Just received a traffic ticket in San Jose, CA?
San Jose, CA is the heart of the Silicon Valley. The city is the major economic, cultural and political pole in Northern California and the third biggest urban area of the state. With more than one million inhabitants, San Jose is now the tenth largest city in the United States.
Benefiting from a Mediterranean climate throughout the year tempered by the San Francisco Bay, San Jose is surrounded by mountains, and in contrast to San Francisco, the city is not located by the sea. San Francisco lies inland which protects the city from rain and smog, making San Jose a very enjoyable place to live.
The “Capital of the Silicon Valley” is known for its proximity to the high-tech companies established in its surroundings. Back in the 70s, the Silicon Valley earned its name thanks to the silicon chip innovators and manufacturers that decided to settle down in the region. As of 2017, the Silicon Valley is the home to 39 businesses in the Fortune 1000 but also thousands of innovative startups companies.
San Jose and the Silicon Valley is the leading hub and startup ecosystem for high-tech innovation and scientific research. The whole economy of the region functions on information technology, with about a quarter million workers employed in the industry. Additionally, the transportation infrastructures in San Jose are excellent with more than 2,400 miles of streets! However, traffic infractions are quite common in San Jose and just like any big city; they deliver traffic fines.
