Wisconsin’s Traffic Point System
Demerit points are applied to your driver’s license as a result of traffic offenses on your record such as speeding tickets, inattentive driving, failure to stop at a stop sign, or even reckless driving. Accumulating 12 or more points in a 12 month period will result in the suspension of your driver’s license.
Long story short, points are bad and the only way to prevent them or reduce them is to mount an aggressive defense when you are accused of committing a traffic violation.
“Just Pay the Ticket” Is the Wrong Answer
We understand how tempting it is to write a check, mail it in and forget this incident ever happened. Unfortunately, taking that approach can expose you to harsher consequences in the event of a future traffic incident.
“But it was a one-time thing!”
You have every intention of making that come true but, as you have already found out, it is impossible to predict what will happen when you are behind the wheel of a vehicle. A simple mistake or moment of inattentiveness could leave you facing even larger fines and additional points against your driver’s license.
