Stricter Penalties for Younger Drivers
The consequences of a traffic violation conviction are often more severe for younger drivers. For example, drivers who are under the age of 18 will have their driver’s licenses suspended after accumulating four points within a 12-month period.
The under-18 driver will also be required to complete a defensive driving class, take the driver’s examination again, and pay a fee to have their license reinstated. For drivers between 18 and 20 years old, accumulating 4 points on any 1 ticket will result in a 6 month license suspension.
Drivers under 21 may face an automatic six-month license suspension for:
- Hit and run
- Reckless driving
- Aggressive driving
- Purchasing alcohol
- Fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer
Whether you or your child was charged with DUI, reckless driving, or has accumulated too many points, you should seek the advice of our attorney. At McIlhinney Law Group, we fight tirelessly to protect our clients’ driving records.
