What is the point system for?

Drivers have rules to follow while they are traveling on the road. They must have a drivers license to legally be able to drive. In addition to that, they need to have their cars registered and properly insured. These drivers must also follow basic traffic laws to ensure they are operating their motor vehicle in the safest manner possible. This means they must stop whenever they see a stop sign and maintain a certain limit of speed based on speed limits that are posted in the area. These laws are important for maintaining safe traveling conditions on the road and preventing accidents from occurring. The point system is used to enforce traffic violations and to provide consequences for them. If individuals are issued a speeding ticket, they may get points on their driving record due to this charge. The number of points they can receive can depend on how many miles per hour over the speed limit that they were going. For those driving one to 14 miles per hour over the speed limit, they may face a two-point violation on their record. By going 15 to 30 miles per hour over the speed limit, they may be facing a four-point violation on their license. Those charged with speeding 30 miles per hour or more over the speed limit may face a five-point violation on their driving record. Once they reach a certain number of points on their license, they may have their license suspended.

What are some traffic violations?

Upon getting issued  a license, it is important to remember it is a privilege. These can be taken away from you if you do not follow the laws on the road. Traffic violations can include a range of unsafe practices. These violations can include speeding, driving with a suspended or revoked license, vehicular manslaughter, negligent driving, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and fraudulent use of a license. Another traffic violation can be using a cell phone while driving. These charges can lead to a variety of consequences based on the situation and the amount of charges that the individual has faced previously. By cutting down on these traffic violations, it can create safer conditions on the road.
