Often people do not contest traffic tickets. However, simply paying a fine for the ticket can have major implications for drivers. Most traffic offenses have a point value assigned to them. If the number of points from traffic offenses against a driver’s license exceeds twelve points, the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles suspends the driver’s license. Points assessed against a driver’s license can cause insurance premiums to increase for the driver. Also, conviction of driving offenses can seriously affect individuals who must drive an automobile for work. In fact, the conviction of certain driving offenses can impair employment opportunities in certain circumstances.
