Traffic violations can mean points on one's license

Having a spotless record can be important in any walk of life. With the cost of car insurance, it is wise for those in New Jersey to avoid tickets for driving infractions, which can cause their rates to rise. Additionally, many traffic violations result in points on one's record, which can lead to the suspension of his or her license.

Moving violations carry different point values. For example, failing to stop for a traffic light may result in two points, and reckless driving equals five points. Acquiring a total of 12 points means a driver's license is suspended, and this can be a great inconvenience. Only six points on one's license means the individual will pay an annual surcharge for three years. Insurance companies consider drivers with points to be high risk, so they often charge those drivers higher rates.

There are ways to remove the points from one's license. Driving for one year without a violation or taking a defensive driving course can eliminate a few points. However, if a driver already has points on his or her license, it is very easy to reach that maximum number that places his or her driving privileges at risk.

The best way to avoid these negative consequences is for drivers to remain alert and comply with New Jersey traffic laws. Those who find themselves facing traffic violations that may result in points have the option of seeking legal representation. Having an attorney to guide one through the process may result in a more positive outcome, potentially reducing or eliminating the number of points for the offense.
