How the Driver Violation Point System affects driving privileges

In sports, it can be advantageous for someone to accumulate as many points as possible. This is because under most sets of rules, the person with the most points at the end of the game wins. However, the opposite is true for New York drivers. The more points a person acquires on their driving record, the more consequences they may have to face.

A driver can have points assigned to their record for many different types of traffic violations. Speeding will cause a driver to accumulate anywhere between three and 11 points, depending upon how fast they were going. Tailgating, failing to yield, and illegal passing are only a few of the moving violations that can cause a person to have points assessed against their driving record.

In New York, when a person reaches six or more points on their record in an 18-month period, they will have to pay a fine. If they reach 11 points on their record in an 18-month period, they could have their driver's license suspended.

The Driver Violation Point System is a tool that law enforcement officials use to track the alleged unsafe driving habits of New Yorkers. It is important that readers recognize the cumulative nature of the point system; while a single infraction may not seem very detrimental to one's driving record, several infractions over time may lead to the loss of one's license.

Keeping points off a driver's record is a good way to avoid losing one's driving privileges. If traffic violations are alleged, individuals may seek the counsel of an attorney for guidance on how to protect their licenses.
