How To Avoid Paying For Speeding Tickets

Are you the type of driver who always ends up paying for speeding tickets? I yes, then it’s time to make a few changes in your driving style and get a couple of devices which can warn you beforehand. Just take a look at a couple of things you must do to help avoid paying for speeding tickets.

  • Make a conscious effort to keep the speed low

The cops are always on the lookout for people who are driving faster than other drivers on the road. So, try to drive close to the general flow of cars so that you can match your speed with the others.

  • Keep a look out for the cops’ radar

If you by any chance are the only car ahead in the pack of cars, you need to keep an eye for the cops’ radar trap. The safest thing to do if you are not able to keep a watch is to stay in the middle of the pack, where you are least likely to be targeted.

  • Stay away from fast lanes

This the lane that the cops are watching with a Hawkeye. Also, this is the lane you are most likely to speed on without actually keeping an eye on the speed limits, making you end up getting fined.

  • Watch out for brake lights ahead

A clear indication that’s the cops are doing their job is when you notice the drivers ahead of you suddenly braking. It’s a hint for you to control your speed.

  • Install a laser Jammer

Another device used by the cops to track down speeding drivers is a laser gun.  Installing a laser jammer will prevent the laser gun from getting a reading off your vehicle and give you enough time to slow down.

  • Get a good Radar detector installed

Buying a radar detector is better than paying speeding tickets. Installing this device in your vehicle will give you an advanced warning so that you can quickly slow down before the cops track you down with a radar gun and catch up with you. Just make sure you get one with good reviews and positive feedbacks.…

Final Paycheck Is Your Right

Employers must provide the employees with their final wages in a timely manner. It doesn’t matter whether the employer has terminated the employee, laid off or the employee has resigned voluntarily. The final wages must be paid in full and on time. If not so, then the employee can seek a penalty in addition to the wages owed. In addition to that, the employee can also recover other costs like the attorney’s fees if he/she prevails in an action for unpaid wages. The below points can be considered as a guide to getting your final paycheck in California.

Final Payment and Termination

When the employer lays off or terminates an employee, the employer must immediately pay the employee all his earned and unpaid wages. It must be done on the same day and at the place of discharge.

Final Payment and Resignation

When an employee quits his job without notice, then the employer must provide his final wages within 3 days of resignation. But if the employee provides notice well in advance (72 hours or more), then the employee must be paid on his is last work day and the payment must be made at the employer’s office. If the payment must be sent by mail, then it needs the employee’s consent.

More About Final Wages

All regular wages and overtime wages, and payment for unused as well as accrued vacation time are considered as part of the final wages. If the final payments are paid late or incomplete, penalty needs to be paid by the employer. The waiting time penalty would accrue on weekend days too and the employer needs to pay a day of pay for each day the employee has not been fully paid. The pay must be as per the employee’s regular rate of pay.

In case the employer hasn’t made the payment (unpaid wages and penalty), then the employee can bring it before the labor commission or in the court. Say, for example, if the employer has paid the final paycheck but has not included overtime wages, the penalty for such exclusion begins to accrue from the date of termination.
