What are major traffic violations in Ohio?
Earlier posts discussed some of the minor traffic violations in Ohio, those that would result in a ticket and a fine. Now we will discuss some of the major traffic violations that will cost you more than a few hundred dollars. As with minor traffic offenses, major traffic offenses can add up. Under Ohio Law, drivers accumulate points against their driver’s license for various moving violations. Drivers who have accumulated 12 points within a 2-year period will have their drivers license suspended. Rather than hand out 2 points at a time for the minor traffic violations, the courts often hit drivers with up to 6 points against their driver’s license.
