What is Rapid Point Accumulation?

Have you ever received a letter from the DMV stating you are on probation?  You aren't the only one.  DMV assess demerit points for certain types of moving violations. Depending on the severity of the offense you could receive Three (3), Four (4), or Six (6) demerit points for violations 

Once you receive Twelve (12) demerit points within a Twelve (12) month period, the DMV will send you a notice that you must complete a driver improvement clinic.  They may also require you to be placed on probation for a certain period of time.  If you receive Eighteen (18) points within a Twelve (12) month period or Twenty Four (24) points within a Twenty Four (24) month period your license can be suspended by the DMV.

People who accumulate so many points, and even after they complete probation and suspension oftentimes find it hard to keep their license clean for long periods of time.  If you have received a moving violation, and especially if you have had a few tickets within a few years, you should consult with an experienced traffic attorney about how this might impact your record
