There’s now an app to fight traffic tickets
Traffic violations can be pricey, with low-level speeding tickets costing as much as $400 in some US cities. After entrepreneur Chris Riley faced a huge fine for going less than 10mph over the speed limit in Miami, he decided to try to “give people access to services [like lawyers] in a cost efficient way,” he tells CNN Money.
So he started a business to do just that. TIKD launched its website in February and operates in Atlanta, Baltimore, Washington DC, and parts of Florida and Marylandwith the intent to expand to 30 major US markets in the coming year.
Through the app, users simply enter the time and location of the violation, the fine amount, and a photo of the ticket, and lawyers take over from there.
