Driving through mine fields in Ecuador: Photo fines

“What? I don’t have any fines or tickets.”  I replied to the guy who I sold my car to here in Ecuador this week.

“Yes, you do, you have two open photo fines.(foto multas)” He responded.

He was right, I didn’t even realize it, and usually you don’t in Ecuador until it’s time to pay your annual registration (matricula).

This past year I passed through Ambato twice, and BOTH times they nabbed me taking a picture of my plates.  Once going 52km in a 50km zone, and again going 56km in a 50km zone.

Each ticket $112.

Yet, driving all year around the coast and Quito areas I didn’t get ONE.

I’ve found the Ambato, Ibarra and Loja areas particularly bad, so be extra careful driving around there. Explanations of causes of the traffic misdemeanors like speeding to get to a hospital, or parking in front of a fire hydrant due to a sudden emergency require a plausible explanation to the judge. Where there is no reason or excuse other than negligence, a traffic attorney might be able to help you get a judgment with which you are satisfied.

There are several attorneys that rush to the accident scenes with the intention of representing the victims showing a thriving entrepreneurial spirit.  These are just a few in the big-money spectrum that is considered a growing legal market. However, it’s the speeders and drunk drivers who are chasing the lawyers to represent them before judges. However there are concerns with whether the traffic lawyers deliver the goods. The lawyers get the tickets dismissed since they know the technicalities. The lawyers also know which tickets they can’t get dismissed and since when the ticket is perfect, on the courts side, there is not much the lawyer will to be able to do for you, so they make a bargain or plea on such.

The traffic ticket lawyers are great if one doesn’t have time to go to court or if their driving record isn’t great. Did you know that a traffic ticket attorney can help you to fight undeserved fines? You can get the justice you deserve, even when it comes to driving. In today’s economy, you cannot afford to spend money on unnecessary speeding fees. If you know that you were driving at the mandatory speed limit, you don’t have to settle for unfair treatment. Some cops patrol the streets in hopes of pinning fines on hundreds of drivers. But you need your hard-earned money to pay bills, buy gas, and other necessities of everyday life. Let a lawyer represent you during this time of need.

If renting a car usually the rental company will check to see if you got any photo tickets before returning your deposit.

If issued tickets if you were going just a bit over like in my case you can challenge the ticket with a lawyer in the municipality where you got ticketed.  I’m paying $60 per ticket to the lawyer for help, he says takes a few weeks to process.  This process is called IMPUGNAR.  It’s common to pay lawyer once job is DONE.

You can see if the plate you were driving got any tickets nationally at this link… But some municipalities don’t show up on the national system for months after ticket issued so you can also check directly on their websites (here is the Ambato one).  You can see what my tickets look like if you plug in my old plate number (placa) LBB4559.

How to beat the big boys in Ecuador accepting barter

Like with any small business you put in Ecuador, you’re going to have competitors with DEEP multi-million dollar pockets.In my case for my 19 room hotel near the Quito airport, I compete with the Wyndham an international chain.

So how can a little guy like me or you when against these corporate dicks.

Of course, there’s always charge less than them.

But there’s other creative ways to beat these guys too.

Like what I started to do this week: Offering alternative payment methods, bringing me to the bitcoin revolution review at cryptoevent that I read a couple days ago and have concluded that Bitcoin payments are seamlessly fast.

You could also try accepting Bitcoin. I’ve used this kind of Crypto currency in the past to make anonymous transactions and shipping. It’s as easy as creating a digital wallet through bitshares exchange or an app like Blockchain.  Search for it on Google Play Store.  Download and you get a digital address people can send Bitcoin too. It has a learning curve but you get the hang of it quickly.  I now accept Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency is just a part of the process of a virtual database running in the virtual world. The identity of the real person here cannot be determined. Also, there is no centralized authority which governs the trading of cryptocurrency. This currency is equivalent to hard gold preserved by people and the value of which is supposed to be getting increased by leaps and bounds. The electronic system set by Satoshi is a decentralized one where only the miners have the right to make changes by confirming the transactions initiated. They are the only human touch providers in the system. Here is the best tron crypto news source.

For instance a month ago on a trip to the States I noticed many younger people in the States like my brother pay for everything with Cash App, a free phone application that connects to your bank account and allows you to make payments to other users quickly and super easy.  I now accept Cash App.

I also started playing Sloto Cash Casino At Army Of Bitcoin, you can bet with bitcoin and cash out. You could also accept barter.  Why should we be forced to always accept fiat money, aka cash?  Why not except goods in exchange for a service.  For instance, I have someone coming from the States bring me something they buy (so they can verify the contents), and on arrival I reimburse what they spent as per their receipt for the item and for the act of bringing it I offer the room free. If they item can net a $100 gain here, I now sold my normally $40 room for $100.  I now accept barter, too.  Email me if you need a room. Recently, Bitcoin retraced to almost $5000; Bitcoin Cash came close to $500 while Ethereum found peace at $300. Virtually every coin got hit-apart from newcomers that were still in excitement stage. As of this writing, Bitcoin is back on track and its selling at $8900. Many other cryptos have doubled since the upward trend started and the market cap is resting at $400 billion from the recent crest of $250 billion. With hundreds of different online casinos choosing the most trusted online casino will remain very important. Especially with the online casino laws.

The big guys move a lot slower and it may be years before they adopt these alternative payment options that gives you the advantage in the eyes of some customers.
