LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GetDismissed, the online web service and mobile application to assist California drivers with contesting traffic tickets, announced today a new partnership with Road Protect, a claims service that offers drivers in South Africa and Israel relief, recovery, and representation from road incidents.
The GetDismissed service assists drivers in filing paperwork to contest tickets through Trial by Written Declaration, a time-effective option that allows drivers to fight traffic tickets through written documents without having to appear in court.

Through this new partnership, Road Protect is also investing knowledge and resources to the development and advancement of the GetDismissed platform; GetDismissed will be utilizing the Road Protect call center in South Africa to introduce consumers to the GetDismissed service, placing outbound calls to a consumer database of over 100,000 people.
