Traffic Violations in North Carolina
In North Carolina, all car insurance companies must be members of the North Carolina Rate Bureau (NCRB), which developed the Safe Driver Incentive Plan. Under this plan, drivers are assigned points based on a special system of classification which includes surcharges depending upon the number of points accumulated. These points stay on your insurance for three policy years, and the surcharges range from a 25% to 400% of your current policy premium.
Additionally, traffic violations count as points on your driver’s license under North Carolina’s Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If you accumulate 12 points in a 3 year period, your license will be suspended.
For the reasons above, you should hire a traffic attorney who can contest your ticket and help you avoid points. Add jail time and fines into the equation, and working with an attorney is the logical conclusion.
