a left turn on a yellow light, in some cases, you may be able to exit into the intersection before the left turn (as long as all traffic signals permit). However, if you are in the intersection and you cannot complete the turn and are “stuck” in the intersection because of traffic, you may find yourself in a bind.


Always assess traffic and follow traffic signals before making turns.
