Traffic Tickets may add NC License Points and increase insurance

A traffic lawyer will likely save you from increased insurance premiums and driver license points. Driver License Points are points placed on your driving record when a person is convicted of certain speeding ticket traffic violations. The best traffic lawyers will advise you that if a person receives 12 points or more within a three year period then it is likely their driver license will be revoked by the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles. If you are able to have your license reinstated thereafter, then 8 additional points within a three year period can result in a second suspension. If your license is suspended it may be taken for 60 days; 6 months for the second suspension; and 12 or more months for the third suspension.

Sample common license points assigned for NC convictions:

License Points Conviction
5 Passing Stopped School Bus
4 Reckless Driving
3 Running Stop Sign
2 Failure to Restrain Child
1 Littering involving Motor Vehicle
0 Improper equipment | Improper muffler

Hiring a qualified traffic lawyer may prevent additional insurance points. The automobile liability insurance rates which are paid by licensed drivers in North Carolina are determined by certain factors. The best speeding lawyers know these factors, include but are not limited to, the NC insurance rates set forth by the NC Rate Bureau; the insurance points which have accumulated during the previous three years for speeding ticket traffic violations or auto accidents; the region of the insured; the driving experience of the driver.

Sample of Insurance Points

Insurance Points Conviction or At-Fault Accident
12 Driving while Impaired | DUI DWI
10 Highway racing
8 Driving during revocation or suspension of license
4 Reckless Driving
- Passing a stopped school bus
3 At fault accident resulting in death OR total bodily injury to all person in excess of $1800 OR resulting in total property damage including insured's own property of $3000 or more
2 Illegal passing
1 Speeding 10 mph or less in excess of speed limit of less than 55 mph

In many situations if the driver voluntarily participates in a NC Defensive Driving School class then the State will consider a more substantial reduction from the charged offenses than they would without having completed the NC defensive driving school program. Completion of the NC Defensive Driving School program is generally only advised by Attorney Welborn in situations such as reckless driving or speeding at high rates of speed in excess of 93 miles per hour. If you have questions whether completion of this class / program may benefit you then speak to Jon about it.
