Nothing spoils a day faster than a traffic ticket!
One 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 [lawyers] in a cost efficient way."
TIKD launched a website back in February and operates in Atlanta, Baltimore, Washington DC and parts of Florida and Maryland. They will be expanding to 30 major US markets SOON!
Here's how it works: users just enter the time and location of the violation, fine amount, and a photo of the ticket and then lawyers take over from there. There is just a one time fee to cover the cost of the startup's services, but it is always less than the original ticket. Plus, they are fully insured, if you get points on your license, TIKD will pay for the original ticket & refund it's fee.
Don't think about using it for tickets involving minors, alcohol, serious injury or death. They deal solely with people making everyday, simple mistakes.
Let's hope we get this in California soon! Check out the videos below
