Point System In Kentucky
The state of Kentucky has a point system that is used to punish drivers who have consistently practiced unsafe driving habits. Many insurance companies will raise a driver’s rates if the driver accumulates points on his or her driving record. Points remain on one’s driving record for two years and accumulate with further traffic violations.
The point system is divided up based on the seriousness of the violation. For example, a zero-point violation includes driving 10 mph or less over the speed limit on a limited-access highway, whereas a 6-point violation includes driving 16-25 mph beyond the speed limit.
When you are ready to prepare your case, your first step should be to schedule a private case evaluation with our firm. During this assessment, we can determine the most appropriate route to take to resolve your particular situation. If you are a commercial truck driver for instance, your case will look different from others given your unique circumstances. Penalties for a traffic violation will also differ from situation to situation.
Many violations can lead to license suspension, revocation or cancellation. If you are ready to fight your ticket, whether it involves speeding, not stopping for a school bus or running a red light, we can help.
