    Understanding the D.C. Points System

    As a driver, it's important to familiarize yourself with the points system. This critical aspect of traffic law enforcement is in place to encourage safe driving habits. It works by assigning demerit “points” to a driver’s record after a traffic violation. The severity of the infraction dictates the number of points added. For example, minor violations like speeding may result in fewer points, while more serious offenses like DUI or reckless driving carry more points. 

    Accumulating too many points can jeopardize your driving privileges, potentially leading to the suspension or revocation of your driver's license. Accruing 8 to 11 points may result in a license suspension, while 12 or more points can lead to license revocation. At Riley Legal, we have years of experience protecting against demerit points that threaten your ability to drive lawfully. 

    Our firm can guide your steps wisely throughout the complexities of your DMV or MVA hearing to challenge point assessments, restore your driving privileges, and protect your freedom on the road. Whether you're facing points for a recent citation or are at risk of suspension or revocation due to point accumulation, turn to Riley Legal for the personalized defense strategy you need.
