Traffic Violations

How many points do you have against your driver's license? Have you recently paid fines for traffic tickets in addition to your most recent traffic violation ticket?

Most people do not know that every time you pay a fine, it is an admission of guilt. Points against your driver's license accumulate with every traffic ticket, moving you closer to suspension of your license.

Your driver's license may be suspended under any of the following conditions:

  • If you have 11 points or more against your license within 18 months
  • If you don't respond to a ticket in the time allowed and you don't pay the fine
  • If you are found guilty of three speeding and/or misdemeanor traffic violations within 18 months
  • If you are on new driver's license probation and you are found guilty of speeding, tailgating, unauthorized racing, driving recklessly, texting/cellphone violations or any two other types of moving violations

Points can accumulate very quickly. When they do, it is critical that you seek the advice of an experienced lawyer. A single speeding ticket conviction will result in between three and 11 points against your license, depending on how far over the speed limit you were driving.

If you fail to respond to any traffic ticket, your license can be suspended. Driving with a suspended license is a felony, and if you are convicted, you will face fines up to $5,000, jail time, probation and potential seizure of your vehicle. These are criminal charges.

Minimize The Consequences And The Costs

Accumulation of points against your license in an 18-month period triggers fees that will end up costing you hundreds of dollars. Additionally, if you have six more points in an 18-month period, you will be charged a driver responsibility assessment fee.
