Different Types of Traffic Violations

Traffic violations come in all shapes and sizes and can have a wide variety of impact on your budget and ability to drive. Most traffic violations result in points on your license. If you accumulate 12 or more points in a two-year period, your driver’s license will be suspended for six months. In addition, the number of points you have will impact your insurance rates. The more points you accumulate, the more your automobile insurance will cost.

What’s more, if you receive a traffic ticket and just pay the fine, that is your guilty plea. A guilty plea means you accept the points and the fine that comes with that plea. Though this may be the fastest way of dealing with a traffic ticket, it is not necessarily the best thing for you to do.

The following chart gives an abbreviated look at various traffic violations, from zero point violations, all the way through to the six point violations.
