Drivers License issues.

Driving in the United States is a way of life as Americans drive more than an hour each way to work; while about 77% of Americans drive alone to their jobs as only around 11% use a carpool. A driver’s license is recognized as a legal document in every state while DUI is always considered illegal in every State.

To keep the roads safe; traffic laws are legislated to regulate the behavior of drivers, pedestrians, streetcars, animals and other transportations, either singly or together, while using the public roadway for purposes of travel. When the laws of the road are not followed, traffic violation occurred. Like other laws, any violation has a corresponding penalty.

Traffic violations are categories into types: those considered as parking violations and those considered as moving violations. A parking violation happens when: (1) motor vehicle is parked in a place that is restricted; (2) parking in an unauthorized manner; (3) park in the middle of a highway or road; and (4) parking on one or both sides of a road. Moving violation is the more serious of the two since it carries stiffer penalties, and takes place while the vehicle is moving.

The most common type of moving traffic violations is speeding over the legal limit. If the speed of the driver also threatens the lives of pedestrians or other motorists, he/she is liable to be charged for driving recklessly. Drunken driving or simply known as DUI is also illegal, as impairment of the operator behind the wheel of a vehicle poses an unsafe condition. In most states, drivers are not allowed to use a cell phone while driving. Distracted driving is illegal unless the driver is using a hand-free style device. Other traffic violations involved not using a child’s safety seat for small children and failing to fasten one’s safety belt.

Traffic violations may have variations from one state to another but basically they are considered the same as common infractions and misdemeanors (1) illegal parking; for instances in a red zone, taxi zone or bus zone, temporary zone, or in a parking spot for disabled vehicles without a sticker for disability on the vehicle; (2) running when it is a red light; (3) negotiating an illegal turn by making a turn against a light or against a posted sign; (4) failure from making a complete stop at a stop sign before passing through; (5) passing through the right-of-way when it was already taken by another driver; (6) changing lanes but failed to use the turn indicator; (7) using the carpool lane even when car does not have adequate passengers; (8) operating a vehicle with improperly functioning turn signals and poor brake lights; (9) driving a vehicle at night with no headlights; (10) transporting a load that is oversized and placed in an unsafe manner; and (11) hitting a vehicle whether it is moving or parked.

A driver that is ticketed for moving traffic violations will be counted as strikes against his or her safety record. When the driver has many strikes happening in a short period of time, his/her insurance premium is substantially increased or the insurance carrier will drop the insured, and even worst is  suspension of one’s driver’s license.

Excessive high fines are required for moving violations and some violations are worst. For example, a vehicular manslaughter is considered as felonies. For less traffic violations that are less serious, the offender can enroll in a traffic school in order to reduce the number of strikes in his/her record.

In the Motor Vehicle Dept. of the United States, they are issuing booklets that assist in educating the drivers before a license is issued. The individual must pass a driving written exam to earn a learner’s permit. The final exam requires the individual to take a driving test in the presence of a DMV employee. Another option is to enroll in a driving school.

Attending a traffic school can be a strenuous endeavor as the offender has to attend many hours of lectures & instructions that is followed by a test. If exam and course are successfully completed, the court will delete the violation from the record. Fees for traffic school are variable but the individual can petition the court to attend an online traffic school. If the court will allow the request, the offender will have to be present in court to take the test. If one opts for a traffic school, the individual must complete it, as well as pay other fines charged for the violation.
