Don’t like paying speeding tickets? Now you won't have too, if you buy into a new service called Trafficare.
Founded by retired police officer Troy Simpson, Trafficare works as a ticket insurance that picks up the tab for ticket fines and for subsequent increases in insurance premiums, MyFOXKC.com reported.
“A ticket is written every 2 seconds in America,“ Simpson told the TV station, “I knew that the traffic ticket industry — and it is an industry — is a billion-dollar-a-year industry nationally.”
Simpson now taps into that industry, by offering to cover ticket costs for a monthly fee of $12.95. Trafficare members are allowed up to seven moving violations per year, including “speeding, red light, seatbelt, stop sign, yield sign, illegal lane change, anything considered hazardous,” Simpson said. Parking tickets aren't included.
At $156 a year, some drivers may question the service’s worth. One Trafficare customer told the station, however, that she’s never gotten a ticket but pays for the peace of mind. Trafficare says 80 percent of its clients never get tickets, the station reported.
