What Shall We Call That Traffic Violation?
Multi Tasking While Driving Is Hazardous
The most challenging activity of the day is commuting by vehicle to employment or school or even any other place that requires transportation. When the motorist gets into the car, he or she is expected to be in control of the vehicle, know how to follow the rules and to be able to be defensive. There are so many drivers out there that do forget common courtesy, and they are just too worried
or overbearing when it comes time to enter a highway. And there are the drivers that just decide that they can multi-task while behind the wheel. These are the motorists that will lose their focus, or drive as if they are too cautious. Then some may even cause themselves harm by doing something else while driving.
Have You Read Your Traffic Ticket?
Have you ever tried to read a traffic violation ticket? Full of numbers, letters attached by dashes and dots. Generally when a person is pulled over, the experience is so embarrassing or horrifying that no one can understand the officers handwriting, and the carbon is too hard to read. The placement of speed cameras and red light cameras are on the increase in my location, but there are still patrolmen for the local district as well as the State Police Patrol on the lookout for faulty drivers. Not only do they watch for driving behaviors but they can just look up Motor Vehicle Information from the license plate as well.
So, how do Traffic Police identify the different kinds of distracted drivers? By their behavior in their own way. For instance, the most typical driving behavior subject to violation is : DWI - driving while intoxicated, or the more recently named DUI - Driving Under the Influence (of drugs, alcohol). I thought of some other Abbreviations that could be used by the traffic police that it makes the common driver understand what they could be given a violation for. Here is my list:
TWD Texting While Driving PWD Phoning While Driving DWAI Driving Without Automobile Insurance IWD I-Pod (in use)While Driving AMWD Applying Makeup While Driving HSWD Hair Styling While Driving EWD Eating While Driving DD Driving Drowsy DWNCSS Driving With No Child Safety Seats DWDIL Driving With Dog In Lap DWWTV Driving While Watching TV BFBWD Breastfeeding Baby While Driving HSWD Having Sex While Driving SSWD Student Studying While Driving

Going To Traffic Court
As a daily drive my vehicle, I can only speak for how I commute. I am not perfect, I have gotten tickets, I have gone through intersections with red light cameras before. I have been to traffic court before. All I know is that a calm cool attitude gets one through the experience of being by an officer during times of a traffic violation. It is a nice thing to go to court with an attorney, but to be honest and claim guilty gets one a PBJ (plead before judgement). That is how it is settled in the traffic court that I have been in. Usually, PBJ will lower the monetary fines.
So be a safe motorist. Stay alert, focused. Don't hog the road, and if you get pulled over, don't appear anxious, and be cooperative. Even though getting pulled over is an uncomfortable experience, it can be less stressful when handled peacefully.
