Alabama Driver License Point System


Points are assessed for various violations as follows(Effective May 1, 2009):
  • Any conviction which resulted from a charge that involved the drinking of alcoholic beverages and the driving of a motor vehicle but did not require mandatory revocation of the driver license - 6 points
  • reckless driving or reckless endangerment involving operating a motor vehicle - 6 points
  • failure to yield right-of-way - 5 points
  • passing stopped school bus - 5 points
  • wrong side of road/illegal passing - 4 points
  • following too closely - 3 points
  • disregarding traffic control device (stop sign, traffic light, etc.) - 3 points
  • all other moving violations - 2 points
  • inability to control vehicle - 2 points
  • improper lane - 2 points
  • speeding (1 to 25 mph over speed limit) - 2 points
  • speeding (26 or more mph over speed limit) - 5 points
  • drinking alcohol while operating a vehicle - 2 points
  • admin per se - 6 points
  • improper operation of motorcycle - 2 points
  • fail to obey construction/maintenance zone markers/flagman/police officer/restricted lane - 3 points
  • emergency vehicles - 2 points
  • fail to signal/use incorrect turn signal - 2 points
  • making improper turn - 2 points
  • coasting - 2 points
  • unsafe operation - 2 points
The following schedule is used to determine the length of a suspension period
  • 12-14 points in a 2-year period ­ 60 days
  • 15-17 points in a 2-year period ­ 90 days
  • 18-20 points in a 2-year period ­ 120 days
  • 21-23 points in a 2-year period ­ 180 days
  • 24 and above points in a 2-year period ­ 365 days
After a traffic conviction is 2 years old, it loses its point count for suspension purposes but remains on a driver's record.

Thankyou!

I think I might go for a bit of coasting for 2 points - although I'm tempted to save them up to try to get 6 points so I can have a go at some reckless driving

Major kudos and karma to you dgma.

Can we fit all that on a new name tag?
And on my days off, I stump for world peace, elimination of poverty, and a perky butt for every woman over 50.

Wait.

"name dropper"?

The word is "Clique" As in:

Main Entry: clique
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: group of friends
Synonyms:
Mafia, bunch, cabal, camarilla, camp, circle, clan, club, coterie, crew, crowd, crush, faction, gang, in-group, insiders, lobby, mob, organization, outfit, pack, posse, ring, set, society (which also describes us)

New people, you have just met the "snacker of nations". Ctluthu (or however you want to spell it), whom I think is a myth.

Wait.

Whats that noise?

Actually, I think DGma (DesertGrandma) meant 'microcosm' but being a microorganism is sort of funky too.

As you go along with being a part of MobileRead, you will soon be a part that no one remembers not having around. I joined in April of 08 and now I'm a moderator. Which just goes to show that even Alex can have an off day...

You've managed to create a clique within a post to welcome new members to our family.

Maybe we scared them away?? Are we too happy? Or too weird?
