How Many Points Will I Get For My Traffic Ticket?
The amount of points earned from traffic tickets can vary, depending on the severity of the offense. Most prosecutors are willing to be lenient on a speeding ticket case as long as it wasn’t committed in construction or school zones, if your driving record is relatively clean, and if the speeding wasn’t purposeful or excessive. However, there are always exceptions, and each prosecutor has their own policy.
Can I represent Myself in Court For My Traffic Ticket?
You do have the right to represent yourself in traffic court; however, most of the time, these cases involve 3 or more court dates or continuances, which can take 1-4 hours each, meaning you’ll likely need to take time off from work to make it to court–and losing hours can be costly, in itself. And if you plead or are found guilty, the points assessed to your driving record will result in higher insurance premiums, in addition to court fees and fines.
A speeding ticket written as a violation of state law–usually the case when you receive a ticket from a state trooper or highway patrol–will result in 3 points being assessed to your license. If the traffic ticket is written as a violation of a municipal ordinance, 2 points will be assessed. If you receive 8 points in 18 months, your license will be suspended for 30 days. 8 points in 18 months, 12 in 24, or 24 in 36 will result in a 30-day suspension. If you receive 12 points in 12 months, your license will be revoked for one year.
Your points are reduced automatically over time. A reduction of points occurs when a driver goes a full year without receiving any convictions. After a full year of driving conviction free, 1/3 of the points will be removed from your record. After the 2nd year of driving conviction free, half of the remaining points will be removed. After the third consecutive year of driving conviction free, any remaining points will be removed.
In most cases we are able to amend your traffic ticket(s) to a “non-moving violation;” thus, you are not accruing points on your driver’s record and your insurance premiums do not increase.
Although your fine will be higher when the traffic ticket is amended, you are not accruing points on your record. Don’t ruin your Driving record, spend more money on Car Insurance Premiums, or even lose a job opportunity, lose current employment, or risk your license being suspended. You have nothing to lose by contacting an attorney.
