  • O.J. Simpson chased by police in his Ford Bronco

    What do you think is the biggest cause of road rage? Failure to use turn signals would be up there, and seeing others talking on their cellphones or texting has to be high on the list as well. According to Nevada Highway Patrol, the number one issue that causes road rage is folks hogging the left lane on a highway. They clog up the passing lane for reasons that vary from a vapid mindset of not paying attention to those who believe it's their duty to enforce the speed limit. Regardless of the why, the left-lane hog is a highway scourge and now the state of Nevada has done something about it...

  • Man caught going 112 mph while using Snapchat Photo: Alpharetta DPS
    Georgia man caught going 112 mph 'for Snapchat'

    We don't think it's a tough concept: keep off your phone while driving. Alas, it takes more than a stern tone for the message to get through to some drivers. Maybe now this guy will understand how serious of an offense it is. Malon B. Neal, 24, was arrested after Alpharetta, Georgia police pulled...

  • 2015 Hellcat
    Hellcat owner jailed after clocking 158 mph on public road

    Here's an instance where the black key would have helped the owner of this 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, rather than unlocking the full potential of the car with the famed red key. Maybe. Determined to show off all 707 horsepower in his new ride, an Illinois man piled his buddies into his 2016...

    Judge Rules That Flashing Of Headlights Is Free Speech

    In most states, it’s common practice to flash your headlights to warn of road hazards ahead. The warning can apply to a wide range of dangers, but it’s most often used to warn oncoming motorists about police speed enforcement. In a perfect world, law enforcement would support this...

    Iowa Man Convicted Of 188-MPH Run From Police

    A Council Bluffs, Iowa man was convicted of attempting to elude police at speeds up to 188 mph, following a 2009 traffic stop.

  • Traffic enforcement camera

    It's an awful feeling: That moment you open a letter to find an image of your car inside and a citation for speeding. Many would grit their teeth and pay up - do the crime, pay the time, as they say. Not for Will Foreman. The Washington businessman has beaten the charges on five occasions so far, and far from exploiting a loop-hole in the system, Mr Foreman has used a simple calculation to prove beyond reasonable doubt that his drivers haven't been speeding. The best part is that he has used the photos taken by the camera itself to disprove its results. The majority of the tickets issued to...

    NFL Star Charms Way Out Of Ticket With Autograph, Brags On Twitter

    Being courteous and coming clean with officers of the law--especially when you know you've done wrong--is often a route to warning instead of a ticket, even for the most average of citizens, but more often than not, our autograph simply assures us a court date and a fine. But if you've got star...

  • 2010 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
    Study: Mercedes SL-Class Drivers Four Times More Likely To Get A Ticket

    If you drive a Mercedes-Benz SL-Class convertible, you've probably gotten a speeding ticket, according to a new study from Verisk Analytics. If you drive a Buick Rainier, you probably don't know what a ticket looks like. The study found the SL-Class to be the most-ticketed car, at a rate four times...

    Jessica Alba's Smile Meets L.A.'s Thin, Unimpressed Blue Line

    Poor Jessica Alba. The girl can't seem to catch a break. Sure, she's been genetically gifted. Sure, she's got a handsome husband and a cute kid. But Good Luck Chuck? The Love Guru? Ouch. Now she's been pulled over by one of Los Angeles' finest. Our powers of telepathy are on the fritz today (damn...

    Mark Wahlberg's Hollywood Stop Earns Him A Hollywood Ticket

    Dear Marky Mark: Time is a cruel mistress, isn't she? Always in a rush, always aloof. You stop to tie your shoe, and by the time you look up, she's halfway down the block, ducking into Starbucks for another double-shot cappuccino with soy. (As if she needs more energy, right?) Heck, just look at...

    Tara Reid Still Matters

    Remember that face? It's Tara Reid, the Neve Campbell of her generation. Ah, memories. We haven't heard much from Tara lately, apart from occasional tidbits about her ongoing plastic surgery troubles and certain photos unfit for family-friendly websites like this one (but which can easily be...

  • 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita

    Ah, supercar owners. The very wealthy amongst us, the ones who drive the toys we crave. Especially through the cities we live in. Even owning a supercar, though, doesn't exempt you from abiding by the laws of the land. Including, ummmmmm, parking regulations. As two London drivers learned the hard way last week. A Koenigsegg CCXR, one of only six made, was parked nose-to-tail with a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce outside Harrods department store, in the ultra-pricey Knightsbridge neighborhood. And both were clamped by London's ever-zealous parking enforcement officers (the British...

    Could College Parking Tickets Come Back To Haunt You?

    So responsibility slips a bit, and in the rush to get your term paper finished you forgot to pay the meter, or parked in the wrong place with the wrong parking pass.

Referring to the May 30 incident, his lawyers wrote to magistrates asking for a court adjournment because the Brawn GP team owner and boss is currently abroad. The...

    Italian red-light camera maker charged with fraud

    Red-light cameras and 'smart' traffic lights have been criticized as nothing more than cash cows for the cities that use them to ensnare unwary drivers. Now an investigation unfolding in Italy may be shining a light on even darker practices. More than merely catching out drivers that push the...
