Drivers ticketed more frequently during pandemic
According to The Washington Post, law enforcement agencies across the country are reporting an increase in reckless driving and speeding tickets since the Coronavirus pandemic began earlier this year.
Many people are hitting the road to escape home quarantine and gas prices continue to drop. But handling a traffic ticket is becoming even more complex as courtrooms continue to adapt to the ever-changing protocol to keep the community healthy.
