Traffic tickets are issued for moving and non-moving violations and lead to demerit points on your driver’s license. Moving violations such as speeding, running a red light or stop sign, as well as DUI are among the most recognized and highly penalized. Did you know that failing to use your seat belt is also a moving violation? Second and subsequent citations for cell phone use are also considered moving violations and add 4 points to your license. It doesn’t take long for points to add up. Being unable to drive due to a suspended license is not an option for most people living far from their place of work, or who drive for a living.
